Hi, first of all greetings from Florence, Italy.

Directly to the spot: I had nearly completed my autohypnose procedure to force myself to buy a squeezebox, carefully ignoring all wise voice that told me not to spend my money in this sort of things, when I was assaulted by a pair of amlethic doubt...

first doubt

website is the only way to buy it?

shipping costs will be huge to ship it in italy...

second doubt:

assuming that I must buy it by website, does this device arrive at my home with the correct feeder (220 V AC instead of 11 V AC US Standard and the right kind of jack (european std is different from US power jacks)....


Can you enlight me?

You have to say when ordering (I think it may be in a comments section fo the order form) what power plug you need.

you can buy it from Slimdevices' website, and they will ship the right power unit for the country they are shipping to.

Or you can buy from one of the European resellers listed at http://www.slimdevices.com/au_resellers.html

Ciao

No. There are resellers (http://www.slimdevices.com/au_resellers.html),
though none in Italy(?!?).

Per semplicita' rispondo in Italiano:
1) In Europa puoi acquistare senza spese doganali ma in Italia non mi risulta nessun importatore/rivenditore;
2) Le spese di spedizione sono elevate ma la spedizione e' velocissima e sicura (UPS); consiglio di risparmiare qualche dollaro e scegliere la spedizione meno veloce, tanto arriva lo stesso in 2 giorni (qui a Milano, a Firenze qualche ora dopo). Considera le spese doganali + le spese di UPS in oltre il 20% sull'importo dichiarato. Da considerare il favorevole cambio Eur/Usd e, soprattutto l'offerta 2Squeezebox=-100$.
3) Il trasformatore e' multitensione e con presa di corrente europea: lo spediscono in funzione del paese di destinazione.
