A/C Power Supply Help

Electrically Challenged here.

We have a good time radio with CD player on the boat. It runs on 8 D cell batteries or a 110 power adapter. The unit is no longer available and I have not been able find info on the a/c adapter, which is now in the possession of Davey Jones. The unit works well on batteries but not much longevity when using the CD player. I have tried several 12 V power supplies, which I have, ranging from 500 milliamp to 2 amps output. They all work the radio but none seem to have the power to turn the CD player. There is a sticker on the unit indicating that the CD requires a certain constant power in order to prevent skipping.

Does anyone know how many amps 8 D cells produce? Is it simply a matter of choosing an A/C adapter with the same Amp output of the batteries?
