I ordered European power cords for three devices (Connect:AMP, Play:3, and Play:5) that I bought in New York. All three cords came today, and in separate bags...but without any indication on them as to which specific component each one is to be hooked up. I do know that they are NOT interchangeable.

Does anyone know where I can find out which cord goes with which device? Mahalo.

If they're not interchangeable then it ought to be pretty obvious which goes with which device.

CONNECT:AMP: standard figure-8 connector
PLAY:3: figure-8 connector with a thickened shoulder that seats flush with the back surface
PLAY:5 Gen1: standard figure-8 connector
PLAY:5 Gen2: figure-8 connector with a rounded body that seats flush with the back surface

Don't forget to set the voltage selector on the CONNECT:AMP correctly, else you'll fry it.

Thanks. AFter writing my question, I actually figured out that the ends were different, so I was able to simply match them up with the US cord ends. 🙂
