Can anyone check to see if their CLP's have a "voltage selector" dial as shown in the images below:

The snap shots were taken from the Owner's Manual:

Note that in the US the voltage for wall outlets is 120 volts although the image above shows the voltage selector dial as having four options:

110, 127, 220, 240

None of the numbers on the dial match the "120" as needed in the US so am I correct to assume that the CLP-480 I am getting will probably not have a voltage selector?

Since I live in the US please note that the voltage for wall outlets is 120 volts although the image above shows the voltage selector dial as having four options:

110, 127, 220, 240

It appears as if no one in this forum may own a CLP-480 as of yet (and is also in the US) so I will probably need to wait for the piano to arrive before I can verify this.


US voltages are typically much closer to 110V than 127V. Just use the 110V setting. There is a margin for error with voltages. A 10% margin on consumer electronics is not considered significant. Japan uses 110V .

The US (and Canada) run at 120 VAC. So, from the four options, choose 127.

He won't have to choose from anything - the dealer will bring it fully assembled and ready to go.

I do have to admit that the 127 appears odd.
Where I live. They love to use a 4 wire Wye configuration.
At my apartment. I'm at about 123 to 124 volts.

The US and Canada models do not even have this option. The power supply doesn't have a selectable voltage. Ignore what the manual shows.

There will be a power plug but probably no voltage selector dial. I am guessing that the voltage selector dial does not apply to US models. Just plug in the power cord as usual and that's it. Will be able to confirm this when the piano arrives and can look to see before plugging it in.

Yes, there is simply no dial at all.
