Question A Question for Mr. Pass (and all..)

Hi,

here is my question:
Why was the Aleph P and Fet 1 (or 2) build without a powerswitch ?
Is it something with the ideal temperature for the fets? Or just economic?
And, is there a ideal temperature for the amp, or is it vodoo to wait a time until the amp warm up? Some people are thinking it is better sound after warm up......



Kindest regards
Reinhard

My BZLS hasn't got one either; for all of the reasons above.
It is ON all day (And better sounding methinks)

I heard that this is so the Pass family cat has somewhere warm to sleep at night.

Is it like a modern day version of Ulysses and the Sirens? Once you hear the sound you cannot persuade yourself to get up and turn it off to eat, drink, and get on with your life?
