I've heard and read on the net that Amps should be plugged directly into the wall and not into any type of surge protector because it limits their performance. I've also read on that same site that amps should be left on 24/7 so that the Capacitors, JFETS, and Mosfets stay completely charged up. Some of the posters even pointed to Manufacturers websites like OdysseyAudio and SimAudio where they state that it could take hours and sometimes days before and amp could sound its best. So it should just be left on. I just wondered what everyones opinion was on these two subjects. Sorry if these issues have already been beaten to death.
