Default Switching inputs on Aleph 5


I want to switch inputs on my Aleph 5 monoblocks between xlr and rca. Some questions: What happens if both xlr and rca is connected, will using one input while the other is connected(and not active) work. What if for some reason both is active, is this harmful?
If one is using relays to switch between the two. Must I turn the amplifier off first to avoid damage to amplifier or speakers?

The best explanation I've found is on page ten of the owners manual at the passlabs site. I could repeat Nelson's words but I believe a link to the pdf will hopefully be adequate.

Alephs are pretty immune to swithing effects. Usually there is no
reason to turn off the amp while switching inputs - I never do,
and I've never lost a speaker.
