    This is Viabcroce's area of expertise I think.

    From what I can gather here: http://goo.gl/umerTm

    You can use your own type of cord (that you get, which looks like a standard computer power cable plug) or buy their "cord pack" which uses one outlet that feeds both units (Kemper and Ambrosi)

    But let viabcroce have the final answer to your questions before you buy.

    Correct db, the optional mains cord is a standard computer one, except for it being Y-shaped. Ambrosi can't supply localized cords for the whole world, so the optional cord has got a German wall plug which is quite common in Europe.
    If using an adaptor doesn't look like a valuable option, it might be advisable to just not order the cord and use any cord laying around the house :)

    I, for one, went for what I already had :)

    I'm looking to pull the trigger on a third party retro fit amp for the lunchbox but am a little uneasy about overseas purchases. HOPING A US COMPANY POPS UP!

    I am also curious of the cost in US dollars for these units shipped to the US. It's almost like they don't want this info to be made public. I can't find prices anywhere.

    I was told the prices are floating due to the exchange rate. Was told PayPal would calculate the rate automatically. And was told in the case of Ambrosi it's a first come first served as they are built per order. Not very comforting. We need a US supplier.

    Lution, Ambrosi Amps is an artisan, and the units are built in batches and parts purchased according to needs. Sometime a supplier doesn't sell a certain power board any longer, and you need to find an alternative vendor. Parts prices can be very different at times. That's why I prefer to always give the last price, or I'd be obliged to rewrite the list every 10 units.
    Feel free to contact ambrosiamps at gmail dot com for any information. Also, here's Ambrosi Amps FB page with some technical and logistic infos.

    I'd be interested to know the current "range". Are they between $500-$1200?
