What do I need to buy to be able to use my fairly expensive stereo/receiver in Sweden?

By "fairly expensive," all in it cost me about ~$3k. So not exorbitant, but expensive and nice enough that I am wiling to spend what it takes (within reason) to be able to use it in Sweden (I'm in America). I am not paying for shipping.

I have this receiver: http://www.amazon.com/Peachtree-iDecco-Stereo-Integrated-Built-In/dp/B0035CIO3A/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1356849151&sr=8-2&keywords=Peachtree+Audio+iDac

I assume that I will need a high-power transformer? I will call around the AV places where I live, but thought someone here would know.

http://www.peachtreeaudio.com/media/support/iDecco_Manual.pdf page 3, item 10:
Voltage switching: For international use. Unplug the iDecco before you make the switch and be sure to use the proper fuse for the voltage chosen. **warning ** Improper voltage setting may cause damage to the iDecco.
You should be OK, you'll just need a new cable or plug adaptor.

Thanks, labberdasher. Looks like I just need to make sure I have the right fuse. That's a chunk of change I don't have to spend!

It's no spelled out on page 3 but it's visible in the picture on page 16: There's a small switch behind the oval cut-out above the power connector. Move this switch to the right.
The fuse itself is in the small compartment on the left side of connector. Just pop off the piece of plastic with the fuse drawing on it and the fuse should come out.
The connector is a standard IEC C18, you can use the same type of lead that's used on computer equipment.
