Why? DACs burn hardly any power so just leave it on 24/7 if turning it off is too much of a burden. First-world problems. Yeesh.

i don’t understand why you feel a standby mode is important (if it is in fact something different than just powering down the whole unit via an on-off switch)?
even if the audio gd dac runs hot... so you just shut it down when you aren’t listening
what am i missing?
fwiw - denafrips dacs when plugged in to the wall socket, will show a standby l-e-d as 'on'... not sure what internal components are left running and active though...
I do not have any of these dacs and was just wondering what they did as far as heat swing from a cold start to running hot . also how long it takes to get to a full blossom sound , longevity of parts ? heat kills electronics but class A sound the best. I do not want to leave it on 24/7 so I was just looking for maybe an option in these r2r dacs as there is no details I see in the audio gd and the denafrips sites as I thought maybe the owners would chime in. thanks for the replies
