The B model revision of the 8050 added what? I imagine the standby power reduction, but what else was changed? There is a rather substantial price difference. How much power does the power saving save per year in Kwhrs? That would be useful to know. Here in California, Electricity costs are very high 18 cents per Kwhr. Among the highest in the world, although Palm Springs is way more, and Long Island new york is super high too. It probably adds up to a lot of money.

Hi,

B revision introduced the ISS feature, no other changes were made.

Idle power consumption of a 8050 speaker is about 10 W, so assuming that you keep two speakers ON for 24/7/365, they will consume approx. 175 kWh. When multiplying that with 18 cents, you get approx. $32.

With ISS enabled, power consumption will be reduced to less than 0.5 W which adds up to approx. $1 per year.
