I have a power supply rated for 12VDC @ 5A I've been using to power some of my pedals. Can the HD500 run at 12V safely? I assume all the sensitive digital components are running off a much lower internally regulated voltage than the 9VDC that the stock supply gives it, but best to make sure before plugging it in...

I wouldn't recommend it.  It's not worth taking the chance of frying a $500 piece of equipment.  You can get away with more amperage in the power supply because the unit will only draw what it needs but voltage doesn't work like that.
