Thanks
The PSUs are supplied with North American leads and power plugs -- however, the leads are detachable with some kind of 'universal' plug on the PSU itself. The type of cord on the back of a CD player and similar. I will get some photos and post them.

Default Power supplies for ACA

Jim (6L6).....are these the "universal input" switching type of laptop supplies--i.e., do they accept both 120vac and 230-240vac mains inputs, at either 60 and 50 hertz mains?

If they are, a European DIY'er may be able to find an adapter that takes the "US" power plug and converts it to the European standard. Other option, (and neater) is as you suggest--cut off the US plug, and replace with a European one (if these PSUs are, in fact, "universal" laptop switching power supplies.

Yes, the PSU are universal input laptop bricks. The cord could be easily cut and the proper 2-prong plug spliced on, or a proper cord found.

Very similar to this -

Actually your guide is wonderful, I know the Amp is great but I wonder what difficulties I may face here in Europe. The 2 prongs plug is easy to solve but 50Hz is not, am I wrong ?

50Hz is no problem. Input voltage range is 100-240V 50/60Hz

EDIT - Photos of PSU:

Although not technically a 'preamp', build this - Building the O2 Headphone Amp

It's the best Headphone Amp / Preamp, can drive anything, is completely silent, and is just a truly amazing project. On top of that it's utterly fantastic value for the money.

Wholeheartedly recommended to anybody who needs any of the following -

Attenuation
Gain
The ability to drive anything
Headphone amp
Impedance matching
A new, fun, useful project.

I absolutely love the "warnings" listed on the PSU (see Post 17, first photo).

Nice warning, that the PSU will not cause harmful interference, I guess.

The second warning, I can't even begin to decipher......!
