Hey Bob-O,

Yes exactly, but that can't be too hard to spec.  SWWP wants  $ 1154 
for the EZwire cetner and  $1462.00 for the step-down transformer. 
That seems so outrageous for what the EZwire center is (n't) and a 
transformer!  So I'm really game for seeing if I can come up with 
alternatives. Anyone know how to size that BR ?
