If I were to purchase a Pioneer HTS-GS1 in the US, would I be able to use it in the UK if I rerwired the plug - i.e. is the internal PSU capable of taking the UK 240v rather than the US 110v, or do I HAVE to buy a unit here?

Do a search for RS Catalogue. They have them for sure. Reckon about £35 for one.
Not sure what it is you have bought but lots of electronics work on dual voltage nowadays. Camcorders/hairdryers/laptops etc. Worth checking. If it does, then changing the plug over will be Ok

RS Catalogue

Maplin also springs to mind.

Just got one of these from America. Was on holiday and got it for $160 delivered and just brought it back with my luggage. All set up and am well chuffed with it!

Bought a step down adaptor from Maplins, was £29.99. the adaptor has a UK plug for me to plug into the wall and a US plug on the adaptor.
