I have returned to separates for two-channel for the first time in a long time and an old question has come up again. That is, since my pre-amp has no switched outlets (and they probably would not be heavy-duty enough anyway), what is the best way to manage turning the power amp off and on. Just leave it on all the time? I'm not against doing that but it seems to generate a lot of heat even when idling. The pre does have 12-Volt triggers, but there is nothing on the power amp to connect them to. I have a cheap Radio Shack "power controller" surge protector, but apparently the pre does not draw enough current to activate it. The power switch on the amp seems kind of cheesy, so I'm afraid if I switch it off and on all the time it will give trouble. Anybody know a good inexpensive solution?
