The one with the unit is DC output and I don’t know if I should try to plug in

You need an AC to 12vAC transformer. Here in the US, I purchased a cheap 120vAC to 12vAC, 1500mA transformer like this: http://www.radioshack.com/enercell-12v-1500ma-ac-adapter/2730358.html#start=3” class=”bbcode_url”>http://www.radioshack.com/enercell-12v-1500ma-ac-adapter/2730358.html#start=3

As you know, your picture shows a 230vAC to DC output. Proclaiming my ignorance of overseas voltages, you should locate a “wallwart” that is ???vAC to 12vAC, more than 300mA/.3A

Here is a link to information, from Ted Fletcher, on transformers:

I hope this helps and that you have a Happy New Year with your 3Q. :)
