I leave a couple of DACs and a couple of media-centric PC's running continuously. Before @Eidie jumps all over me - I have solar and put more back into the grid that I take out most days :)

Not the place to debate these. Your contributions are well appreciated.. it remains leaving a DAC on, is wasteful while serving no purpose.

It means I don't have to wait 5 minutes for the clock to come up to temp each time

Green morality judgments are as far as I am concerned political talk and I will say I want zero of that nature discussion.

My MOTU M2 has been on continuously for nearly a year, and other than a little male-pattern baldness and a touch of ED now and again I've suffered no ill effects....

Lol - best comment in a long time… nothing to worry about as you say !
