Honestly, I'm not sure I have ever listened to AM radio in the house. I can
see where you may get some interference. I would suggest trying a better
power strip. One that is designed for use with AV equipment. There has been
some discussion on this list in the past about the pros and cons of various
brands. You could search the archive, or perhaps someone will chime in.

Glad you have seen the wonders of the squeezebox. The only person who has
ever seen my squeezebox and was under-whelmed was my 12 year old son, but I
think that's because I didn't have enough "Korn" on the server. :)

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Just received my Squeeze Box. What A GREAT Product!!! 4 of my friends are
ordering there's this week.

The only problem I have found is an Electrical interference with AM stations
by the AC adapter.
Is this common?

The important thing is to minimise the amount of EMI coming from the
Squeezebox, so as not to affect other users of AM in the vicinity. So perhaps
you could put some ferrite rings on the power cable.
