I received my SqueezeBox 3 today from advancedmp3players.co.uk - after having played with SoftSqueeze I was quite looking forward to the real thing! Excitedly opened the packaging, delved through the bits and pieces - and then found a 2 pin plug on the power supply! I'm in the UK and the sticker on the box says it's a UK version :(

So now I have to wait till Monday before I can contact the sellers :(

Has this happened to anyone else?

The adaptor does say 100-240V, so I think it's a EU plug (the pins are round so it's not a US one). Would I get away with just using an EU-UK socket adaptor rather than waiting to get a replacement power supply?

John.

Bad luck! I'm sure we can all appreciate the frustration... I think you'd be perfectly safe to use an adaptor, assuming you have one to hand that is. If not Dixons would probably sell you one for a fiver!

That sounds like the plug we have over here on the continent.
If the adaptor says it is up to your voltage & frequency, it should
work... If you have an adaptor, I would go for it. I've never had
problems with any electronics that have appropriate voltage/frequency
ratings with adaptors.

AdvancedMp3Players sent me a new UK power supply, without me having to send anything back, within a couple of days of me contacting them - so they get good marks for customer service :)
