The Radio Shack "M" plug fits the 680 pretty snugly. But, visually inspecting the inside diameter, it still seems that the "M" is a larger inside diameter than the plug that came with the unit. Could just be because of the split in the stock plug, not sure. Do they make plugs with smaller inside diameter than the 2.1mm that the "M" plug is?

So it seems like 2.1mm ID is probably the correct size if you can find the split connector, otherwise going with a standard 2.5mm plug is probably the way to go.

Ted,
the tip you made me works on both my P2 & my 680
I ordered it that way because I am using my P2 wallwart
because the one that came with my 680 didn't work
and I'm STILL waiting for a replacement  >:(

OK, took the deck to Radio Shack tonight. The "M" plug (5.5 OD, 2.1 ID) was definitely the closest they have. The "M" plug I have for my EAA seems to work well in testing at home. Snug fit, seems to fit very similar to the stock plug. So as far as the Rat Shack plugs I think that is probably it.

Awesome. Thanks for sharing that. That confirms that it's OK to use a 9v wally DVD battery (which is what I have been using since I got mine).

On the M plug, "tip" should be +, correct?

I wonder...
Has anyone assembled, in one place, this type of data for the other popular portable pre-amps and recorders?

I have a good amount of information from equipment manuals, writen down on scraps of paper and floating around in my head.  I will make a point to post something soon......
