You'll kindly pardon my ignorance here, but I need a hand configuring the use of the remote trigger on my Parasound 1205A amp. Receiver in use is a Yamaha 795a; it, of course, has no remote trigger facility. I vaguely recall recently reading a post in which a fellow had used some sort of of AC/DC converter. He plugged the AC end into a switched outlet on the back of his receiver, then scissored off the DC end and screwed the two wires (+/+, -/-) to the amp's trigger terminal. Sound correct, and if so, can anyone point me to the proper part? Rat Shack hadn't a clue what I was after today. Also, can it possibly be as simple as using the sort of power pack that's routinely provided with cordless phones? I've got one handy that reads on the rear: "Input: 120VAC 60HZ 12W Output: 9VDC 500mA" If I was to snip off the connector on the DC end and split the two wires, connecting them to the 1205's screw-type terminals, might this do the trick? And how do I know which is positive and which is negative (two black wires, one with a white stripe; I assume this is positive). Thanks for any help you may offer, and don't worry, gang. I'm not going to do anything stupid before I've got a better idea of how this works. Cheers! DS.
