I recently ran into a Super C8+ on craigslist. I'm interested, but they don't have the power cord, so I can't test it out. I was wondering if any of you knew what it uses (i'm new to this and wouldn't even know where to start). Is it something I would be able to get at radio shack or would I have to special order it? Sorry if i posted this in the wrong area!

If this is the oval 3 pin cord, it is not available at radio shack. It is often referred to as an HP cord. They are often available up on E-bay, but expect to pay $25+ for one. They were common in the 70's/early 80's and used on some computer equipment, but they were replaced by the now standard 3 pin computer plug. They are now harder to find. If you have an electronic surplus store around, check with them.
