Help, which preamp to buy from my shortlist?

Moving Overseas Next Week - Converting to 230V / 50 Hz from 115v / 60 Hz
This is my first experience with a SU/SDT and it ran very warm and hummed in the US.  It’s 500 watts.  I’ll get it in a couple of months, wonder if it will run warm & hum here in Israel?
