Transformer to run a US Kenwood KR-4140 receiver in the UK
I bought my father a replacement KR-4140 from 1970 for christmas. However, the new one is a US model, and thus runs off 110v mains rather than 240V (we're in the UK).
What is the correct rating for the transformer?
I picked up a 200W rated goldsource transformer (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Goldsource-STU-200-Voltage-Transformer-Converter/dp/B0022TMB9A)
at first, on the basis the receiver says this on the back:
it has a 2A fuse which did not blow when I plugged it in to the transformer.
Neither did the fuse in the transformer blow, yet nothing happens when I turn it on. The seller assures me it was working just before he shipped it.
