QUESTION ON POWER MANAGEMENT OF 8250A SPEAKERS

QUESTION ON POWER MANAGEMENT OF 8250A SPEAKERS

My question may be too basic for this forum but have not found any answer from documentation. Namely I recently bought 8250A speakers to my living room. Installation and DSP calibration was made by professional as per the dealer in agreed manner.

However, I am wondering what should I do with the power controls with my speakers. The green led is constantly on as I have not gone and switched the main power off from speakers for night. I am wondering if there should be any automatic power management on these speakers to shut down the power and even the led indicator light automatically after I have not used my speakers for some time (and switched the power off from AV source (Marantz NR1605). Is there a specific setup I should change to the speakers to have the power off to happen automatically? Or any other advices as I am skeptical if it is proper to keep power on all the time. :?:

Hi,

8250A do not have automatic power management. They have normal power switch on the back side of the speaker. It doesn't cause any harm (other then slightly larger electrical bill) to have the on all the time.
