Default Sony SCD-1 / 120V -> 220V


I didn't find any information in this case: I could buy this player in the USA (120V) but want to use it in Germany (220V). Is the voltage switchable or what...?

Thanks a lot!

The power rating is not switchable on these models.

The best you can do is to use a power converter - Input: 220-240VAC (European style plug). Output: 100-120VAC (US style plug).

The transformers for the SCD-1/SCD-777 are no longer available from Sony Europe.

The SCD-1 owner manual say the USA model are 120V and the Euro model are 230V.
Just my two cents.

Consider that the us-version runs on 60 Hz, the europe version demands 50 Hz.
I would consider any up-stepping or downstepping of the voltage as a step back in audio performance.
