I have a Maplin power supply for my rDAC and you can set the polarity. I've checked it's correct for my rDAC but what if I got it the wrong way around? Would it damage it ?

Sony BDPS370 / YouView ->Yamaha RXV1065-> Pana TH42PX80B plasma.

If the rDAC doesn't have diode protection, yes you will damage it.

Best check with a multi-meter if you are not sure.
