Hi James

When using the B135 sst2 as a preamp, is it possible to turn off the poweramp section?

Sam

Hi Sam

No sorry that is not possible - it would be using very little power though as it is sitting at idle.

Thanks for the answear :)

I have measured the power usage, and it was about 65-70w at idle. When I switch the buttons at the rear panel to separate, would the idle state consumption go further down?

That sounds right.

Looking at the specs for the cubed series -

B135³ integrated amp listed at ≤ 70W at idle

2.5B³ power amp listed at ≤ 40W at idle

- I would think that the power amp section may be consuming ~ 40W at idle above what would be the idle power consumption of the stand-alone BP17³ preamplifier? (specs not yet available for BP17³ preamplifier)
