krk classic 5 Adaptor

Postby mikkiyo » Thu Apr 15, 2021 11:29 am

Hello
Just purchased a pair of krk classic 5 (pair)
From the USA and since I’m living in EU the volt difference is 110 to 220 (100watts each)
Was wondering which adaptor I should get to avoid monitors being blown
Was suggested to go for 200w for each so as to handle the overload (am a producer and work for hours on sound design)
Would appreciate if you could suggest any adaptor brand that I could order online
Thanks

Did you buy them off a retailer? Much better would be to return them and buy some with the correct power requirements. Any transformer or convertor is running the risk of introducing noise into your system.

Bought them from the states and it’d be hard to shop them back
Any proven facts that converters would damage the monitors ?
What if I use a converter with 200w for each ?

There are plenty of converters on Amazon but the quality is not assured. They are unlikely to damage the speakers unless they fail but whether they will be noise free is another matter. WRT power something rated for around twice the consumption of the speakers should be fine.
