changing from 220v to 120v


There are a pair of Bryston monoblocks I am interested in that are 220v. The dealer says he can change them to 120v before shipping. I know next to nothing about electricity. Is the conversion easy to do correctly and well? Or migth there be non-trivial issues involved?

thanks for your thoughts.

Depending on the gear, yes. With linear power supplies we often see transformers that are manufactured as dual voltage units. These transformers use two primary coils, and depending on whether the primaries are connected in series or in parallel to each other they work with 220 or 110.

It’s a common cost-saving technique.

Best,

Thanks for the response.  Do you know whether Bryston builds their amps for easy conversion?
Shouldn't be a problem. Cheers,

If the dealer is doing it, without sending it back to Bryston, then it’s easy.
"Could" even be an internal switch, or soldered bridging pads

I know nothing about the internals of Bryston, but it's often just spades on a terminal block.  Takes a phillips head screwdriver and voila. :)
