I think those have switchable line voltage. Meaning, the switch is probably set to 230v instead of 115v, and it probably comes with a European connector on the end of the IEC cable. I think it would work just fine with a flip of a switch and an American power cable. Just a guess though.

If that is so…this could come in handy for someone for such an easy conversion… Is it common though to have the Euro versions in stock in the US ??...

The spec sheet shows the amp module having a line voltage selector switch.  I suspect Brian is correct.

Replace the line cord with the proper IEC-Edison model and it looks like you'll be good to go.

May need a new fuse to match the different voltage/current profile too?

No fuse change required. The universal power supply just needs the proper IEC cable (and the switch in the proper position).

That's not a good price. I paid $899 each for 2 (new) at GC when the 700 series came out. I'm thinking a good price should be 1K or less.

I agree - I wouldn't pay that myself but for those folks who are struggling to find them even used and need to match existing boxes, it is an alternative….at least they can be sure that these are in perfect condition with all original parts….

I'm getting me another PRX718xlf….
