    Default Standby State of Your RPI Player

    What do people do when not listening through your rpi?

    Do you completely shut it down as I do and remove the power source or do you just keep it powered on 24/7?

    I'm guessing this is going to depend largely on what power source you are using but just wondered what others do?

    I switch mine on and off when using it (Katana/Shanti dual power supply).

    Havenít had any issues and the valve amp warming up is the actual bottle-neck to listening.

    A mainly digital setup with a musical amplifier and endearing 1970's speakers. A CD player that hardly ever gets used and a turntable that is good enough to remind my how enjoyable my old vinyl is. Some cables and things.

    Used to be but it's in an Ali digione case now so usually switch it off. I also have an on line switch so I don't have to unplug etc.
    The times it's been left on for several days it's been OK although case gets quite warm

    I switch mine off when at work and at night. Sat and Sun all day on.
    Mine is powered from a dual linear PS. No efficient SMPS.

    I use battery power, so switch it off when not in use, like the rest of my gear.
