View Full Version : amp question
05-22-2002, 02:43 PM
i just bought a Parasound HCA-855 amp but it doesn't have an auto on feature. Is it wise to adapt its 3 prong power connector to my H/K 320 switched power receptacle? Should i just leave the amp on 24/7? i also recently purchased a universal touchscreen remote and it would suck to still have to get up and turn on the amp.:)

Don't plug the amp into your receiver. Those outlets are for low-power devices like CD players and such. Leaving the amp on all the time isn't a problem, but your best bet would be to pick up a power conditioner like a Monster Power unit which has the auto power-on feature (plus you get could protection and filtration for your gear).

on my amp the manufactor aragon recomends that you dont plug the amp into power condishioners, just straight into the power reseptacle. i dont know if it is for all amps though, check your manufactor to see.
