Hi pros, I have a DBX 160A and I was wondering if leaving the unit on all the time (no power switch) is not going to wear it down. I was thinking in investing in a rack power module for easy on/off.
anyone?

Geez, I don't think it really matters. The unit doesn't run that hot. I suppose there are incandescent meter lights, aren't there?

Hope this is helpful.

Thanks for your input GM and where.
Yes this is not the 160 VU but the one with the LEDs.
Don't know why I am always scrupulous to leave it all on all the time.

Cool. I had wondered the same thing about my dbx 160XT.
