I am hoping to buy a jukebox from the US and bring it to Australia. It contains a 25.2V CT 2.0A Heavy-Duty Chassis-Mount Transformer with Lead
Model: 273-1512 | Catalog #: 273-1512.

Can anyone confirm whether the transformer will function correctly given that the US have 110v 60Hz and Australia has 220v 50Hz? I will be using a step-down transformer for the voltage but will the difference in Hz be a concern? I appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks in advance.

The transformer will heat more due to the lower frequency but otherwise operate fine.

But, since 25V CT (24V CT, close enough) is a very common value, why not purchase a transformer designed for 220V at 50Hz and swap it in? That way you can avoid the external step down transformer. Keep the original handy if you want to put it back to stock.

Hi Aaron

I like your idea. Can you please excuse my ignorance and let me know of a viable replacement model number that I can easily buy online? Thanks for your help.
