    Off, the TDA1541A runs hot! I have a couple of spares...

    Not as precious about the other gear going off, but if am not likely to use it for the day then off it goes. Jez changed my view on this one...

    I have also changed my ways and everything is switched off when not in use. I'm pretty confident I can't tell the difference.

    I would like to sneak into the house of someone who leaves everything on all the time and switch it off, give it a few hours and switch it back on again. Then secretly observe to see if they notice any difference when they come and sit down to listen. Would they be up from their seat after the first few bars of music, checking connections etc to find out why sound quality is not as expected? Or would they, as I'd expect, sit and listen quite happily?

    I worked for some time in IT and the forbidden thing was to turn off devices, whilst not identical they share types of components.

    The worst were routers invariably if you were in a clients premises and turned the router off it would not reboot.

    I leave everything on unless it has valves in it.

    I would have thought that anything that gets warm needs to be switched off. All off at mine except the CD player, as recommended by Densen.

    Jez said it should all be turned off, but was happy for folk to leave things on as it provided work for him.

    This subject has been done to death. I believe the consensus was to turn it all off because it saves the life of the components and the gear takes only 20 minutes or so to come up to working temperature. If I'm doing a demo, I prefer to get the system running for 20 - 30 minutes before but that's all it takes.

    I turn everything off except the router, because that is a pita to get connected again.
