TEAC 3340 Voltage question

Hi there!

Just bought this unit on Ebay and now I wait for delivery but there is one issue i'd like to clarify before actual item arrives.

I'm from Ukraine and we only have 220V in circuits but this machine is from US so during more than 30 years of exploitation it was set up for 110V.

I've spent pretty much time on reasearch of user/service manuals for device and found out that there IS an option of switching power supply unit to 220V but I still don't know how risky it is to "touch the dust" in such machine, you know.

Also, there is an option of buying power transformer from 220 to 110 and for this I also need to know how much power this machine has in Watts.

So could anyone help me to make a decision - which way is better? Should I really provide some resoldering work or it's more logical to buy a power transformer (and in last case, i need to know a power capacity of the machine)?

Thank you very much for your help, friends! ;)

Recording On 3340S

Hello,

First time recording.....I am trying to record voice and pre-recorded CD music on my 3340S using 2 channel. I have the CD deck inserted on the back line input for channels 1 and 3 with record buttons on. Then I plug the mic in the front in channel 1. The meters show input on 1 and 3, and I can hear it on headphones....but after recording, playback output for 1 and 3 has music but no voice.

Am I suposed to record voice on rear 3 and 4? If so, I then can't plug in headphones for fron and rear unless I get a Y cable. Or, am I to activate simul-sink for 1 and 3?

Any help on recording this way is appreciated. I also have the Teac mixer but haven't used it.

Robert

It's a two prong, ungrounded, connector. I just purchased a 3440 and think I remember seeing some two element connectors on ebay. Try searching 3440s on ebay if you haven't found one by now. Hopefully, it or they haven't already been sold.

Use a computer plug, its the same deal.
