I'm in the process of putting my AMP5 in a box. I'd like to have switches to select the sources I want to connect. But I read on the mounting notice, and on this forum, that it is bad for the AMP to switch sources while it's on.
So I'd like to do the following: when I push a switch, power goes off for ~1s; source switching occurs .1s after pushing the button; then after the 1s delay has finished, the amp is turned on again.
A friend of mine told me that it may not be good either for the amp to have its power switch on or off for such a short time.
Should I go on with that project? mute the amp for 1s instead of de-powering it? Mix the sources instead of switching them?
