Default BeoGram CDX 240V convert to 120V

Hello all,

I am looking for information about the Bang & Olufsen BeoGram CDX, specifically if the UK model (designed for 240 line voltage) can be re-wired for 120V.

Thanks in advance.

ps. also looking for a CDX for sale.

Jake

Probably. I do have the CD-x manual, but it is not clear in this. You better check the philips CD104 manual.
I think it is the same and there this is explained in figure 9.

you now have:
mains to fuse to 1 - 2 to 3 - 5 to mains.

For 127V, you need:
mains to fuse to 1 and 3 - 2 to 4 - 5 to mains.

And change the fuse to 400mA slow.

So if you need the extra cd-x for components, you might try to get a 104. Much cheaper

Awesome Guido.

For my education, is the philips CD104 the same as the B&O, just packaged differently? B&O used to (maybe still does) contracts out their package design.

Seems to me I have seen the 104 on other sites.

Thanks
Jake

it's not the same, but many components are used in the cd-x. Some smaller stuff is different, mainly the control parts (buttons and surrounding electronics etc). But main pcb and transport are similar iirc.

It's actually made in Belgium (mine is), which means it's made in a philips factory (turnhout or hasselt i guess).
