    If one were inclined to go this route, best to buy a PSA050R-090 (which is the correct volts and amps) from DigiKey or Allied Electronics, and then splice the old barrel connector to it. Personally, my skills aren't good enough to chance it.

    I posted my message because there was faulty info in this thread. I'm sure you had the best of intentions, but unfortunately you are muddying the waters again. I'm not sure what a "suplirs" is, but as I said before, learn from my mistakes. There may be a whole bunch of different connectors, but NONE of them will be 3.5mm OD, 1.05mm ID. If anyone finds a connector or adapter for sale that is 3.5mm OD, 1.05mm ID, please post a link. Until then, do not buy a universal adapter with a variety of connectors. It will not help, because none of them will be 3.5mm OD, 1.05mm ID, and you will have wasted your money.

    Cheers.

    Anyone got an idea where to find a good adapter in Europe?
    Is it still Logitech part store that is the best place?

    If they still have the PSU why not ?

    I'm not inclined to save 10$ and burn my house down with some sub par part from ebay ?

    I picked this one up last month for $11.99, unfortunately they've now raised the price to $15.96. It came with a barrel connector adapter to fit the Receiver and is working fine. Still a bit cheaper than Logitech replacement if you're a prime member when you figure in shipping costs. It was next day delivery in my area, so instant gratification bonus.

    I purchased 2 of these https://www.ebay.com/itm/AC-Adapter-...d/121090178785 from ebay the last time I had one die, which was fortuitous since one of them died 3 month later.

    I have had an odd experience where the replacement power supply doesn't work initially, but connecting the receiver which had the failed power supply to an original Logitech supply has fixed the problem where the replacement power supply works on subsequent connections, so I'm going to pick up 2 of the replacements direct from Logitech in the, likely, event my ebay replacement dies.

    Annoyingly Logitech UK doesn't seem to sell Squeezebox spare parts. It directs me to the US site, and then offers me no country to ship to except USA. One of my Reciever PSUs has died, I am using a spare but would like to replenish my stock. Someone once mentioned a suitable PSU from Maplin, does anyone have the part number?

    Anyway I've ordered one. It can't be much worse than the Logitech supply given how frequently they fail based on the reports here. I have had no other small (or large) switched mode power supply fail on me, and I have a fair number in the house supplying cordless phones, DACs, ethernet switches and routers etc.

    Now my Receiver PSU has failed completely, thinking back on the increasing problems I've had for the last few years I believe this PSU has been marginal for at least three years.
