8000 series power supply

I'm a long time Genelc user and recently bought a new pair of 8040a's in USA after having worked there
for some time, which I now have brought with me back home to the UK.

What's the reason behind why the 8000 series, and newer Genelec models in general,
are no longer equipped with a simple voltage switch like most other monitors on the market?

And if it's to regulate import-export, market-flow etc, then why do Genelec recommend to use
external 'step-up' or 'step-down' transformers in order to supply the correct original voltage to the monitor
..a bit like setting the alarm with all windows open..

Any response is much appreciated
