Chances are a CD player, tuner, and the like (small units) will work - look at the rated consumption, it should be inside the transformer's rated power, preferably below. An amp, however, will not. Some components can be converted relatively easily - if they have jumpers/switches for that purpose somewhere at the AC input. In this case, you may even be able to do it yourself. Others, however, need either a total replacement of the transformer (if you can find someone to do it) or a serious step-down transformer like the one here. I have not used one myself, so I don't know how they work with hi-fi gear - if you get one, let us know.
