    I hope I'm not posting in the wrong forum, though I think this question does have some relevance :D

    This is for any EE or related expert. I have an old SB Extigy that I bought when I was in the States before coming back to Korea, and it came with an adapter that has the following stats:

    Input: 120VAC 60Hz 19W
    Output: 12VDC 1A
    Polarity symbol: [​IMG]

    The standard voltage in Korea is 220V, and every time I've been using it, I had to use a transformer. My question is, could I get an adaptor that has identical specs as above, but with an input of 220VAC instead, and still use the Extigy?

    I would assume so, although I really am no expert so I don't know where you would find it.

    There are plenty of adapters on sale with those specs, but I just want to make sure it's safe and sound. This is pretty much my only gateway to 5.1 on an iMac.

    But thanks for your answer, though.
