Moving to Europe. Can I take my...


I'm relocating to Europe. Wanted to know how the 60Hz "requirement" of most of my gear will be affected by the 50Hz power in the local area. Example: Event ASP8s are rated for 120V/60Hz. If I run them through a voltage converter, how will the power frequency affect their performance?!

Same basics apply for a slew of equipment. Is it worth it the effort or should I be looking to offload a lot of gear?!

Thanks for any advice...

Don't know how much this helps you (I live in Norway), but I do have some 110V equipment in my studio. (Some preamps, some FX and a sans amp).

As long as the power is stable where your going and you spend some money for high quality transformer you should be good.

Best of luck
