WE HAVE A NUMBER OF "FACTORY SECONDS" OF THE ORIGINAL MEWSIC BOX POWER PCB. THE SCRATCH AND DENT SALE-PRICED VERSION HAS A FEW FLAWS. WE'VE DISCOUNTED THESE HEAVILY BECAUSE OF THIS AND WHEN THEY'RE SOLD OUT, THAT'S IT. THE ACTUAL PCB IS SHOWN IN THE FIRST THREE PHOTOS.
 
FLAWS:

1) DUE TO A MANUFACTURING ERROR, 3 OF THE 11 HEADER PADS FOR CABLE INPUTS ON THE POWER PC BOARD DON'T WORK CORRECTLY AND THEREFORE SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY HEADERS SOLDERED IN. THEY ARE CROSSED OUT IN BLACK (SEE LAST PHOTO) SO THAT THERE WILL BE NO CONFUSION HERE. THEREFORE, THERE ARE ONLY 8 AVAILABLE SLOTS TO PLUG IN MODULES. IF YOU NEED MORE, YOU'LL HAVE TO USE A FLYING BUS CABLE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

3) THE WAY THAT THE CAPACITORS ARE SITUATED ON THE POWER PCB, IN ORDER FOR THEM TO LIE FLAT, MAXIMIZING OVERHEAD SPACE, THEY HANG OVER THE EDGE OF THE PCB (SEE LAST PHOTO). WHEN SOLDERED IN THEY ARE STILL STABLE AND SOLID. THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE BENT OVER, THEY CAN STAND UPRIGHT JUST FINE AND MOST MODULES WILL FIT OVERHEAD FINE. ALSO, YOU MIGHT HAVE TO MOVE THE CAPACITORS A BIT IN ORDER TO MOUNT THEM, DEPENDING ON THE MOUNTING METHOD CHOSEN.

INCLUDED IN THIS PURCHASE:

POWER PCB, FILTER CAPACITORS, DC POWER BARREL, 8 X SHROUDED HEADERS, MOUNTING HARDWARE.

YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE THE CORRECT POWER SUPPLY.
 
MAKE SURE TO USE A 12V AC TO AC ADAPTER, NOT AN AC TO DC ADAPTER.
We recommend the following U.S. AC to AC adapters:
