  • 220 Volt Washers and Dryers

    220 volt washers and dryers
    Depending where you're located in the world, it's not always easy to shop for home appliances.

  • 220 Volt Audio/Video Receivers for Global Use

    220 volt audio/video receiversHome theater systems have come a long way in recent years. What began as a TV with surround sound speakers and a basic audio/video receiver or equalizer has evolved into a highly versatile media system, capable of interacting with a variety of other devices and data. Just 15 years ago we used to boast about how real our surround sound seemed during an action movie. Today we can watch the movie without a disc by streaming in 4k Ultra HD over a high-speed wireless internet connection. We have Blu-ray Players with internet browsers and apps, TVs with voice control and multi-room audio controlled by centrally located audio/video receivers. We can use our smartphones to control the volume or change media from other parts of our homes and we can wirelessly send home videos to our Smart TVs for easy family viewing. We're living in an age of rapidly advancing technology and 220 volt audio/video receivers are just one of the many conveniences we're able to use for our multi-media enjoyment.
     

    What is a 220 Volt Audio/Video Receiver?

    A 220 volt audio/video receiver is the same as any other audio/video receiver with the exception that they're designed to work with any voltage. This ability is also referred to as worldwide voltage. In countries that utilize 220 or 240 volt electricity, the selection of electronics is often very limited and consumers face higher prices. To find a specific model or brand of receiver at an affordable price, many people use the internet to purchase products from abroad. However, this method poses a problem - an audio/video receiver from North America, for example, is designed to work with 120 volt electricity and isn't compatible with 220 or 240 volts electricity. The 220 volt receivers fill this void by working with any voltage, giving the buyer truly global versatility and the freedom to purchase the exact brand and model they're interested in.
     

    What Features do 220 Volt Audio/Video Receivers Have?

    All 220 volt audio/video receivers feature the same functionality as their relative non-global models. For example, the 220 Volt Yamaha RX-V681 Receiver features the same exact options and features as the 120 volt unit. The only difference is that the 220 volt version has been professionally modified by a specialty retailer to function with any voltage. You will still be able to enjoy a diverse array of media and features just as the manufacturer intended, but you'll be able to enjoy it anywhere in the world without the need for a voltage converter or transformer.
     

    Where Can I Buy a 220 Volt Audio Receiver?

    As mentioned above, 220 volt audio/video receivers are not available in major retail stores. The reason for this is because manufacturers only design these units to be used with the local voltage of where they are being sold. Players destined for North America are only compatible with 120 volt electricity. If you see a 220 volt audio/video receiver for sale online, don't assume the same model from Wal-Mart or Best Buy will work in a country with 220 volt electricity - it will not.
     
    In order to find a real 220 volt audio/video receiver with worldwide voltage, you need to shop at a specialty retailer. These are the companies that purchase the units directly from the manufacturer and then modify the hardware for dual voltage compatibility. At 220 Electronics, we do exactly that.
     
    With other 35 years of experience in global electronics and appliances - including 220 volt audio/video receivers - we know our stuff. We've helped tens of thousands of customers with their overseas relocation as well as aided with their purchases of global, multisystem and region-free electronics and appliances. Our experience and guaranteed low prices are what set us apart from our competitors. Check out our selection of 220 volt audio/video receivers today and find exactly what you need at a price you can afford.

  • Moving Overseas with Electronics

    multi system tvsEach year there are millions of people who move overseas or decide to live abroad. Some make the move for business, others for retirement, and many do it for better living opportunities or simply to be with family. It's a growing trend with an estimated (and surprising) global rise of over 30% in 2012 alone. Making the decision to move to another country or continent is a big one and definitely requires its fair share of careful planning.
     
    One very important factor that is often overlooked, ignored, or just completely forgotten about is taking your electronics. No, we're not talking about literally forgetting to take your electronics - we're talking about being able to use them once you get there.
     
    If you're wondering "What?! Why wouldn't I be able to use my electronics once I get there?", than you need to keep reading.
     
