Question about Bose Wave Radio
Hello @leonsteynsbu (USA to RSA transformer:
If you live near Midrand or Johannesburg areas, you could try RS Components (Radio Shack) in Midrand, or RSE Electronics in Village Main, South of JHB.
I'm sure Zoom (Gadget Electronics Store) at Eastgate Mall used to keep those, but it seems they have moved or closed.
Also try shops at airports, as they used to keep smallish VAC converters.

You need to get a stepdown autotransformer that takes the 220~240vac input and step it down to 120vac (BOSE can handle 50 or 60Hz line frequency), the problem will be getting one with the NEMA5-15R US style outlet so you can plug your BOSE into this step down autotransformer.

Hope this help.
