Hi, I have a set of Yamaha hs5 from the states and brought them to the uk. Me being me I blew one of em up and realised exactly what I did, I didn’t convert the voltage down from 240v to 110v. I replaced the fuse and plugged it into a transformer and the thing is still buggered does anyone know where I can get the parts I need to get it working again? Or is that the end of the speaker? Thanks

Been there, done that if it has a linear power supply (which is a reasonable bet as most switched mode PSUs are able to cope with100-250 VAC, there are exceptions, I believe but I've never seen one) it is probably worth checking if it is just the transformer primary that has died, in the case of the US made GEQ I 'popped' a replacement tranny made it as good as new.
