It seems that the interference is actually generated
by the power supply, and is passed through your
squeezebox/slimp3 to the stereo electrically if you
use coax or RCA connections. From there it can be
radiated quite effectively to the AM radio receiver of
your choice ;)

I don't have optical inputs either, so I spent $11 at
eBay on a no-name 5 volt 2 amp regulated p/s and
spliced the original p/s connector on to it. Works
