Hi, I have a decent pair of Penta 2s - amongst a bunch of other classic B&O!

They were bought when I lived in the USA, and are of course 120V. Is it possible to convert them to 220V as I now live in NZ? I've done that successfully for a couple of products, where it's just a question of removing jumpers and resoldering in the correct positions. Now maybe my google-fu is weak, but I haven't found anything on the topic of performing such a voltage conversion on Pentas anywhere.

Anyone help? Thanks!

(And gentle with the new guy please :-) - well not actually new, I've been on here a little before, but so long ago I can't remember a trace of what my username was!)

Rewiring the transformer and another fuses are used.

I've done it some time ago with a pair from the States coming to Europe.

OK, that's good to know - but is there any information on how to do the conversion? What exactly needs to be rewired? 

Thanks!
