    Have you checked the label on the stereo to see what voltages it will run off?

    You need to look as a US site, they will probably list a suitable adapter. Or even E Bay.

    Rechargeable batteries and a charger that will run on 115v.
    Use that with radio.
    Just a note that some items will run on both 115v and 240v. Toothbrush, shaver, and maybe your radio. Look at radio small print on it or instructions. Batteries will be safer. Using transformer might cause trouble
