    Hi!

    I wonder if anyone can help me with here.
    I'm planning to get the head version from MF as my local distributor is OOS till a long long time and where i stay, the power supply is rated at 220V.

    I was wondering if it is possible to modify the input transformer (??) to accept 220V instead of 110V?

    Thanks!

    The transformer would probably have to be replaced. I don't imagine it to have two sets of inputs.

    The power transformer has multiple primaries. Its just a matter of moving a couple of wires, and they have spade connectors, so it is a piece of cake.

    I just dug into mine with some mods and I think teleamp is correct, but I'll have to check the pics I took.
