Hi, I'm JA Engineer. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply ASAP.

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question

I did some research and unfortunately, the SC-HC39 will not work in the UK. This is because the SC-HC39 is rated to work at 120V, 60Hz while the power supply in the UK is rated at 230V, 50Hz. In addition, the type of plug used on the SC-HC39 is A/B whilst the UK uses G type plugs, so it would not be able to plug into sockets in the UK. If you even got an A/B to G type plug converter, if you plugged the audio system into a UK socket, it would burn up. So, the SC-HC39 will not work in the UK.
