French amplifier.

Postby bkelly » Mon Feb 05, 2018 3:41 pm

I run an old version ATC integrated but have the opportunity to acquire a new Sugden A21 for my second system. The Sugden is from France. I'm not the most technical music lover and just wondered if there would be any potential, or actual, problems using this in U.K., with a euro to U.K. adapter plug. The spec is set for 230 v, same as UK I believe.

Should not be an issue. Looks like the Sugden has an IEC mains input on the back so I would just replace the power cable with a UK one, from my perspective this would be better than messing around with uk/Euro adaptors. You should be able to pick up an IEC power cable for a few pounds (I suspect you probably already have some at home anyway). I just did a quick search on Amazon and this is an example of what you should need - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Guilty-Gadgets-Kettle-Monitor-Printer/dp/B00B066QQK/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1517901011&sr=8-8&keywords=iec+mains+cable.

I found load of images of the back of a Sugden A21 - https://neophonics.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/a21se-back.jpg.

Hope this helps.
