I'm in Europe and have 220 / 120 V adapter. It is 50W. Will a 50W converter be enough for this amp?

Watts are watts. Voltage X Amperage = Wattage. Example: Apple wanted to make a proprietary 20W adapter for use with their MagSafe wireless charger at full 15W speed on the iPhone 12 series, but the adapter should really be called a 19.98W adapter. Marketing is sneaky from Apple. The only variation that will charge at 15W is if you use an adapter capable of 9V @ 2.22A = 19.98W. The reason it only does 15W is from a standard 25% thermal loss. The fact that you can’t use a standard adapter that equals 20W on the dot is their way of saying “Fuck you. Now you have to buy both products.” Fortunately their are several other companies that offer the adapter for 20-40% cheaper, and take up a smaller footprint using Gallium Nitride instead of Silicon.
