Hi folks,
today i've got a TX-1 to review but the power supply trasformer is 110V (with US plug type). I should buy a power converter or I can use another kind of wallwart?

Cheers,
Luca

Hi, Luca.

TX-1 User Manual wrote:

Use the one that CAME WITH THE AGONIZER. The Agonizer needs 10v to 12v AC power ONLY. DC will damage it, suckboy.


You must feed 12 volts AC into Metasonix equipment. There are virtually no "wall wart" supplies that put out adequate AC power, which is why the manuals recommend (no, insist, even threaten) that you use only 12VAC supplies.

Now, if you were handy with both electrical hardware catalogs and electrical things, and understand AC from DC, you would source a proper 12V AC supply (proper transformers are available) and wire it properly. But if you don't get it right, it won't be good for the TX-1.

Best bet is a stepdown transformer. You don't need a very big one for something as small as the TX-1.
