Help me puzzle out a Mystery Circuit!

Later this year, for an electronics course I´m taking, we´ll be given a ¨black box¨ circuit containing various passive elements - resistors, capacitors, and inductors - and asked to design a pre-emphasis circuit that will negate its effect. I´d like to draw up a plan of attack, so: does anyone have any suggestions for experiments to run on the black box to determine the circuit within´s construction? I´ve got access to a function generator and an oscilloscope, of course.

Help salvage a poor innocent Moog!

My friend's just bought a nice new Moog Etherwave! Unfortunately, he plugged it in to the mains with just a plug converter, and since we're in Australia (240V) instead of the US, where the Moog came from (120V or something) - boom. Can we fix this? Would he have just have fried the power supply rather than the Moog itself? If so, can we just cut the cable, buy a new power supply (and transformer), and splice it on? Would that be a horrible nightmare?
