View Full Version : I killed my Slim :/

2 for 1 bargain in this email -- you get a sad story with a moral and a
plea for help.

This weekend I had to disassemble my entire home stereo setup and move
it out of the living room so that we could do some fix-up work on the
house. Sunday night I start reassembling everything and of course hook
up my SliMP3 as one of the first things so I can have music to listen to
while I move the rest of the furniture. Unfortunately I picked up the
wrong power supply to plug into the SliMP3. My wireless base station's
power supply looks almost identical to the slim one, but alas puts out
very different power. Long story short, within 30 seconds smoke was
pouring out of my (now dead) device. I almost cried. Moral of the story:
Make sure you keep the right power supply with your Slim and don't try
swapping out a different one -- it won't work.

Now for the plea. Is there any place I can get an original SliMP3? I
guess I'll buy the Squeezebox if not, but I much prefer the look of the
original one and I do not need wireless connectivity for it. Can anyone
help please?

Thanks for any help,
Victor
