Genelec 6010b power issue

Hi all,

So I have an old pair of 6010bs (I also own a newer pair of 8010)...

I stupidly didn't realise that the 6010 model doesn't have a dual voltage power supply - they only operate at 110v (I bought them in the USA). Literally everything else I own switches automatically, so I was caught off-guard...

I plugged them in to a 220v circuit, and the usual low level snap/pop was a fair bit louder, and then... nothing! Ok, so I've blown something in there.

Does anyone knows if it's a fuse I've blown (cheap and easy fix), or a transformer (these appear to cost about 200usd a piece online)?

I'll send them in to Genelec if there's doubt, but if it's definitely a blown transformer then I'd rather just sell them as "for parts / not working" online and cut my loses. Guess I'll need to check the schematic, and see if there's a fuse in the circuit?

Any helps, thoughts, advice, appreciated!

Genelec's newer speakers now (finally) all have switching power supplies. I can imagine this is a not at all uncommon problem...
