Forgive me I am fairly new to this forum/community and I’m sure this topic has been covered countless times before but I can’t find anything specifically about it. I posted the note below in reply to someone on another thread who was concerned about their equipment getting overly hot and then thought I would start a new topic on the subject. If this Is all somewhere else I’d be grateful to be pointed there if someone could do that. Many thanks
“I have had various different combinations of Naim equipment for almost 40 years and always kept it turned on. At the weekend I had a new NAC 282 installed by a highly reputable dealer who told me that there’s no reason to leave it on and that I should turn off the power amps (135s) and the HiCap when I’m not using them. Even Naim’s advice on this is somewhat ambiguous in my research.
- Leave on because it will improve the sound
- Turn off in case of a power surge and to extend life
(To say nothing of the environmental concern of ‘wasting’ energy of course)
Would appreciate other users thoughts on this subject”
