Hi,
I've one or two questions..
- If I purchase the Squeezebox and get it shipped to the states , does it
come with a 110v power supply or a 110/220v changeable supply ? The reason
I'm asking is that $80 shipping to Ireland is crazy ! Why can't you post US
mail or charge a reasonable price ? The Squeezebox is twice the price from
some rip off crowd at 400 Euro. In the UK it's 200 sterling, still about
twice the price.

- If I purchase the US version and it only has a 110v power supply can I
purchase the UK power supply ($15) and simply swap them ?

- I can't wait to purchase my squeezebox someday soon !Thanks for the great
product.

Dan,

Are you handy with a soldering iron or wire nuts? If so, it is not
that difficult to buy an overrated power supply in Ireland and use the
connector from the US power supply. At the point it enters the
SqueezeBox it is DC volts. Since the Slim folks look like they have
minimized the number of custom parts (to save themselves superfluous
tooling costs), I expect that you can probably find the appropriate
connector at some electronic hobbiest store.
