Dual voltage audiophile turntable recommendations.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for dual voltage (110v and 220v), audiophile turntable. Looking for something in < 700$ range.
Any recommendations?

TIA.

The power usage of turntables is so tiny that a 120/240 power transformer of minimum size would be very effective.

Do not forget frequency difference. You need either direct drive table with quartz locked motor or speed controller for synchronous motor. In the latter case you will likely exceed your budget, as this is considered a high-end featre.

Good point. There are a number of ways to make a turntable not care what the power line frequency is, or have dual speeds, some electrical, some mechanical.

USA = 60 Hz, much of the rest of the world = 50 Hz. The 60 Hz in the USA is pretty stable, but the power line frequency in much of the world, not so much.
