    Transporter voltage

    I'm in the UK and am considering buying a s/h Transporter from the USA. Does that mean that I will need to use a stepdown transformer to reduce the UK 240v supply?

    Spec says 100-240V 50/60Hz so should be OK.

    Edit. I took so long trying to find the manual I was beaten to it.

    Thanks

    Thank you to both responders. I love this place; although this is only my second post, I have lurked for years!

    Does this range of voltages apply to any other Squeezebox gear? I have a US-sourced Sqeezebox V3, which was replaced with a UK Touch, which I'm still looking for after we moved house

    Both the SB3 and Touch use inline transformers albeit slightly different to each other.
    If you Google you’ll find low grade replacements easily enough on eBay etc
