Re: [Harp-L] Urgent advice needed ART Tube MP

It doesn't matter if the AC adaptor is rated for more "mA" than the device it is 
powering, in fact it's a good thing. The device only draws current, current 
isn't forced into it. So, as long as the voltage and polarity are correct (check 
icon at adaptor tip) you are good to go. There may be hum problems with cheap, 
unregulated supplies causing hum with some devices, no hum, no worries.

HI all
Have just received this unit by courier and upon opening the box found that 
there is no AC adapter in there!Just the unit itself.
The specs say:
Power requirements:9 volts A.C@ 700ma(typ)

        I have a digitech adapter whose specs are:
9 VAC, 1.3A
            Can I use this with the ART?
Or failing that ,is it relatively easy to buy a universal one at an electronics 
            I bought it new over the net from a local dealer but he has turned 
out to be a real plonker...took 6 weeks to get to me.As i want to use the unit 
pretty soon i'd rather avoid dealing with him again and just use what i've got 
(the Digitech adaptor)or buy something suitable.
