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

I moved back to Europe, and having a brand new SA3, I wonder what to do ?
=> the SA3 delivered in USA is compatible with 220 Volts/50Hz supply ; just the connector/plug to change ?!
or
=> I need to contact Bose to upgrade my SA3
or
=> I may use a voltage transformer without risk for sound quality or continuous use (thermal risk of the transformer) ?

Thanks for assistance.

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!!!

Sa3 bose not sound from boselink but external input yes


It depends on the Bose system you connected with the amp and the type of Bose remote you are using?Does the indicator LED at the rear of the amplifier stay solid green when you press the ON button on the remote?If not,check that your room code setting on the remote correspond with the micro switches setting at the rear of your amplifier.

Bose sa3 amp, blew a fuse in it, replaced it and now it won't power up. Nice little amp, would like to find out how to test out what is wrong and fix it


If you can,check with your multimeter to see if the two voltage rectifiers are good.If they are OK,you may need to replace the 2 audio amplifiers.This will require proper tools and good experience.

SA3 amplifier to move to Europe : capability of the transformer ?


While living in the States I purchased a Bose Acoustimass 10 system but have now moved back to the UAE. As the system operates on 115 volts ONLY I would like to get it work on 240V without having to use a step-down transformer. By changing out the transformer form 115v to 240v will it work or will I have to change any other components within the system. Can anyone help me??

Converter needed


If your unit is from the USA, 120 volt/ 300 watts.
EU is 220-240V / 300 Watts. Best choice is to go to Bose service center in EU and have your transformer inside your box replaced with 220-240V for EU operation. That way you don't have to worry about a converter. If not, 2nd choice is buy a step-down transformer 220-240V input and 120 Volt output that can handle 300Watts.

Good Luck.
