    hi folks, just a quickie

    Various manufacturers suggest that their equipment is left powered up 24/7.

    Would it be the same for Arcam and the AVR300? i know the unit runs fairly hot (but i have never heard the fan) so i wasnt sure whether it would be safe etc

    Regards

    I switch mine to standby when not in use, this should be sufficient to keep a trickle current running through it whilst not give the national grid anything to worrry about.

    Likewise, I leave mine on standby. This probably will increase the life of the amp (based on the fact that the life of individual components is measured in terms of on-time), but also consumes less electricity so is more environmentally friendly.
