What you're looking for is called a step-down voltage convertor.

You'll have trouble finding a 220V > 100V stepdown transformer though, at least I couldn't find one. My Turbo-R has been eating 120V for years though, and seems to be just fine. The power supply runs a little hot tho...

They should be easy to get! If not in your local electronics store, then try online.
Both in Japan and the USA (+canada?) they use 100-110V. Where in the world do they use 120V?!

Actually we do use 120V in the US. I had to get a step down converter to 100V for my Yamaha because every time I turned it on I could smell something burning. Definitely not good! No more burning smell with the converter though.

There is no real alternative. I guess you could replace the internal power supply, but this is a lot more work and will have a similar price-tag. On a side note, 150 euros is simply ridiculous for a 50W stepdown converter. I paid about 25 euros for a 500W up/down converter which I bought in Holland. France should have similar prices. They are not hard to find, by the way. Every half-ass electronic's shop will sell them. Do *not* buy a converter with sine-wave adjustment though, those are expensive and not needed at all. All you need is a simple 'travel voltage adaptor' which should cost no more than 20 euros. Look no further for a solution to your problem. If you *really* can't find one, I'll buy you one here and send it over. This would be a waste though, since you'd pay about 10 to 15 euros for shipping.

The cheapest solution.
In fact, you need only a ordinary transformer 220>110 v and the right connectors, build it in a case.
Since the power is alternating current, there can't go much wrong.
Have a look @ WWW.CONRAD.COM they have french pages to.
