Pioneer HLD-X0 Power Converter?

Hi hoping someone can help me out here. Just purchased a Pioneer HLD-X0 LD player from a chap in Hong Kong. Waiting for it to arrive now. I understand I need to purchase a power converter to use it in the USA. Can anyone help me by letting me know what type of converter I need and even better yet possibly have a link to one I can purchase?

thx,
Jim

Buy one that converts the AC voltage you have to 100VAC. Just do an online search or mcmelectronics, Amazon, etc.

Hong Kong is officially 220v 50hz. The OP better check carefully. It may be a 100v Japan unit or did they ever sell a 220v X0 for export?

The 50hz/60hz difference won't matter.

Every X0, X9, S9 and other Japanese player I've seen are either 100VAC or multi voltage. Every X0 has been 100VAC.

I got a one from Frys. Works great. Question. Should I always leave the power converter on or turn it off when not in use? the hld-x0 will be plugged into it.

thx

Won't affect it's life at all. It will still use a tiny bit of power (a watt or two) even with the LD player off. I would just leave it on.
