Can I use a Japan 100v DJ Mixer in Canada (110v - 120v) Tags: Converter Audio Last response: December 28, 2011 10:59 PM in Home Audio Share thetodj December 19, 2011 8:04:23 PM Hello there, I was given (as a gift) a Japan model Technics DJ Mixer. On the back it says 100v. I know here in Canada we use 110/120v. Is it safe to just plug it in or do I really need a step down converter? I mean 110v to 100v does not seem like much but is it enough to damage the unit? Reason I ask is I have been doing some reading and some say yes and others say no. Does anyone have the background to actually really know? Thanks in advance everyone!

It will work for a while, then fail. thetodj December 28, 2011 10:59:30 PM Did a quick check and my outlet is 120.5v. Way too high to try. More then 10v varieance is a little too much. Found a plug in walk type for $30 with shipping. Worth it. Thx for your help. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
