    hello forum
    recently purchased a USA electronic item, and prev owner stated he used a step up transformer to use the kit over here on 230v (from 110v)
    after tweeting Roland US the manufacturers they replied with the following tweet
    MV-8000 has an auto switching regulator. All you need is the correct config on the IEC cable, or regular plug converter.
    ..which brings me here, am i to take it i can use a standard IEC and use the kit in UK without transformer or voltage conversion?
    many thanks in adv
    JJ

    If you download the specs and read them you will see the power ratings near the end.
    Also read the warning in the beginning.(mv8000_r_e4.pdf )

    Power Supply
    AC 115 V, 117 V, 220 V, 230 V, 240 V (50/60 Hz) ....
    .....................(therfore no step up/down required)

    I believe that is correct, based on this specification from the Roland MV-8000 Owner Manual:

    AC 115 V, 117 V, 220 V, 230 V, 240 V (50/60 Hz)

    Ah...don't give it a second thought......:)

    Manuals and instructions are last resort.....:D

    I'm guilty of the same thing at times.....
