I will be moving from the US to Australia and I am bringing my 1972 Marantz 2215b receiver (which my dad gave to me and I recently had restored). The receiver is 15w per channel.

Since US is 120v, 60Hz AC electicity and Australia is 220v 50Hz AC electricity, I plan on using a step-down transformer.

My two questions are:

1. Do I need to worry about the frequency difference (i.e., 60Hz vs 50Hz)?

2. Given 15w per channel, how big of a transformer do I need? Will a small 200w stepdown transformer suffice?

Thanks!

Frequency should not affect the unit (it's not motorized), but for the wattage, you can't judge by the channel output. There should be a Watt rating label somewhere on the back.
