Trying to follow those digikey links to the "for use with" items, I'm only seeing the sled-side pieces, not the player-side pieces. frown

Aha, there we go.

Had to open up the datasheet PDF and locate the mfr part number and type that into the search box at Digikey.

Except, looking at the actual player itself, even though that's the correct number of pins, the picture doesn't look right for their arrangement compared to the player.

This one looks a lot more like it. Still some minor differences but those might just be cosmetic? Hm.

Edit: Ima order me summa dat.

Except... ARGH... there are four different kinds of crimp terminals listed that go with that part. Which one is the correct one?

Aha: Figured it out. The connector has two different kinds of slots: The 22 "signal" terminals and the 2 "power" terminals.

Each of those types of crimp terminals comes in two flavors: Thin wire and thick wire flavors.

I think I can make an informed buying decision now.

Thanks for your help in getting me started on locating the part, Shonky!

For future reference for this thread, it's the QR/P6 SERIES, not the QR/P1 SERIES that we want.

Following up: Yes, that turns out to be the correct part for the MK2 player-side docking connector, the QR/P6 Series. The parts I received fit perfectly.

The blade terminals that are linked to it come in four flavors: Large terminals for the two large power pins, and smaller terminals for the remaining smaller docking pins. Each of those comes in two flavors for two different gauges of wire to crimp.
