Thanks for the link and confirming that there are no ill-effects to leaving the unit powered on. Isn't it divine when the music sounds so natural? Sometimes I keep wondering what benefits I would achieve by upgrading to the Marantz SA-11S2. Had my lens replaced in February this year after it failed to read 2 single layer SACDs
Even I am not an expert and was wondering. Hence the question. I switch my machine on/off just once a day. But that was not the point. The point was leaving it on makes the music sounding so natural. I am at a loss of words here. All I can say is, when I switch it on and play the music, it does not distract me much from the work I am doing at hand. But if I play some music on it when it is left powered on, the music simply grabs my attention and distracts me from doing any work that I have at my hand. I simply have to stop the player or stop my work. The music becomes so engrossing. Don't know why, or the science behind it (capacitor charging, etc)...but it happens. Believe it or not.
