Are you sure adapter is dead because it is just a transformer that rarely goes bad? Have you checked thoroughly?

Borrow a DMM and check the o/p on the output pin on the adapter first.
The adapter is a AC-AC adapter so the DAC is doing a AC-DC rectification internally
Having said that, the DAC should have powered on with 12V+ DC adapters also ..
You should definitely check the o/p on the current adapter though

If you meant white light comes up with original adapter then contact Schiit support because it may not be adapter then.

Actually i have no idea to test all these. I have never done these before.
I will be forever grateful to all of you if you can find me a compatible adapter from here.


Thankyou so much to all of you

For time being, do not do any such experiments :) then or you may end up damaging the unit.

The unit requires 16VAC.
Don't use a DC adapter.

Your adapter outputs 16V AC voltage. Your DAC expects AC voltage from the adapter, not DC. This means that there is AC to DC rectification happening within the DAC. So there's no use trying 9V or 12V DC adapters.

Please get yourself a cheap digital multimeter (~Rs 500-550). It always comes in handy. You can check whether your adapter is giving out 16V AC or not.

Since the white light comes on it looks like the DAC is receiving power from the adapter.
