Hi

I've lost the power cord for my UK squeezebox when moving home. I was going to buy a replacement direct, but when you add $30 shipping then it's $45 which seems excessive!

Do you know if it is possible to buy a generic power supply and use that, and if so what specifications I need to make sure I get...

Anyone in the UK with a link to one they know is ok would be even better!!

Thanks
Brett

Multi-page discussions and flame wars about replacement linear power supplies over here:

Some insist that a linear PS dramatically improves the sound.

You might be able to source one locally for less than the equivalent of $45.

Maplin Order code: L06BR

It's a regulated 2500mA AC adaptor, you can select the voltage and it works. It cost me 9. I can't find it online- I just went in with the original and the guy gave me the right one.

BTW. It sounds...


...the same.

I have a stock of original new UK SB PSUs. So if you want one, just drop me a line and I'm sure we can come to an arrangement.
