    Lumin X1 Power Supply Question

    Should X1 owners leave the power supply (and hence the power to the streamer) on all the time, even when not in use?

    In summer, when it's really hot, I turn it off.

    I think most users leave it on and use the Idle Sleep function.

    When it is time to stop listening I pause the song, and turn off the amps. For both my S1 and X1, I always leave them on.

    Thanks. The power supply is a bit warm but I guess that’s okay?

    I did the same thing for my previous A1 for about 2 years without issues.

    Current X1 for about 6 months and still okay

    Yes I think it is normal..!!! In my case I have A1 and it is ON since one year now without problems.

    I always leave the Power supply ON and idle after my daily listening.

    When I’m done listening, I clear the music list and the unit goes to “sleep”. I leave the PS on all the time with both the S1 (previously) and X1.

    There are two toroidal transformers inside any Lumin X1 / U1 / S1 / A1 / T1 LPS. They do get warm normally.

    I being energy conscious ($$$) I turn off the X1 along with my other equipment when not in use. I mean it does have a power supply with a on/off button?
