linnie01 - right now I’ve got the Linn playing until my Step Up Transformer comes from Amazon so I can play the Meridian 551. Turns out, in order to convert the Meridian to 230V, I would need to send back to the UK and get a new $400 toroidal transformer, so I got a $70, 1500 watt SUT instead.
Unfortunately, my Ariston TT is going to require some major surgery to convert the voltage. Actually, it might be very easy but the set up itself will be a pain. I have to turn it upside down and remove screws from the base, so I will remove the tonearm first for safe measure. I then have to tape a small container to the center spindle area to catch the oil when I turn it upside down. I’m hoping from there it will be self explanatory to switch it from Motor Code Red (100-120V / 60 Hz) to Motor Code White (200-240V / 50 Hz).
