I’m wondering what the pros and cons are of simply putting a Bartók in standby mode, versus switching it off completely. I suspect the reasoning must be about what is less stressful for the electronic components : letting them continuously at more or less at the same temperature, versus having them alternating between cold and warm states. And a relay (or more) is also activated each time the unit is switched off.
I do listen to music in two-hour sessions (approximately) every morning and every evening on week days and for most of the day on weekends. I’m really perplexed about this issue. I’d like — of course — my unit to stay healthy for as long as possible and I’m wondering what would be the best option in order to minimise the stress upon the electronic components and the relays :
- letting the unit always in sleep mode while not listnening ;
- always switching it off ;
- switching it off from time to time — if so, at what interval ? Maybe it depends on the ambient temperature ?
Thank you very much in advance.
PS : Unless it’s me who didn’t find it, there isn’t, in Mosaic, the possibility to switch OFF Bartók, as there used to be in the dedicated app. Maybe it’s an omission ? On purpose ? Maybe it could be added ? [Should I put this question/suggestion elsewhere ?]
