Default aleph 1.7 power xformer

anyone see a problem with using a 220-110 stepdown xformer for a aleph p 1.7 as power input. should be 60vac give or take.

i cant think of any but....could be wrong.

like this one

going to have to "diy" it to make it work.

if you're going to use it with 220 primary at 110 mains voltage - then you're good - it will give ~55Vac at secondary ;

but - be sure that you have proper transformer , not just plain autoformer

considering smallish size of it , and 500VA claim , I bet - it's plain autoformer ....... so it don't have usual galvanically isolated primary and secondary

in that case - it isn't good for your needs

why dont you just get a 160VA 2x30V trans?
they are easy to get, and not too expensive.
