120v vs 240v (CDJ1000)
I've noticed on US eBay is that they sell a couple of 120V CDJ1000 MK1's. I know that the 1000s I've had (MK2's/MK3's) have all been 220-240v.

Just wondering what the difference is between them?

the 120V ones are designed to run on 120V and the 240V run on 240V Ie. If you plug a 120V version into our power sockets its going to go bang.

Alright Lloyd, cheers.. So basically I shouldn't be buying 120v's and retailing them in Australia, as they'll simply blow..?

you'll need the right transformer to make them work or change the power supply inside the unit to a 240V version... but other than that, yes they will blow.


edit: need one of these

there may be a switch located underneath or in a service panel similar to the technics 1200's to switch from 120 to 240.
Ask someone who owns 1000's to check if I'm right.
Have you checked out Marsh Media recently?

there's a switch on the back of my 800s, it's right underneath the "warranty void if broken" sticker. i assume it should be on the 1000s as well...makes sense from a manufacturing point of view

Hahah.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I might leave the 120v's to somebody else and stick to MK2'S/MK3's.

Thanks again and ciao!
