Luxman LV-111 voltage selector

I have a Luxman integrated power amplifier, that came from Europe! It has a europeon plug on it, and I want to run it in the USA! I have noticed a voltage selector panel on the bottom of the unit! Can I adjust this to make the amp compatable for US Current?

Check on the speaker connections. Make sure theyre firm at both ends. Do you have another set of speakers you can try on it? If so,try that too.
The chatter is the speaker protection relay.

Let me know...Thanks

Will a Packard bell i media desktop run on united states power ?or is it strictly designed to run on European power ?

Here in the US, and with more than 20 years experience as a computer tech I would venture to answer that almost any computer should work almost anywhere in the world.
You only need to look at the input voltage and make certain the power supply is set to match the line voltage supplied where you are. Standard electricity in Europe is 115v or 220v @ 50hz and in the US it is 115v (almost universally) or 220v (rarely) @ 60hz. The biggest difference is the ac frequency used but for computer power supplies that is immaterial.
A computer power supply converts the ac input power to regulated and filtered 3.3v, 5v, and 12v dc so the ac frequency does not have any affect on the filtered dc output that actually operates the computer. Almost all power supplies have a voltage selector switch near the power cord plug on the back of the computer to choose 115v or 220v. Newer power supplies are designed to be auto selecting on input voltage so even that manual selection is no longer required.

You likely will need a different power cord since the shape of the prongs on power outlets in Europe is always different than here in the US. If I remember correctly from my time in Europe that even varies by country there.

As long as you keep in mind the possible different voltages and the different prong shape and arrangements for the ac power source your packard bell computer should work well here in the US.

Absolute worst case scenario would be that if the power supply already installed in your PC is extremely low quality and was designed to use only one input voltage then it is possible you may need to replace the power supply with one that is designed to be used anywhere.

K&K AT-306 RECEIVER AC220V/50HZ THE POWER CORD IS A two prong Converter For 110V Voltage WHAT KIND OF Adapter DO I USED

It depends which supply you are plugging the unit into. If it's 220-250 mains supply in your home, you can just cut off the old plug and stick a European plug on it. Since the unit is designed to run on that. If it has a voltage selector on the receiver make certain it set to the 220 one.

US amplifier in UK

If it has a voltage selector switch it to 208V or whatever is closest. OR, buy a transformer that converts the local power to 110V.

Best way to use US-Bose SA3 amp in Europe ?

Bose say you should pay to get it converted because over time the slightly different power cycles can effect it, however it will still works fine if you change the voltage with an adapter - like I did!!!

Hi: If the Amp has an audio output transformer, check for bad solder connections to the pc board, This are the wires from the transformer to the PC board. Another place to look is the earphone connection plug. If the jack has a bent contact inside of it, you will have all sound cut off. Good Luck.
