Just a quick note to say the blog has moved. is its new home.

I will no longer be updating this site so please come join me at the new location and see which cable I’m working on this month.

Here is the next one on the list.

ST-JX301 Tuner

TC-W301 Cassette

This shares a System Control cable with the TA-AX285 system.

The 11-5-5pin cable (System Control Cable #2) is interchangeable, although Sony gave it a new part number of 1-559-852-21

I will update the description for System Control Cable #2 to reflect this on

System Control #2 Fits both TA-AX285 and TA-AX301


The System Cable #1 is different with an 11-11-5 pin connector.  Currently, I do not have the part number for this cable.

Here is the system control #1 cable.

RCA PA 110-10 CA 110-10 TA 110-10

Hey guys,

Switching up manufacturers this month.  I now have available the 7 to 7 to 5 pin cable that was used on this RCA PA 110-10 Amp to connect it to the Cassette (CA 110-10) and the Tuner (TU 110-10).  I have contacted RCA about the correct part number for this stereo but was told that it was too old and they no longer had that information.   If anyone can provide me with the part number for the connector that would be greatly appreciated.

Here are some photos of the unit and factory cable.
