Whilst trading with some of the recent Shindo equipment i've been selling i had many enquiries about the voltage.
A dude in Germany provided this contact, frankly which is gold dust.
The guy who runs this place is apparently one of the unsung audio geniuses...people are often lauded as such in the industry but normally its the word of mouth guys that REALLY do the business.
So, you can buy many many excellent parts from this company. Including, interestingly for me, extremely high quality step down voltage converters. These allow USA or japanese components to work even better than if running the 230V equivalent from UK mains.
OR, the guy can manufacture very high quality replacement transformers...even upgrading the ones from Shindo themselves. I'm thinking of having the Shindo's and future equipemt changed over to 230V by this method.

Ps. I'll be adding this on PFM too...sorry!
