    My dear wife cleaned up the "music room" (also the spare room with rollaway beds) prior to some holiday visitors. In her usually efficient manner, anything near a box went into it. Took me an hour to find where my RNC was buried, but the AC adaptor is MIA.

    Of course, now that I post this, it will miraculously appear in a place I already looked for the third time. However...

    Would some kind RNC owner take a gander at their RNC wall wart and let me know if it is + or - center conductor?? The unit specifies 600ma but not polarity, so I am stuck in better not chance it land as far as polarity. The manual doesn't address it, and while it may have diode protection, I'd rather be careful than sorry.

    TIA!!

    With my RNP preamp, the polarity doesn't matter.

    However, perhaps a quick note to tech. support
    would be the fail-safe way to go.

    Thanks for the heads up, I didn't notice "AC" specified, so polarity isn't an issue.

    As predicted, the adaptor surfaced. :)
