Where great old Macs live again!

Pretty sure the corrosion on the TAM power supply didn't come standard.

Yes my TAM arrived all the way from Japan. Alas, when I plugged it in I heard a muffled pop from somewhere inside the subwoofer/power supply. I didn't smell the magic smoke though, and when I got the subwoofer taken apart (Thank you https://www.cardboard-box.com/fixtambuzz/index.html !!) Spiderwebs, some dead bugs (Imported dead bugs, fancy!) and corroded metal are what greeted me. The one and only fuze still reads good and I don't see any obvious burnt components. So I'll clean up some of the corrosion and try again.

This is near the plug connector.

And the volume knob for the subwoofer.

Yikes! That is no fun. I just heard about your woes listening to the podcast this morning. I didn't see any power supplies on ebay either.

Are you going to try and reverse engineer the umbilical cord connection and see if another PSU can be used in its place (temporarily)?

My electronics acumen is mostly limited to not electrocuting myself (usually) so unless someone has step by step instructions on how to modify a power supply from a 6400, I'm out of luck. I do have a friend who does electronics that I may bribe with pizza to look at the existing power supply.
