How frequently and how many times to unplug interconnects? And occasional swtiching off?
Posted by: JimDog on 28 December 2018
I understand that one should occasionally unplug interconnects and speaker cables and plug them back in several times in order to clean and refresh the contact between metal plugs and sockets.
1. How often should I do this?
2. How many times should I unplug and replug in a row to clean the contacts?
3. I also understand that it is desireable occasionally to switch off Naim boxes. As I must switch off the boxes in order to perform the above steps, will that do it? (In addition, I should switch the boxes off when lightening is forecast.)
4. And is it a good idea to switch off the system when on holiday? This will save energy and reduce the chance of a fire, but will it also be good for long term SQ to give the amps an occasional 'rest' - or does it have no long term effect on SQ?
