    Can a US T32R tuner operate in Europe without a problem?

    just the voltage- 110v

    The FM tuning steps might be different, not sure if they had LW

    Apart from 110V, no difference. I know someone having US T32R in Europe.

    Not so fast dudes! Apart from the points mentioned (tuning steps/ranges, mains voltage) it also has pre-emphasis of 75uS so will sound a bit dull in Europe. I suspect a little trip to IAG HQ could have it converted back to European spec though...

    Thanks guys.

    I already have one european version. An early one with serial number 70. Works like a charm. The only problem is that it is black and all my other Tag gear is silver (DVD32R, 250x3, 100x5 and DP) and it looks a little "out of place" in my rack.

    I have (had) the oportunity to buy a silver but it is US specification… I think I'll keep the one I have.

    If you are talking about the silver US one on ebay.com that ended at 00.30 GMT I won the auction for it for $700, so if anyone knows anything bad about that particular unit that the seller didn't disclose to me please let me know ASAP! Specification is ideal for me here in California (where the radio is so lousy anyway that it's likely to be more decorative than anything else...).

    Pity the faceplates aren't easy for the user to change, otherwise I'd be delighted to swap it for your black one to match my AV32R and DVD32FLR... Oh well, at least my Bryston 4BSST is also silver...
