Will my JVC audio equipment designed for use in the U.S. work overseas?

The Home Audio equipment that U.S. JVC Corporation markets in the United States is specifically designed to be used solely in the United States. Most overseas countries use different voltages and cycles than the United States. The standard voltage and cycles used in the United States are 110 Volts at 60Hz. Many other countries use 220-240 volts at 50Hz. While a voltage adapter can be employed to lower the voltage to 110 volts, there is nothing to convert the foreign cycles from 50Hz to 60Hz. This will cause the unit's power supply to work harder and operate at a higher temperature than it was designed for. This could eventually lead to a decreased life span of the equipment. U.S. JVC corporation does not recommend using the unit under the above conditions any such use would void the unit's original warranty.

Picture The exclusive JVC P.E.M. D.D. (Pulse Edge Modulation Differential-Linearity-Errorless D/A) Converter is touted by media reviewers and audiophiles as one of the most accurate and musical 1-bit D/A converters available. The delicacy and subtlety of the music can be heard at all levels as it was meant to be.
 

DVD supports two types of sound; linear PCM and Dolby Digital (AC-3). Linear PCM combines wide range (higher sampling frequency) with high density . It allows you to enjoy a sound that is even better than the current software (Music CD, for instance) lets you. Dolby Digital features 5 full frequency channels and an independent subwoofer channel, allowing you to experience realistic theater sound at home.
