    I was planning my next upgrade to be the a11sr (from 3802) but have been offered a US 4802 which I believe is the same model, but with better remote control.

    Apart from needing a step down psu, is there any reason why it wouldnt work or be suitable for use in the uk?

    Anyone have experience of using a 4802 in the uk?

    Cheers!

    you are going to be looking at some serious money on a stepdown for that amp.

    this isnt going to be a £50 stepdown from maplins ;)

    Alot of industrial machinery uses 100v at 50hz so you may be able to use one of those, but then you may add alot of noise.

    You could have a look at the Isotek Qubes - you can get those configured for American kit and although expensive, they supposedly offer a night and day improvement to sound quality.

    1kw Qube is £1200 though.....

    Just so you know, the 4802 has been superceded by the 4802R now. Apart from the hassle of stepdown transformers etc you wouldn't be buying a current model.
