I tried it yesterday with my friend's transformer, a small brick that is plugged directly to the wall outlet. It is maybe 2 inches by 1.5 by 1.5 or something like that, and I wouldn't dare to drive it at its maximum rating (50 watts) for a longer period, as it gets mighty hot very easily. At over 70 watts, the SP9000 was almost 50% overload. > There's an electronics shop here in town that sells 300W (and higher) > 110<->220 step-up/step-down transformers for about $25.00. That's a simple transformer with 2:1 winding ratio, right? The price doesn't sound awfully expensive. Having their contact info doesn't hurt, although I have at least 3 friends who could lend their transformers to me. I think I will move the SP9000 board to my 8032-SK or 8032 (once I get the latter back from another friend of mine). My 8032 has an interesting daughter board that could be a 64k expansion. I'll make a picture of it as soon as I get the machine back (maybe in a couple of weeks, I don't have a car). Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
