    Power converter for digital piano

    I have a Digital Piano that says the following on the back:

    117V~ 50/60Hz 57W

    The manufacturer told me I should ship it to HK and buy a power converter. But I've read the threads on this topic, and am not sure if that is a good idea or not. I understand it's NOT a good idea to bring rice cookers, and hairdryers, etc. It's best just to buy new things in HK. But a digital piano seems to be a bit more pricey.

    Any advice appreciated!

    Thanks,

    You should easily be able to find a converter for that sort of device in HK.

    just fyr, digital pianos (e.g. yamaha clavinovas) are much cheaper in hk than they are in the states / europe. i would say around 40% lower.

    all you need is a step down transformer that can Handle about 100W & their very common in places like Sham Shui Po.

    it is OK to step up/ down transformers for low power items but for those stuff that are 300W over & that have motors & heating element it would not be adviceable.
