Hi All
I have today taken delivery of my new Yamaha AV3101 from Pixmania. unpacked and discovered the plugs are all two pin, french i presume. I was expecting them to be UK plugs. What is the best way to resolve this? Do i need some sort of power convertor or will i be able to get away with a travel plug? I don't have a clue with these things so any help anyone can give me to get underway would be greatly appreciated.:smashin:

unfortunately not, the lead is not detachable

i was thinking of going for one of these

or one of these

any thoughts on whether these would be suitable?

i need two, one for the receiver and one for the sub.

the top link is the plug you need,the "euro plug".
and while at it,phone up pixmania,they are supposed to stick 2 in the amp box,and sometimes only put 1 or put nothing at all.
they will send them out for free.

Deff give Pixmania a phone. I ordered a digital camera from them and it also came with a UK adaptor. Says somewhere on the site that they will supply UK adaptors with all goods.

thanks for the help guys, called them earlier and two are winging their way to me as we speak (supposedly, time will tell)
