It depends on the voltage rating of your Yamaha S70XS. The S70XS is designed to operate on 110-120V AC power, which is the standard voltage rating used in the United States and some other countries. In the European Union, the standard voltage rating is 220-240V AC.

If you try to plug your US-bought Yamaha S70XS directly into a European power outlet, the difference in voltage could cause damage to the keyboard's internal components, or it may not work at all.

However, it is possible to use your Yamaha S70XS in Europe by using a power converter or voltage transformer that can convert the European 220-240V AC power to the 110-120V AC power that the keyboard is designed to use. You will need to purchase a power converter that is rated to handle the power requirements of your keyboard, typically around 100-120W.

Alternatively, you can also purchase a new power adapter that is designed to work with the voltage rating in the European Union, but you will need to make sure that the adapter is compatible with your specific keyboard model.
