Hey guys,
Can someone please confirm that the 8240a and 8250a feature auto switching voltage between 110v and 240volts?
I ask as I'm looking at buying a set in the USA and want to use them in a 240v country.

Hello,

No, the 8240A or the 8250A do not feature auto or manual switching between 110V and 240V. You must not plug your 110V units to the 240V wall plug! If you want to use them that way, you must buy a step-down transformer.

8240A - At least 250VA transformer for a stereo pair
8250A - At least 400VA transformer for a stereo pair

Thanks Ilkka,
What step-down VA would I need for 7260A and 7270A subwoofers?

Would these transformers usually introduce any kind of 'hum' via the power supply?
What are your thoughts on using 'step-down' transformers at this high quality level of product?

Regards,
Steve
