Question for those who have lots of amp knowledge.
My Asgard says it has a relay that mutes the output for "10 seconds when turned on" and "immediately when turned off".
My main question is, should I play it safe and not plug in my headphone for 10 seconds and then unplug it before I turn it off? With my headphones plugged in, after about 10 seconds from start up, I can hear a light "pop" from the headphones and same with immediately after shut down. Not sure if that's normal, but I assume it is (wouldn't it be a huge "thump" if the relays weren't in place?) I really don't want to risk damaging my drivers, so I'm willing to play it safe if I need to.
I'm using my HD600. Also, watched the driver of my SRH840 when the relay ended and didn't see any movement, but could hear the light "pop" sound.
Overall, just a bit confused on how this works and what's considered "safe".
Thank you in advance!
