Receiver in japan - power transformer for use in Germany?


Nov 18, 2017
Dear forum members,

One question! I am in Japan at the moment and I have found a Yamaha receiver which I want to buy(Rx s601). The issue is that I would like to use it in Germany and yesterday the colleague from japan said due to the 100 V that all the electrical equipment work with in Japan, I would need a transformer in order to be compatible for the 230v for Germany. Then he showed me some transformers that weight 10 kilos each and I am wondering:
Is he right?
When I need a transformer is there something more light you would recommend that I could buy when I am back in Europe?

Thank u in advance,
Ps obviously the reason why I would prefer to buy the receiver from japan is that is half priced in comorison to Germany
