Can you safely use a universal AC adaptor set at 10V 300mA for a portable CD player that requires 4.5V 700mA?

Gary, If you do this you are going to toast your CD player. I suppose you are thinking because the VA that it will be ok. It won't.

Your CD is not desinged to handle the higher voltage . This is really no different that taking a 120 volt microwave and trying to plug it into 240 volt source; and I know you wouldn't want to do that. The only difference here is amps for household stuff and milliamps for your electronics. Same result though; you get to go and get a new one.

The best way to control a portable DVD player without a remote is with the built-in controls. You can also purchase a universal remote.

The first portable CD players hit the market in the same year that CDs were launched. Among others, Sony had a portable player that came with a mains power adaptor and an optional battery pack for use away from a mains supply. The price was in the region of $400 / £250 and was in excess of twice the price of a static player at the time.
