Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

Yu really do not want to be connecting /disconnecting anything while amps are turned on

Leaving the amps turned on while connecting anything in or out is a path to blown amps, speakers and preamps..
Particularly if using RCA connections.
Plus speaker wires really have a magic way of shorting when fiddling with them and the amp is turned while doing so.

I have found leaving equipment turned on 24/7 to be great. But I DO turn them off when I move IC, speaker wires and such.
Turning them off for a few minutes really does not lose the always on magic. IMO/hearing of the results.
