How Important is Wattage on a 2600 Power Adapter?

Thanks, but put simply can I use a supply that's I/P: 120V 60Hz, O/P: 9VAC 500 mA, without it stating the input wattage on it? I've seen several PS state different wattages on them... Thanks again.

Definitely not a good idea - even if it works, you will almost certainly blow the filter capacitor and the 7805 regulator in a very short time.
The 2600 requires a DC power supply not an AC one like the one you are talking about. I have heard that the system will power up with an AC supply, but it's probably not a good idea to do that.
