I'm moving to France and my Artcessories USB Phono Plus v2 is 110-60 only. Can anyone recommend another Phono pre-amp I can use that is commonly used in Europe?
Thanks!

From the manual:
"The USB Phono Plus operates from any external power source that provides 150mA or more @ 7 Volts to 12 Volts DC (either polarity at the tip will work with our unit) or 9 Volts to 12 Volts AC.
The USB To Computer connector is USB 2.0 compliant and should be used to connect directly to one of the USB connections on your computer. This connection also powers the USB circuitry inside the USB Phono Plus and will power the whole product if no other power source is available."

Now all you need is to be sure the plug of the new transformer you buy is the right size. You might want to bring the US transformer along (the "wall wart") as a reference. The current output should be a minimum of 150 milliAmps, but it is fine to greatly exceed that if such transformers happen to be easier to find.

I'm not sure if your local Radio Shack would have such a thing but I would think that one of the provided plugs of this universal transformer will most likely work, especially since yours is so flexible it doesn't even care what the polarity of the plug is (meaning whether the outer shield is positive or negative in relation to the center pin):
