    My friend Maria moved away a year ago and gave me her 2 month old stereo because it was Euro voltage and she was moving to Pittsburg. Pittsburg isn't in Europe. She wasn't able to sell it to anyone for some reason.


    TT and I put it in his apartment last summer when he moved here, shortly thereafter we were evicted, (along with our dear friend Tim) for playing music too loud.

    I tried to sell the cursed thing but it just didnt happen. Finally, a year later a couple of nice Asian ladies came over to buy it.

    I plugged it in showed them that the CD Player worked, the Radio worked and then the tape deck procceded to eat my little sister's ' Monica and Brandy" tape. Then it just broke all together and made mournful clicking noises.
    I managed to get the tape deck open, and now it won't close. The ladies just werent interested anymore and left.

    And I'm out of 200 Euros.

    i had a pretty sick Aiwa walkman back in the day. I didn't realize they were still around. I figured Sony bought them out and that was that.

    here's the scoop.

    Cycles per Second

    in North America the power cycles at 60 hertz and in Europe it's 50.
    Because of that any motors or pumps run at an odd speed. That's why
    the radio will work, and maybe the CD player, but not the tape.

    Because of that issue I ended up with a $500 espresso machine
    that my pops cant use where he is.

    ya!

    isnt that what converters are for?

    i had problems the last time i went to europe and almost burnt out my minidisc player.

    i burnt my palmpilot charger though


    so i reprepped for another trip i was making and got a sony univeral charger. of course you still have to get plug converters but it regulates the voltage no matter where you are on earth.

    ..personally im pretty sony oriented partially because alot of companys buy low grade sony knockoffs and put them in their products.
