Question about Onkyo Audio Players & Recorders

5 Answers

I have an old Onkyo A-803 Amplifier and wish to move it from the United States to Germany. If I plug it in with a transformer to bring the voltage down to 110 will it work? or will the difference between the 50 Hz in Germany and the 60 Hz at which the power supply is rated be a problem?

    I would feel more comfortable if someone could comment on the power supply for the AMP. Does the Amplifier run on DC, in which case the only question is the AC/DC converter which often run just as well at 50 Hz. If not what is the main issue with the 50 Hz?

    See previous comment, i.e., to be confident in the answer I would like to better understand the issue.

You just only buy an AVR automatic voltage regulator for convinience purposes it safe .. if you use 50 Hz to 60 Hz its produce a ripple in the circuit like a vibration its very annoying to ear.

The Amplifier will really work on any place in the world for as long you have a good Auto Voltage Regulator evything will work with the hertz there no problem with it,, Its just as simple as buying a electronic device from a different country that has a different voltage for the device but you can still use it by using a Transformer or a AVR...

Hope that helps.......

    What? Am I wrong?

  • Ekse Jun 23, 2008

    Sweet rascal is wrong, 50-60hz is normal, and will work.

  • Ekse Jun 23, 2008

    you just need a adapter that supports the voltage and frequency in germany.

  • Ekse Jun 23, 2008

    if your device is rated for 110 and 60, you need a adapter which turns 240 50-60 to 110 and 60

    Onkyo amplifier power transformer voltage details


    First of all, did you test the primary and secondary leads for resistance? They all should be from 2-30 ohms max. If they are, the transformer is fine. If they are open, you will need a service manual which may be on-line. If you need more assistance or would like to inquire about repairing your unit, please visit my website at audoserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

    Change the voltage from 240v to 120v


    Hello,

    Unless there is a 240/120 switch on the back, this amplifier cannot change voltage. The only way is to replace the power transformer, and when you do that you need to use the exact model transformer Peavey uses for the 120 version. I have also seen differences in handling power outside of just a different transformer for USA/Euro models.
    The differences between these two market models might be beyond what is cost-effective to convert.

    If it is the Peavey blazer 158, they go for as cheap as 100 bucks here in the states. Or buy one new for 120.00 bucks and 4.99 shipping: http://www.dcmusicstore.com/Peavey-blazer-158-guitar-amplifier

    Best advice: sell it for what ever you can get and buy one here.

    Hope this helps!

    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??

    Is power coming out of transformer at the right voltage. Also may have a power i.c. shorting to ground.Final anp i.c. may have a place to go to ground through a shorted capacitor.

    Plugging in with multiple voltage requirements.


    no... it will put out 220volts, same as the wll socket voltage. you will need a 220v to 110v stepdown transformer to run the sub.
