Greetings, I am in the market to buy a Squeezebox Boom Network Music Player. I live in Australia, but I would like to ask a friend who is visiting the USA to pick one up for me because there is a substantial cost saving over purchasing the product here in Australia. I looked at the video on the Logitech website, and it appears as though the chord for the power supply retracts into the rear of the body of the radio, is this correct?
I would also like to know if the power supply is dual voltage, i.e. 110-240V, or whether it is 110V only. Could anyone who has physical contact with one of therese devices confirm the voltaqge range printed ont he power supply?
One final question directed at owners who subscribe to Sirius Radio, can you pause and rewind? If so how much time is stored in the buffer? Can you go back say 30 minutes like you can witht he Sirius Sportster range of satellite radios?
Thanks in advance

The Boom power supply is a multi-country supply. The only issue I see is that the State side model will come with a Type B adapter plate and you will need a Type I. The good news is these plates are available from Logitech in a kit (all plates) or better yet your local Radio Shack or online. Many cellular provides have extra plates laying about from phone charges that will fit. So the power supply will not be an issue, just getting the correct Type I adapter plate.
Of course the other option is a travel adapter to go from Type B to Type I would also work but I don't like doing that with a heavy wall wart when one can get the proper adapter to swap out the US one for under a $1.50. If your buddy has a Blackberry, it probably came with the plate you will need and will snap in place.
