Hi guys, would love a solution to my problem.
I have purchased a Space from the US as it's much cheaper there, but I live in Australia. I own a PP2+ and need outputs 5/6 for other pedals so I can't use them with a Y cable to run the Space.
What I would love to do it power it from the PP2+ courtesy outlet. Now, the problem is that on the international PP2+ the courtesy outlet is a reverse IEC connection AC. Is it possible to some how power the Space via this IEC courtesy outlet? It would be hugely appreciated if you were able to help me out here!
One more short question before I go. This is unrelated to the first question. I bought the Space from the US I will get a US power supply, is a US > Australian power plug adapter suffice to connect it to the wall or would I need a completely new AUS power supply if I wanted to plug it into the wall?
P.S. I am aware of the power factor power supply but unfortunately I cannot afford another power supply right now, so I need to try and make do with what I have got.

You'll have to either get a voltage converter, or get a Australian rated PSU. I have heard that *** Smith makes one that works. Im actually looking for a replacement one for my Modfactor as I either lost it at a gig(unlikely) or someone nicked it as I was packing up. I havent found anything on the net as to their availibility though.

Thanks for your reply Patric. So I will definitely need an Australian power supply regardless. That's ok, I'm sure I can find one at *** Smith or Jaycar.
I still need to figure out whether it is possible to power it from the reverse IEC connection of the PP2+.

this is the sort of thing I was thinking of following our discussion over at TGP..
you could use something like this to plug into the courtesy socket on the PP2+ if you can find a PSU that accepts the fig8 (C7) connector.
would probably be better if it had a cable between the two connectors rather than a rigid all-in-one connector.

Thanks again Martin, I'll have a look into it.

I can confirm that this works, adds no noise and is cheap for Australian customers, as Eventide wants to charge about 30 bucks for shipping a PSU that costs 19 bucks and weighs next to nothing. I find that a little disconcerting and uneeded

Our power supply weighs 1 lb 1 oz before packing. The reason for the high shipping charge is that our company policy requires full trackability, so we use Fedex International. Since Australia is on the other side of the world, this is .. expensive. Sorry.
You could try harassing our new Australian dealer, Audio Chocolate in S.Yarra, Victoria. Maybe if enough people want power supplies they'd get some in.

Ok Fair enough, I spoke too soon. Sorry for that, my apologies
