    Default Squeezebox Power Supply Replacement

    I've been looking to buy a replacement power supply for my Squeezebox 3. The wall wart that comes with the Squeezebox is a cheap switching power supply. I'd like to get a beefier linear power supply to see if it makes a difference in sound quality.

    This thread (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=20855) over at the Slim Devices forums has some good information, but everything they mention requires some sort of DIY modification. For instance, Elpac makes a linear power supply that will work, but you have to splice your own ends onto it as well as do some internal wiring to get it to work.

    I know Bolder Cables does some modifications, but I don't really want to spend $150+ dollars. I just want a simple 5V DC, 1.5A, Linear power supply that will work out of the box without any mods.

    Anyone know where I could find such a thing?

    I was under the impression that the Elpac Wm-075 was plug and play, as long as you purchase it with the right connector. Should be around $50, something like this should be the ticket.

    Thanks for the link, Jared!

    I have looked at this PS before (based on the recommendation of some of the Slim Devices forum participants), but I am unable to tell what kind of connector is on it. Some people have mentioned that it has a DIN connection that would have to be replaced.

    The only plug & play adapter I've heard mentioned is the WM075-1950-760 but that was discontinued years ago and no one has any stock.

    EDIT: I've confirmed that the link you mentioned has a DIN connection, not the type of connection that the Squeezebox needs.

    Any other thoughts?

    I know Welbourne Labs makes one but it is around $300. You could wait it out for a modded one, as the WM220 usually goes for around $150 used, and you can usually find a modded WM075 for below $100. I just snagged one for $85 off Audiocircle.

    Conversely if you have a stock Squeezebox now you might try and find a Red Wine modded one, runs of battery power so you don't need to worry about a fancy power supply.
