      A happy new year to you all!

      Ive been looking at a pair of Beolab 3s and the majority I see are EU/UK, i.e, 230V. Would it be a major headache to switch the voltage in them?
      I read there is a ‘jumper’ to 100~V. These are sold by a professional dealer, would it be unreasonable to ask if they could do it?

      thx

        It’s covered in the Service Manual as follows, so if the dealer won’t do it simply find an electronic repairer who will:

          Thanks Guy, I’ll ask the dealer. Here in Japan simply “finding an electronic repairer” is easier said than done and with B&O products even more so. The dealer where I just got my theatre from may have a contact but I wouldn’t hold my breath. I would have to ask is it worth it for the 3s or wait for some to show up in the right colour here or US.

            Thankfully the dealer can switch the voltage no problem. Not sure I can give them a shout out but a UK dealer who loaned Steve the red pair of Beolab 3s. These will work great as rears with the Theatre and also go nicely with the Beogram.
