  • Multisystem Audio/Video Receivers for Global Use

    multisystem audio video receiversWhen you're looking for the best selection and the lowest prices on Multisystem Audio/Video Receivers for 220 volt use, it's important to know where to start your search. Most department stores and electronics outiftters only offer a small selection of models to choose from and carry a limited number of brands. When making purchases from these stores, you're going to end up paying higher prices for a small selection - and if you didn't know any better you might assume that's your only choice. For some people in countries with a 220 volt electrical standard, the selections are small and the prices are high since sales are lower and the demand for high quality electronics is not very prevalent. This means that anyone looking for specific model of audio/video receiver probably won't be able to find it locally. Furthermore, you can get specialized models equipped with worldwide voltage which can be used anywhere in the world.
     
    The story is the same for anyone moving from North America to a 220 volt country for retirement, business, or long-term travel. Most likely, you'll be rather disappointed when it comes to purchasing electronics. If you're in a region where you don't speak the native language it only compounds the problem, as your struggles with finding home electronics can escalate to the point of sheer frustration. For all of these situations there's a simple solution - shopping online. The age of the internet has made it easier to find the models you want from the brands you trust, at prices much more affordable than the major stores. But where do you go? There's no better place to do it than at 220-Electronics.com, where you can browse and buy the most popular models from the top brand names and have your new audio/video receiver delivered directly to your door in practically any country in the world.
     
    At 220 Electronics, all of our multisystem audio and video receivers are designed for use with any voltage from 110 to 240 volts. These professionally modified units (not available in department stores or major electronics stores) feature a switch on the rear allowing you to change the voltage. It's really that easy. If you're in a 220 or 240 volt country like the UK, India, UAE or China, you set your unit to 220-240 volts. If you're in a 110 or 120 volt country like the US, Canada or Mexico, simply set your receiver to 110-120 volts. There's no need for special cables or voltage converters. The are truly global receivers that can be used in any home theater in any country.
     
    The selection of brands and models we offer include the best available such as Yamaha, Denon, Polk Audio.

  • 220 Volt Ranges and Ovens

    220 volt ranges and ovensIf you're like most of us you probably spend a decent amount of time in the kitchen, and even more time if you have a family. It's a place where food is made, conversations are had, the news is read, and coffee is brewed. But what's a good kitchen without good appliances? You can always get by with what you have, but owning a nice range/oven makes a big difference in how easily and efficiently you can prepare meals. It can also add a bit of style to your kitchen.
     
    If you're in a country using 220 volt electricity, you might find it hard to find a good range. The selection could be less than impressive and the prices quite alarming - especially for the latest name brand models. This can be even more true if you're from a western country and moving overseas, and the selection in other regions is rather limited to what is available in North America and part of Europe. Anyone who's relocating and trying to furnish a home runs the risk of paying nearly double what they'd pay at home for appliances that are..... less than impressive.
     
    Luckily, there are places like 220 Electronics (that's us) who carry a large inventory of gas and electric ranges for 220 volt use. Instead of shopping in a foreign country or settling for a range/oven you aren't very happy with, you can shop online and find exactly what you're looking for at an excellent price.
     
    What can we offer you? A great selection, great prices, worldwide shipping and a one-stop-shop for all your kitchen needs including 220 volt ranges and ovens. We carry both gas and electric models from Frigidaire, GE, EF Elba, Whirlpool and more. With the features you need - such as extra cooking space with this Frigidaire 5-Burner Commercial Quality Gas Stove, or the luxurious Whirlpool Double Oven Gas Range - you can save time and money in the kitchen. So what are you waiting for? Shop our inventory of 220 volt ranges and ovens today. If you need assistance, our customer service will be happy to answer your questions and make recommendations.

  • Affordable Region Free Blu-ray Players

    affordable region free blu-ray playersFor some people their home theater is an important aspect of their home, and they'll constantly upgrade to the latest and greatest models. New receivers, larger TVs, and more powerful surround sound speakers are common items purchased by home theater fanatics. On the other hand, some people just want something that works. They don't need 3D playback, a 82-inch TV, or a 1,000-watt audio video receiver. It's for this second group of less demanding consumers that we carry a lineup of more affordable Region Free Blu-ray Players with everything you need to watch Blu-ray discs from anywhere in the world.
     
    Our region-free Blu-ray players are not available in stores. While they're the same models that are sold in stores, there's a difference. We take our players and have them professionally modified for global playback. They will play discs from any region of the world, they work with any voltage from 110 to 240 volts, and they feature internal PAL/NTSC conversion. There's no need for a voltage converter or a video converter. You can take your region-free player anywhere and use it to play any disc, from anywhere in the world, on any TV. The store-bought models don't have these universal, region-free capabilities.
     
    Normally, you're looking at spending about $150 for a decent yet basic Blu-ray player from a major department store. If you just want to watch movies and have basic features that's fine - but if you want a player that can play any disc you put in it, you'll need something region free. Most region-free players are expensive as you're paying for the cost of the player itself plus the parts and labor for the professional modifications that make the player region-free. They can run anywhere from $150 to $450 for a decent low to mid-range model. However, there are exceptions.
     
    What we've done is taken some of the most popular inexpensive players and modify them for global use while keeping a low price. The Region Free Sony BDP-S1700 is a full HD Blu-ray Player that features 1-button region switching and is just $99. Our Region Free Samsung BD-J5100 offers similar features at the same low price of $99. Both of these players offer streaming media services, but they don't have Wi-Fi so you'll need a hard-wired connection. Regardless, you're getting excellent flexibility and features for your dollar. We have many more low-priced models with additional features and options, all in stock and ready to ship at the guaranteed lowest price. Check out or complete inventory of Region Free Blu-ray Players today and shop with confidence.

