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!!!

Change from 110 to 220 volts transformer


It sounds like the replacement 220 volt transformer is putting out too much power, as replacing a 110 volt transformer with a 220 volt one should have no effect on other components, as the output voltage and amperage should be the same as the original one.

We have just installed a Bose lifestyle system, with SA 2 and SA 3 amplifyer, with a second set of speakers in another room. we cannot get sound to the second room. the second remote is not responding....


Make sure you unplug your sa 2 and sa3 amplifiers after setting the codes. Wait at least 60 seconds, then plug back in. I would also unplug the in and out boselink cables as well. Once youve waited for a minute, then plug everything back in. Should work. If not, call Bose technical support. They are really great. I have 15 SA 3 amplifiers throughout my home. They are great.

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??
