No, a wall plug power supply is not part of the kit, because of the different standards for power sockets in several european countries. But you can use any wall plug supply with 9 .. 12V AC or DC ouput voltage and standard power plug.

About the status of the kits:

I will get the first 100 PCB's in the end of June. I will need then 1 week to prepare the kits. So I will start the delivery in July.

Hi Harty,
No, I will not sell SNES controllers in the first step...
You can get 3rd party SNES conytrollers in small lots on Alibaba.com. Many manufacturers offers some for rock bottom prices.

Can't agree more Paul! And those SCART connectors are sure bulky but they somehow impose respect... :lol: Plus they save the AD725; on my BOM that's a non-negligible 20%!

@Harty, any plans to sell just the PCB on its own?