    Many parts of the globe, believe it or not, are not operating at your standard levels of voltage. It's true! Although most people are well aware of this minor yet important setback (especially those international travelers who've found out the hard way) or have heard of it at some previous point in their lifetime, it's easy to forget. Considering all of the planning, effort, and money that goes into making an international move, the last thing you'd want to forget or not be aware of is this:
     
    North America, most of Central/South America, and The Caribbean have electricity services operating at a uniformed standard of 110 Volts. For the most part, and with the exception of Japan, everyone else is operating at a standard of 220 Volts. (For the record, to avoid confusion and for technical purposes only, the 110 and 220 are not exact voltages as 110 is considered to be anything between 110 and 127 volts, while 220 is considered to be anything between 220 and 240 volts)
     
    So now you know. The next important question is "what does it mean and what can I do about it?"
     
    First off, and most importantly, you should understand that if your electrical devices or appliances are made for a 110 volts that they will not work in a country where the standard is 220 volts. Secondly, you can easily identify what voltage your devices have been manufactured for by looking at the manufacturer's label.
     
    The next step you should take is to find out what voltage standard the country you're heading to is operating on. This can be done with a simple internet search; seeing that you're reading this online, we already know that you have an internet connection. Excellent.
     
    Once you've discovered which voltage your belongings use and which voltage is offered at your destination, the next step is deciding what electrical devices you'll be bringing with you. Keep in mind that the following options are available to you at this point

    • Bring your electronic/electrical devices with you when you move and ensure their full functionality by purchasing a voltage converter
    • Leave your electronics behind and purchase new ones upon reaching your destination
    • Purchase multi-system electronics

     
    Typically, you'll find that your decision is going to include a combination of the above.
     
    Of course the smaller, more important and user-specific items such as computers, laptops, cell phones, and electric razors can be easily transported in luggage. Therefore, a voltage converter is the best option as it's simple, allows you to keep your existing devices, and saves you from having to spend money on new purchases. Voltage converters (also known as voltage transformers) allow you to use your 110 volt device in a 220 volt environment, and vice-versa. The voltage converter plugs into the wall and you simply plug your devices into the converter itself. Simple, reliable, and cost effective.
     
    Meanwhile, larger appliances such as washers and dryers are big and bulky and use excessive electricity. In this case, you're probably planning to purchase these products in your destination country. However, if you'd prefer to save money, you should purchase the 220 volt appliances locally beforehand as they are less costly than in a 220-standard destination. The situation is similar with multi-system electronics. Multi-system electronics hold the unique and convenient ability to operate in both the 110 volt and 220 volt environments. Televisions and home theater systems are the two most popular and commonly purchased multi-system electronic products.
     
    Additionally, there's another unique product, this one being for those who take their movies seriously. Region Free DVD and Blu-Ray Players, also known as "code free" or "multi-region" players. These players can play DVD and Blu-Ray discs that have been encoded for use only in players sold within within that same region. The purposes behind the manufacture and encoding of region-specific discs are many:

    • Price differences in different regions
    • The ability to control different release dates for different countries
    • Preventing the playability of certain materials for religious, cultural, or political purposes

     
    If you're a movie fan, if you plan on bringing your collection with you, or if you simply enjoy the ability to purchase and watch a movie in your native language a multi-region DVD player is exactly what you need. For Example, a multi-region DVD player will allow you to play DVD's which have been bought locally as well as those that have been purchased online from another country. Should you decide to live abroad or travel from country to country, a region-free player offers total convenience.
     
    Last but not least, you should be aware that there are various styles of outlets that pose yet another obstacle. Different types of wall outlets/sockets mean that even if you have a converter, you might not be able to plug it in. Additionally, you may thing you are moving to a country with the same voltage standard but fail to realize that the plugs for your devices are not identical. Luckily, there are foreign voltage plug adapter kits, allowing you to easily plug in anywhere around the globe.
