Does anybody know of a programmable doorbell that can play a person's choice of MP3 or RingTones, and that can be plugged into 120 Volt electrical power?  The tones should be upload able by wife.

My Brother-in-law's new apartment came with a doorbell that only plays "Mary Had A Little Lamb" and naturally he'd like to do better.

Thanks.

Well, dbrunton gave you a good one that has these features:

    Direct connect to iPod, PC, MP3, or CD player
    Record live audio - up to 6 recordings
    Includes dozens of built-in sounds
    Easy 2 wire replacement of existing chimes

$87.00 and free shipping.

Same thing on Ebay is $89 to $110.

---------------------
Sears has a lower cost wireless one with 36 chimes and a range of 490 feet.

These are battery operated, not wired to power. The features are great, though, and the recommendations appreciated.
