    Also, i found this pic i had taken of when I measured the power draw of the M9 using the TrueTone mA Meter. Also note that I was powering the M9 via the CS12 unit's Power Tap #11, which per the pic in my last post, is a DC output type.

    I must've read those same threads. My M9 has been easily powered by my One Spot (with the L6 adapter plug) for a few years.

    I owned an M9 for a couple years, up to Year 2020. I also own a Truetone mA Meter. I used the mA Meter to measure the power draw of the M9. Power draw of the M9 was 575 milliamps.

    While the power adaptor that comes stock with the Line 6 M9 is an AC output type, I found a couple sources indicating that the M9 can be powered by a more typical, DC output power adaptor. The first is a thread on the Line 6 Community Support Forum where someone says this is possible because the M9 has a AC to DC rectifier in line right after the power input jack. Here's the link to that thread: https://line6.com/support/topic/2659...ents-ac-vs-dc/

    The 2nd source indicating this is the owner's manual for my TrueTone CS12 isolated power supply unit. See attached pic of Pages 3 and 4. Page 4 has a note saying that the M9 can be powered by CS12 power taps #10 and #11. The diagram of those Power Taps on the prior page labels those power taps as DC type.

    I did in fact successfully power my M9 via DC power tap on the CS12 for awhile. I decided to sell the M9 last year.

    According to a post on TGP: At 9V DC Line6 M9 draws approx. 600mA, when powered with 12V DC it draws 480mA and at 15V DC the current is 430mA

    I think that’s the trouble. There are differing reports of how much it draws. I’d be leery of overdrawing the joyo power supply.

    This thing would answer your question.

    I know how much 2 amps is.
    I was razzing you.

    That's only 2 amps. Hardly all of it.

    Holy freakin’ Jim-Bob! That’s not just a lot of current; that’s just about all of it.

    i believe the power supply is the px2, which is 2000mA

    Try a current doubler on the two 500ma outputs.

    But that still doesn’t tell us how much current the M9 draws at 9 volts. I suspect it will be more than 500 mA.

    That should work fine. Line 6's polarity is reverse of everyone else's, so you might need a cable to reverse it.
