Hi everyone!
I finaly recieved my first MSX2, a sony HB-F1

https://www.mercari.com/jp/items/m57946723882/

But the transformator require, as an input, a 100V with JP plug.

I'd read that 110v is okay but i wouldn't want to hurt it in any way

Do you have some references that work well?
(if possible one that i could buy at Amazon)

thanks a lot in advance! :)

Well your machine does include the adapter so that thread is less relevant for you. It does require 100V but has 10% tolerance, I have not heard any stories of people destroying their MSX by running them on 110V. I was not able to find any transformers that output 100V in Europe, only 110V (from 230V). I had to purchase one from Japan (like a travel transformer for the Japanese). As I am from Europe I got this one (which was recommended on the forum here). I bought a second hand (customer return) because it was cheaper and allowed for international shipping.

With this search: https://www.amazon.co.jp/s?k=海外旅行用変圧器 you can find similar items including some that accept 100V to 240V input, so these will work almost everywhere.

Do you see any reference that can be shipped in France?
Thanks a lot for your help!
