Default Modding a CDP and Pre to accept 220V ?

Hello fellow members,

i brought a CD Player and a Pre AMP with me from america. I currently use 2 big voltage converters per unit. But they draw 500Watt from the power outlet and are making me poorer than i already am. The Krell was very easy to switch from 110V to 220V since he has switches for it. But what can i do about the CDP and Pre amp. Can it be done by my self or is it nesecarry to replace parts inside the unit?

Thanks for any help

it is quit simple, replace the voltage converters for 220V to 110V transformers.
To select the VA of the transformer check the power reading at the back of each unit.

You can find suitable transformers at:
