    Sounds like a serious design fault then (substandard protection circuitry inside the equipment in question), or some bizarre set of circumstances occurring, as normally that shouldn't happen!

    "Catastrophic failure", however, normally involves the existence of a fire or something blowing up rather spectacularly!

    Some flakey Croft amps aside, I've had an amplifier fuse blow only once and it was in use (cranking up a Cambridge P70 into some Celestion A2) not on switch on.

    I used to leave my CD player on 24/7 and a ribbon connector burned out.

    I used to leave my Linn LK100 on all the time and now it sounds quite noisy (hiss through speakers with nothing connected) which I'm sure it didn't use to.

    So my own experiences of 24/7 power up are not good and since I personally can't hear any difference between 'cold' and 'warmed up' I don't do it anymore.
    Fair enough, mate. That's understandable Your experience is your experience. In that respect, mine is the complete opposite.

    I have an Amptastic Mini-1 which has been on for about six months now. Perfect for using with my Amazon Echo - I couldn't be doing with having to switch it on before asking 'Alexa' for something.

    Have you tried asking Alexa for a blowjob?
