Have recently bought a set of 2.1 speakers with a remote control which only controls volume and bass. The woofer is situated below my desk and is difficult to access without crawling on the floor. The power on/off switch is located on the back of the woofer enclosure so is virtually inaccessible. Does the amplifier take any load when the computer is switched off? Is it safe to leave it switched on permanently? It would appear that this is the manufacturer's intention but there is nothing in the instructions to confirm this.
I found an email address on the manufacturer's web site so I posed the question to them. Yhis is their response. "It's safe just so as long as nothing spills on the woofer, you stated that it is under the desk, please I'd advise you not to keep any liquids on the desk so if you might topple the liquid it could leak to the woofer, just keep the area dry around the woofer from time to time. On the other hand if you do keep it on, you will get a big electricity bill but it is safe to keep it on if you want."
