    Hello, I have a Laney RB3 amp that I got in Korea and was hoping someone could recommend a voltage converter (brand/model number, etc) so I can use it in the US. I have attached a picture of the back of the amp for the specs of the RB3.

    I did a search on eBay for converters, so for example would either of these units work for the Laney?

  2. Hi.

    The "maximum power consumption" vs the fuse/voltage rating doesn't quite compute, but I'd assume that anything over 200VA (W) shuld be sufficient. Based on the "maximum power consumption" figure of 100W.

    Do search the possibility of a dual primary transformer in Your amp as well, could be possible that a tech could convert it internally for you.

    Thanks for the info! I just sent an email to Laney to see if they can tell me whether or not it has a dual primary transformer.
