[#1] US plugs in Hong Kong - why not UK plugs?     
Hi - my question:

Why are there so many hifi dealers in Hong Kong selling US power cords and US mains blocks?

Is it possible to reterminate a US plug to a UK/HK plug?

Or will there be voltage issues or ground, live, earth construction problems?

If I buy a US plug power cord, where can I safely reterminate to a UK/HK plug?

Thanks.

Yes.

Just make sure L N is correct. Not a easy job, unless you use Furutech.

I have that Furutech mains plug on my Amp power plug.

So you are saying it is not easy, but it is easier or possible with that exact Furutech power plug?

Will there be no problems of using a cable that is made in the US market, and to change the US plug to a UK plug?

No issues of blowing up my equipment or having an incorrect voltage power?

I want to buy this power cable and change it with the Furutech UK plug - is it possible to terminate it this way?

The reason is because this is a reference level powercord that normally costs 600usd.
