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.

Executive Stereo Technology

Picture Active Hyper-Bass SUPER PRO actively controls the boost of low frequencies, to improve bass response and minimize distortion, while compensating for the high frequencies. This not only ensures a harmonious balance between highs and lows, but also delivers a clearer and crisper
sound for highs.
Picture Simply select and press the CD, TAPE, TUNER, or CD-CH button and the COMPU PLAY feature automatically turns the system power on and starts play. You can also insert a CD or cassette into a receiver, and once again COMPU PLAY will trigger your system to turn on and start the music.
3 Independent trays with play exchange behind flip-down door. Play exchange allows the music to continue while you exchange cd's in the remaining tray's.
Hyper Neo Olefin (HNO) cones made of microscopic line ceramic flakes and olefin copolymer produce a natural and dynamic response. They also feature superior resistance to water and high temperatures. Our high-polymer Hyper Neo Olefin cone produces high power, low distortion and a more natural, flat response.
Our P.E.M. D.D. converter has two to four times the resolution of conventional 1-Bit D.A.C.(Digital Audio Circuits) systems, with two independent pulse waves, that are later combined to more than double the resolution greatly enhancing the signal-to-noise ratio and dynamic range.
COMPU LINK utilizes intuitive technology to allow an effective line of communication to exist between your various components. This drastically reduces the amount of time it takes to adjust settings, thereby allowing you to sit back and enjoy your entertainment without the unnecessary burden of technical fumbling.
Through new innovations in layered voice coil technology, JVC has increased space efficiency as well as significantly boosting bass response. Additionally, a copper cap was fashioned onto the center pole piece which greatly reduces distortion for higher clarity. Moreover, the speaker enclosure is built from MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) enclosures with Birdseye Maple finish with the FS-5000 and finished in real European cherrywood enclosures with the FS-7000.
The P.L.L. (phase locked loop) synthesized tuner, ensures drift-free broadcast reception. In addition P.L.L. features a preset function allowing for quick access to stations through seek tuning capability. This enables smooth transition to adjacent frequencies.
The FS-5000 and FS-7000 'fit' anywhere thanks to their personal-sized dimensions. They feature classy looks and exceptional ease of use, and best of all, they deliver sound that is HI-FI in every sense of the word. The CD player's 1-bit digital-to-analog conversation, for instance, guarantees accurate digital sound. The speaker systems combine new and proven technologies to deliver pure listening pleasure. An LCD display, with 2-level back
