    Hello everybody. I purchased a vintech audio x73i, and I have a question for experts...
    Power supply is for 120v/60Hz; but in our country is 220v... So i need to buy a transformer from 220v to 110v. My question is; if anybody knows that's the power consumption of "vintech power supply"? ... transformer must be 100 watt... 300watt ... 600watt? ...
    and by the way "Vintech Power Supply" is a pulse transformer or classic?(Electron).
    this is important when choosing a transformer 220v to 110v.
    Thanks

    p.s. sorry for the translation

    It's a real iron transformer. Vintech may be top notch when it comes to pre-amps, but the designer must have had a bad headache the day he specified a mains transformer with only a single-voltage primary winding.

    With only a single X73i in use, you could probably get away with a 200W step-down transformer.

    Bos...

    From what I read, the Vintech Power Supply is normally capable of powering up to 4 of the X73i's - I'm only mentioning this because I am curious as to how the step-down XFO might affect that, if at all; in that if at some point the OP would want to add another few X73's...
