If I order the 220V model will it come with a UK mains plug? I am currently in the US, but this will be for my flat in the UK. Also just wondering if I could run it in the US off of my clothes dryer circuit?

Thanks for the info. It is not a big deal about the mains cord. I can whip one together.

American outlets for 220v are phase to phase, not phase to neutral. That means that in Europe the brown wire is 220v with respect to neutral (blue)  or ground. In America you will have a black and a red that are your "hot"  wires, either of which have a potential of 120v to neutral (white) or ground, and a potential of 220v to each other (red to black). Neutral wires typically have no (or little)  potential to ground when all is well. This means that were you to run a European appliance on a US 220v outlet, one of the wires going into it that was intended to be neutral (blue) is now live with 120v to ground! While it may very well work (also may not), it was never designed to do so and may present a serious safety hazard!

What is the wattage draw at idle and under load of this amplifier. I think a step up stepdown transformer will be the way to go.
