Do the Elite/Premium ship with power cable for US power plug or is an adapter needed?

Unless they have changed, they supply a European style cord plug with a 120V/US adapter plug. I had trouble losing power (Elite) at the adapter, and at 120V, I didn't want an electrical fire. I replaced this with a standard 2 pin cordset. I had one lying around, but I am pretty sure you can order one online or get one at RadioShack.

Mine came only with the weird European power cord, but I had about 3 or 4 cords from other old receivers and other equipment. It's a pretty common plug at the receiver. If all else fails, just cut the European plug off, and go to a hardware store and wire in a regular plug. Would only take a couple minutes. If I remember right, I don't think the power cord was polarized. (Which makes me wonder about how well grounded the receiver can be)

For some reason they are on the wall behind the register (at least at my local store they were) but they do carry them :)
