Where to buy 5V power supply in Canada?

Sun Aug 22, 2010 7:29 am

My Soundbridge 1001 just died, and the problem seems to be the power supply. I have a drawerful of AC adaptors, but even my adjustable one doesn't have a 5V setting, and the extra 5V one I do have (for a USB hub) don't work in the Soundbridge (perhaps too low current).

Anybody know where I can find a replacement for sale in Canada, preferably in the Ottawa area? We used to have an electronics surplus store, but that's gone ...

You can check this link:

Note that you will also need an AC cord, which is a bit lower on the page for $3.99. Note that shipping is $20 FedEx.

Thank you! It's a bit pricey, but will work if I can't find anything else. Appreciate it!

Why not just buy the 9.99 one from Roku? I just did this to revive my soundbridge. I almost died when it came back to life. It cost 29.98 including shipping to Winnipeg and it got here in about 4 days. Or is that more than you're looking to pay? I was in the same boat as you...i went to local electronics stores around here and even a couple of value village type stores that have bins of old power adaptors...I couldn't find anything and then figured I'd just pay the 30 bucks.

I tried one of the adjustable ones from radio shack and it didn't have enough amps to get it going even though the volts were correct.

anyway, good luck.

I ordered a power adapter cable to replace the failed one on my Soundbridge M1001 from Payless (through Google). It took about a week to come to Mont-Saint-Hilaire, QC from California and cost about $35, including shipping. But it is rated at 2A compared to the Roku one which is 1.5A, works fine, and hopefully this will be the last power adapter failure on this unit.

I purchased mine by mail order from A1Parts in Toronto http://www.a1parts.ca/. $10 for the adaptor and $10 to ship it.

Was it rated at 1500mA (1.5amp) or 2000mA (2amp)?
Also, please reply back when you receive it and let us know if it worked and give a link with a part number too.
Thanks, Matt
