Hey guys, I just got a a Panamax 5400PM and I like it. The question I have is I never had something like this before. I have tons of components including a new Yamaha 2010BL receiver (love it too). Is the Panamax supposed to be on all the time? Running 24/7? does it consume lots of energy if the component is off?

I've had my Panamax for close to 16 (?) maybe more years (I used it with my C-Band satellite system and A/V system) and it's never been off. Leave it on!

I just bought a 5300 and have no intentions of turning it off. Panamax says there is no need to.

I have a 5400, two belkin pure av hf60s and two apc's ( ht10/ht15 )

All have been running for years, never off. I have an old yammy v663 that was unplugged for a few years. I just hooked it up a few weeks ago directly to the wall for the kids media area. When I moved some equip around, I installed a apc ht10 a week afterwards, which I then plugged the 663 in. It made a noticeable difference in audio quality immediately.

It's kind of weird because for years all of my equipment has been plugged into one of these conditioners new from the box. Hearing the 663 years later sourced from the wall, then back into the apc was very much noticeable.
