When I turn off my amp, I let the music continue playing until its gone from my HP before I turn off my source. My thinking is this helps drain the power caps of charge but what do I know.

I'm very nervous with my setup now after blowing my HE-6 drivers twice. The first time I accidentally turned of my Lampi then turned it back on with the amps still on, there was a soft thud followed by dead quiet. To my frustration while I was at a friends house last week he turned off and on the DAC without any warning and blew a second hp.

Are you guys saying there nothing that can be done to stop this kind of thing from happening besides the precautionary measures you mentioned.

:blink: No matter what other components I use or don't, amps are always the last piece to get turned on and the first piece to get turned off.

Appreciate all the feedback. Yes I do have 10 ohm 10 watt resistor's which I will use with the Cayin. Will spend a week with the Rotel first  to get fully familiar with the sound & then try the Cayin. Will report back with my findings.

[/quote]I do the same thing.


Cradon, I've blown a set by the same way. My sympathies. I've just left the rig alone and just use auto on with the amps. The only thing I do is turn the volume down before turning the DAC off. But if you have a nasty spike on turn on, I'd disconnect the cans after turning off.

or just leave the dac on.  my blue circle dac does not have an on/off switch -- it has basically been on for about 5 years with a couple exceptions of being unplugged to move things around the rack.  unless it is a tube dac not sure i see a reason for turning it off

:sigh: I'd offer to stop by but listed airfares are killing me.
