Thanks! I just started delving into the wiki and appreciated the links.
In looking at the specs, I don't see voltage details. Since I am
considering taking it to Europe, I need to know if it is 110/220v
50/60Hz.... I suspect it is and is only lacking the country power
adapter. Does it have a transformer from 110/220v to 12v? use 50 or 60
