Subject description: HOW much for a PSU???
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

The PSU in my Waldorf Blofeld Keyboard crapped out on me earlier this week.

So I sent them an e-mail describing the fault and receive a reply from the Service Dept, saying, “Ach ja - ze pauer supply iz definitely kaputt, but don't vorry - ve can sell you ze new vun for 35 Euro plus ze shipping”.

Meanwhile, I've found a YouTube video of a guy dismantling a Blofeld Keyboard, in which the PSU is revealed to be a standard, Chinese mini-brick.

So I do a search for the product code (SYS1319-3012-T2) and find a company in the UK that sells them.

I have now ordered one... for 17.23 GBP including shipping (and VAT).

That's 19.23 Euro at today's exchange rate. Not 35.
