Can you leave your preamp on all the time?
I guess I could, but I think I’ll just follow your recommendation of Amps: first off, last on, when I turn the system on in the morning and off in the evening (so leaving the pre-amp on all day too).
Or do you think daily on/off of the amps is a bit excessive? Just looked up my marantz pre-amp (7702mkii) and it’s 60w when on, a bit higher than I was expecting. If I leave the amps on 24/7 and just turn the pre-amp on and off when necessary (it doesn’t seem to produce any noise when turning on and off), does that add any extra wear on the amps?