  • Region-Free Blu-ray Players for the United Kingdom

    region free Blu-ray players for the UKWhether you're originally from the UK or just living there for an extended period of work or school, you might be interested in playing Blu-ray and DVD discs from other countries. If you're trying to play foreign movies or would like to order foreign movies online, look no further. All you'll need to accomplish this is a Region-Free Blu-ray Player for United Kingdom. These professionally modified players utilize specialized hardware and software that unlock the full capabilities of the machine. This includes worldwide voltage - which lets you use your player anywhere in the world without a voltage transformer - and full PAL/NTSC conversion so you'll never need an external video converter. Region-Free Blu-ray players for Europe are designed to work anywhere in the world, with any TV, to play any disc.
     
    Sure, you can search online and try to find region-codes to "hack" your Blu-ray player, enabling it to play discs from anywhere. However, this method isn't foolproof and more often than not, your player will lock up after a certain number of region changes, leaving the player stuck and only able to play discs from the last region you used (often a foreign region). Since nobody wants their player to become useless, it's much smarter and simpler to purchase a professionally modified Region-Free Player that will play all of your European discs, as well as discs from any other region.
     
    One of the best things about these modified players is that the companies who sell them have Region-Free versions of all the top brands and models, from Samsung and Sony up to the more high-end brands like Denon and Oppo. All you need to do is find a trusted retailer and be sure the player you're purchasing is advertised as Region-Free. These models are not available in department stores, so don't be confused by the fact that region-free retailers sell the same models available in your favorite stores. Again, these are the same models but they've been professionally modified with specialty hardware and software for total, universal playback and compatibility.

  • Voltage Converters for Kuwait

    voltage converters for kuwaitAre you going to Kuwait to work live for an extended period? If so, you'll probably want to consider taking a voltage converter along with you. Kuwait uses 240-volt electricity, and your North American electronics are designed for use with 120 volts. This means that Kuwait's voltage is double what your electronics are intended for, and it's not safe to use them without running the risk of fire, electric shock, and damage to your devices.
     
    A voltage converter - also known as a voltage transformer - literally transforms the voltage either up or down in order to achieve a desired voltage output. For example, in Kuwait where the voltage is 240 volts, you'll need your voltage converter to transform the electricity down to 120 volts so your North American electronics can safely be used. This kind of converter is called a step-down converter. It steps the voltage down from a higher level (240 volts) to a lower level (120 volts). The converter itself is simple to use - just plug it into the wall outlet like any other electronic device. The converter is equipped with outlets where your devices can then be plugged in. The converter then works between your device and the electrical outlet to control the voltage, ensuring that your devices are being powered by the proper voltage they were they were intended to be used with.
     
    Voltage converters for Kuwait are available in a variety of sizes based on wattage. It’s necessary to have a converter that can handle the wattage of your devices, so it's recommended that you use a converter rated for double the wattage of your devices. For example, for a 900-watt coffee maker, you’ll want to buy a 1,500-watt voltage converter. This ensures proper functionality during prolonged or heavy use, and to prevent any issues with voltage surges or fluctuations. Using that same 900-watt coffee maker with a converter that's only rated for 1000 watts means your converter will be running hard and at full capacity, leading to a shorter lifespan while leaving no buffer for protection against power surges or fluctuations. To learn how many watts you’ll need so you can purchase the proper voltage converter for Kuwait, just check the manufacturers label of your electronics. Normally you'll find a tag on the power cord or a label on the device itself defining the wattage it consumes when operating. If you want to power more than a single device with your voltage converter - such as a Blu-ray player and a TV - you'll need to combine the wattage of each device, then purchase a converter rated for double. If your TV is rated at 400-watts and your Blu-ray player at 75-watts, you have a total of 475-watts. In this situation, a 1000-watt voltage converter is sufficient to keep everything operating safely and securely in all conditions.
     
    As specialists in international electronics and voltage converters for Kuwait, 220 electronics offers a broad of converters for a variety of applications, from 500 to up to 15,000 watts. Visit our website today and browse our selection of quality converters at our guaranteed low prices. We also carry models with built-in voltage regulators for anyone seeking the ultimate in protection for extremely pricey or sensitive electronics. Our voltage converter buying guide will help you determine exactly which type and model is perfect for your needs.

Your voltage converter for Kuwait will help you save time, money, and prevent any damage to your valuable electronics while overseas.

  • Air Conditioners for 220 Volts

    220 volt air conditionersIt's already May and summer is around the corner, which means it's time get ready for hot and humid temperatures. If you don't currently have an air conditioning unit or are looking to upgrade the one you have, we have some excellent options available. You're going to want to enjoy the comfort that an air conditioner offers on those hot nights and even hotter days. This is especially true in countries or regions with the hottest climates.

Keep in mind that the selection isn't always the best in foreign countries. In many parts of the world, electronics cost much more than in North America due to the small number of sales and the increased costs of importing small quantities of these products for a small market.
     
    Additionally, in many foreign countries you will quickly discover that houses equipped with air conditioners are usually outdated and consume so much power that they're not nearly economical for everyday cooling. So what do you do when you want a better selection, better performance and a better price? Shop online. At 220 Electronics, we stock a large inventory of 220-volt electronics and appliances. Our specialty is helping clients who are relocating internationally by offering a one-stop-shop for purchasing everything they'll need in a foreign country and then shipping it all to their destination.
