AC adapter for use with Burson Audio HA-1060DS DAC/Headphone amplifier

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello all.


Having just received my new Burson HA-1060DS in the post, I have suddenly realised that it's got a 2-pin AC plug instead of a UK 3-pin.


Obviously, I'll need to find an adapter. My question is: what kind should I buy, and which one is safest/best for the Burson amp? I don't want to plug in this £400 piece of kit for the first time and blow it up!


Thanks in advance for any help.

If you are definately keeping it just cut the plug of and replace with a 3 pin UK plug. Black lead is live in the US if I remember correctly.

An AC Power Adapter is an electronic device which produces a specific direct current from the mains with an Alternating Current (AC). Although actually a power supply it is popularly known as an AC Power Adapter or AC Adapter. Laptops along with most other portable devices use Direct Current (DC), this also applies to rechargeable batteries which power laptops. Direct Current has a constant flow of electric charge in one direction and flows from low to high potential. Connecting a laptop to AC is unsuitable and dangerous due to the varying magnitude and direction of the current, which can cause an internal component to fail and even result in fire.

This is a particular design of a power adapter which accepts DC input and output DC voltage required to power a laptop. Instead of a standard plug for a wall socket, these have a specific cable that plugs in the cigarette lighter. The 12V DC supplied through the cigarette lighter socket is converted to provide a different DC voltage. This power adapter can also be used in other vehicles with similar sockets i.e. Vans, trucks and even boats. Air or airplane universal ac adapter work in the same way.
