Genelec Speakers 6010a voltage question
Answer

Hey Genelec community,
 
I recently returned from California where I was working for the past few months and brought home with me a pair of Genelec 6010a speakers (https://www.genelec.com/support-technology/previous-models/6010a-studio-monitor).
Unfortunately voltage didn't occur to me at the time and on the back of the devices it reads:
 
Mains Input
50 / 60 Hz 35 W 120V.
 
Is there anything recommended so that I can use these speakers on a consistent/permanent basis ?
 
All the best
 
Max

Hi Max,

Sorry for late reply! To use 120V -version in 230V, you would need a step up transformer because you need to convert the 110V AC voltage to 230 volts. You can use a single transformer for a pair of speakers. For a pair of 6010A speakers it should have a power rating of at least 140 VA. We don't have any recommendations for brand or model. There will be no sound quality loss.
