Hello,

I have just picked up a pretty nice condition space echo,

From the states and I am in the UK.
I believe that it's 110 volts (it;s got a US plug on it)

I am running my studio at 220 volts.
Does anyone know if it's easily converted?

I'd imagine so however there's no voltage switch on the back that I can see.


The back says Ac 117 v,

50/60 hz 18W


`if anyone has any suggestions they could give i would be very grateful (other than buy a transformer - I'd rather have my gear modded so it runs on uk power)

Many thanks!

If you want it to run 'natively' on UK power, you will have to replace the internal transformer. An external step-down transformer is a better option.

Thanks for the reply kent.

I found this on Amzon:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Skytronic-Step-Down-Voltage-Convertor/dp/B000H 9HU5C/ref=pd_sim_ce_4

That should be more than ample as it's 117 v,

50/60 hz 18W

Or am i getting that totally wrong?

Thanks

I just took a look at the service notes, and as far as I can tell, they used different transformers for each version, so it can't be easily converted.

Thanks for the replies.
I believe that the amazon transformer that i found should work ok.

it's 40wats and the space echo draws 18 so that's more than ample as I understand it...
