If you have the US adapter, can't you use a transformer? My understanding is that replacement adapters are basically unobtanium?
With that said my adapter is called ACE 220 (not very surprising...)

I bought a cheap BX-16 a while back - there were PSUs available at the time on eBay but they were much more expensive than the mixer, so I ended up making my own. As far as I can remember I based it on the pictures in this:

The power socket on the BX-16 (possibly on the BX-8 as well?) is a weird looking thing, I used something like a IEC C5 cable and filed the plastic edges down to make it fit... the mixer now works well.
