Hi, I have a Yamaha RX 387 which I've brought back from the USA to the UK and would like to convert it to work on 220v.Is there a simple way to rewire the transformer to allow this?Leon
Model: RX 387
Hello, I'm Nathan and I will be assisting you today. Please remember to rate/accept my answer when we have finished. Thank you.
Leon, if you look at the back of the receiver, right under or to the side of the power cord connection, you should see a small, recessed slider switch, that should let you select 110 or 220 input, no rewiring should be required.
There's a switch for setting the speaker impedance, but nothing for the voltage.
this may be the result of my typo...the model is 387....appolgies.
and again.......the model is correctly 397
Sorry, you posted 2 different things here, once more please, 387 or 397?
Sorry for the mix up. The last one was the correct number (397)
if it does not have a 220 volt transfomer, it will not be easy. changing the transfomer is more expensive with labor than buying a receiver that will work.
