I too had this problem. The ONLY place I could find it, after extensive searching, was directly from the manufacturer. I was sure I could find it used or something somewhere cheaper, but could not find it anywhere. I emailed and they replied as follows:

It's a little expensive, but I guess not as expensive as replacing the whole system! Good luck!

I picked up a second cdx8 for free from someone who was moving. Unfortunately the cable was missing. I'd like to find one too. Have you had any luck finding a new cable?

It may be expensive to have someone replace the connector. One option is to squirt some silicone around the base, being careful to still allow contact to be made to the iPod dock connector. You could get a dock extension cable (see link below). It may fit better and will reduce the strain on the Bose connector. If it's still loose, you could glue the extender cable in.

Alternatively, you could use a 3.5 mm audio cable to connect the iPod headphone jack to the Aux-in jack on the back of the Bose. Just living with it may be prudent.

You cannot use a two pin connector as there are three lines, +18, -18 and ground. While you can connect the two ground lines together, you still need to accommodate the split power rails.

The easiest way would be to fit a 3 pin mini-din plug. However, you are going to be looking long and hard to find a replacement power supply on tevshelf that can produce the two rail voltages required at a suitable current.

In the interest of protecting your dock from damage, and given the amount of work required to make the change, you are far better to bite the bullet and purchase a replacement supply from Bose.

Of course, you may be able to source a Chinese clone supply from China on the eBay website - perhaps worth a look... :o)

Need to connect a 6 cannel 9 pin audio cable subwoofer to a standard audio receiver. is there an adapter to make it plug into rca javks?

Nothing commercially available as the pin-outs are all different and 9 pin din is a non standard connector. Contact the manufacturer directly and ask tech support for pin out diagram.

I need the connector cable for a yamaha tcd av1 and need a part number please any help is appreciated

The connector appears to be an 8-pin mini-DIN connector.
I got one from an old Apple system, but I haven't been able to get my TCD-AV1 to power on. It may be due to another problem, though. Hope this might help!

Bose sound dock

Had the same problem, worked just to rotate the power cable into the back of the sound dock. Printing on the plug goes on top. It worked like a gem, after trying new batteries, resetting, was just an incorrectly placed plug!! Thanks for the help!! Listening now to some great music!
