Its datasheet shows brown to live, blue to neutral (primary side colours to the mains plug).
Mains earth third wire from the plug just tie it to the chassis with screw and nut for safety.

Secondary side colours to the electronics:
Black and yellow put them together to the middle input of the board's AC connector.
Put red to one of its corner inputs, orange to its other corner input. No matter which.

Apologies if this is answered elsewhere but I have not been able to see it.
I have the black Hypno boards. I am intending to use foil caps for the .22uF caps and the ones I am using have an indication for open foil end. Would it be better to connect this end to the + or the -, or does this not matter?

If it matters in this case, the lower impedance point in the positive section is the (-) and in the negative is the (+) to orient the outer foil ends of those Vref bypass capacitors.

With bigger sized capacitors mainly, the outer foil becomes less susceptible to external interference when connected to the lower impedance side of the circuit.

Thanks for the quick response Salas. Understand that now and you answered it in the way I should have asked it ie. Which is the lowest impedance point on each side.
