    Preamp(s) and phonostage left on 24/7.

    Power amps switched on when needed and off when finished (unless I forget, and they are left on overnight ).

    Sources switched on when needed (CD player is left in standby mode).
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I turn the active speakers to standby, so in terms of the power amps they are turned off. The father of a friend of mine used to leave his amp all the time and did so for many years. I repaired it for him once and the issue was just some of the smaller transistors had started to fail. There was brown heat marks on the pcb around them. When I mentioned it to my friend he said the amp was on for around 12 years.
