Sony STR-DE705 question

I have a sony STR-DE705 receiver purchased in USA. I am moving to another country where the voltage is 240 volts/60Hz power supply. My question is: Is it possible to use a step down voltage converter and use this receiver while I am temporarily there? Thanks for your response. Regards,

    There was one incorrect information, the voltage/frequency in destination country is 240V/50Hz - Here we have 120V/60Hz. I was informed that the receiver uses Power transistors. Will the step down converter solution work with frequency difference?

    Thanks.

Yes you can use a step down converter,but remember to use a higher rating converter.if your receiver need 100w ( or 1A )then you need a converter at least give 150w ( or 2A ).

    Yes, step down converter can work for 50hz or 60hz.no problem at all.The pwr transistors inside the receiver is working in DC ( direct current) not AC. so 50hz or 60 hz is doesn't matter.

Can I and how do I hook a subwoofer to my Sony str-de705 receiver


It depends. You can connect an active (self-powered) sub-woofer to the STR-DE705. You can't connect a passive sub-woofer that needs power from the receiver. If the sub-woofer has its own power cord, then it's an active unit. See https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37001 for more information. You'll also need a RCA subwoofer cable. This is like a RCA audio cable but only has one plug on each end. (Using a regular audio cable may risk a short when the extra plugs hit something.) Many subwoofers will come with the audio cable. If you do need one, they are available at most places that sell cables, including Amazon.com .

Here is an example of an active subwoofer: https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37001 . This is the Yamaha YST-SW012.

I hope this helps.

I used to live in the USA where I bought a Sony KDL-46W5100 TV and was clearly told by Sony it would be fone to connect to SKY in the UK as long as I used thew HDMI input/output. However, it doesnt work!...


The TV should run on the 50hz. You will need the proper power cord as the prongs are different. The power supply should switch automatically but I would confirm this with Sony. I can't see anything in my information that says otherwise.

The North American power is 60hz and 110 volts while the Euro is 50hz and 240 volts. So you don;t want to force it too much or you could make expensive smoke ;-] With the proper cord you should just have to plug it in. If the video is fine with HDMI then you should be up and running.

I just bought KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer KSM150PS with 110v and 60Hz online and received it today and realised I cannot use it on australia. Can I use transformer which I can get here to convert 110V...


You need a Step Down Voltage Converter (also called a Voltage Transformer)
which steps down 240, 230, 220 volts to 110 volts and
allows you to use 110 volts Devices from USA in 220 v / 230 v / 240 v Countries

Soon as i turn power on my sony receiver goes straight to protection mode can i disconect the fuse to reset it


Resetting probably won't fix it, Sounds like it needs output transistors and some resistors and/or fuses

How can i use Sony 5.1 Receiver STR-DG520 in India (120V to 230V)


Sorry, but according to Sony this set operates only on 120 volts at 60 hertz. As we have no real need for up converters here in the USA, I cannot recommend one for your application. The best course would be for you to visit one of your local electronics stores and provide them with the specific current requirements. I'm certain that an appropriate converter is available in your area.

Hello. my sony receiver is flashing protector mode and no sound is coming out. how do I fix this? thanks, Suzanne


More than likly the built in amplifier is dead and its time to lay it to rest. Before you do that, make sure all your positive and negitives are correct and that none of the wires are touching one another.
