    Tascam 414 mkii power question:

    This is probably a stupid question, but I have no shame and am going to ask it anyway...

    Does anyone have experience with a Japanese Tascam Portastudio from the late 90s or early 2000s? From what I have seen, they were usually black instead of the blue color that we are used to seeing with the Porta 02, 414 mkii and 424 mkiii. The reason I ask is that I am considering picking up a 414 mkii that fits the description and Iím curious about the power requirements. Speaking as someone who lives in Pittsburgh rather than Tokyo, will the machine and its included charger cause me any headaches? I doubt that there would be any issues, but like I said at the beginning: this is a stupid question asked by someone who is aware of this fact and has no shame.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you're asking whether it'll be designed for 220 volts instead of 110, I'm not sure. I do know, however, that you can get a transformer adapter for not too much on ebay (maybe $20 or so) that will allow you to use it in the US.
