why would I use a night mode when my gear, the many gear I have has plenty of amp power. I have tons of amps rating from 200 wpc and higher and sunfire receiver, the latest TGR 401 that rates 200 wpc on all 7 channels and my least power is my already powerful pioneer elite sc 37 at 140 wpc which is already plenty of juice. I have emotiva amps, carver amps, and my electrostats and planars LOVE plenty of JUICE just to drive them, so MIDNIGHT mode is for cheap receivers or cheap systems and not for the BIG BOYS. why have a krell,mcintosh, b&k, parsound, rotel,adcom,outlaw,levinson and the like just to put your system on MIDNIGHT MODE? You won't find midnight mode in high end systems especially dedicated STEREO AUDIOPHILE systems. Definitely not on my many systems. The new sunfire subs and especially the flagship subs of paradigm is ear splitting LAW BREAKING SPL's and wattage that was designed for midnight modes.
