As long as the voltage is correct and the MINIMUM current is adhered to you will be fine.
The 2.08Amp supply is the one that FLEX supplies with the Maestro but I have had several Audio reports of a "FAN" noise when I use the radio with the original FLEX power supply using the Maestro. 
If you want to protect the Maestro better then put a 2 AMP inline fuse in the power cord and use what ever 10 to 15 Volt DC power source you have as long as it is quite as far as RFI noise goes and at least 2 AMP's of current.

Use the MW one that is rated at 12v@2.08a
