Stereo is warmed up.

I turned my stereo on Wednesday morning, and it has been on since then. Now it is Saturday night. Anyway, it has been a while since it has been continuously on for this long, and I just want to say that “It sounds fantastic.” Too bad leaving it on for days really runs up the electric bill. :)

    Not to mention all that damage to the environment due to global warming. You really need to work on reducing your carbon footprint.

    Is it a Class A amp?

    Yes, for the first twenty watts or so.

    Except if you live anywhere near California. We have had enough 'burn' for a while, but thanks anyway.

    I'm assuming you have two for 2 channel? That's 1200 watts of consumption. Kind of an expensive space heater...

    That is certainly true. I only do this in the winter since the stereo heats the house, so I don’t need to run the furnace.

    One for each 4 ohm speaker, two total, so the output is 1200 Watt per speaker, 2400 watts total. :)

    Anyway, they are off now until Friday morning. Then they will warm up all day for Friday night.
