Electrostatic Discharge

HI!

I'm owner of a pair 1032b.

During the day in studio it seems like I'm having some electrostatic charge accumulated in my body,
so when I'm touching the amplifier to turn it off there is light electrostatic discharge
happens between me and amplifier.

Is it dangerous?

Thanks!

Best regards,
Alexander.

Hi Alexander,

Electronic discharge can be several thousands of volts, you should always ground yourself before touching to electronic devices.
