hi all,am considering buying a turntable from the united states,would it be safe to use with a voltage convertor?
Should be, though you may get some hum. Nothing for sale in the UK which takes your fancy?
its the musical hall ikura,have'nt been able to find anywhere here that has it
Ah right. The only Music Hall turntables I know of were all re-badged Pro-Ject Debuts, but I agree this one doesn't seem to be. If you read the manual it does state that the power supply is either 115V/60Hz (ie US mains) or 230V/50Hz (ie our mains). Maybe it's switchable. Why not email them and ask.
have sent them an email,will let you know the reply,thanks for the advice
There's a list of distributors in Europe. You would only need a plug adapter to use the ikura in the UK.
Yamaha R-S500, Infinity Overture 1, Cambridge Audio DACMagic, Sony KDL 40HX750, Humax iHDR 5200c, Sony BDP-S590, Pro-Ject 1Xpression III Comfort, Sony MDS-JE 520, Apple Airport Express, Apple Mac Mini (2013), Atacama Eris Eco 5.0
I just saw one yesterday at my local hi-fi shop. It looks cool in person. It comes in white and black and the one I saw was in white. Comes with an Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge. Don't think you can go wrong for the price unless you have a lot of duties and taxes to pay for importing it.
