Should I or should I not powerdown my 8040 everyday?

As the title says, I'm wondering if it's better to leave them on or should i power them off every time I leave the studio. usually I lave my gear running, but I'm getting worried that this might not be a good idea in the long run.

So asking the Guru's here (and hopefully maybe an actual Genelec Tech could chime in)

Are the 8040's designed to be left running continuously?

Hi,

All Genelec speakers are designed to run 24/7. Of course if you want to think about the ecological effects of added electricity consumption, you might want to consider turning them off when non needed. 8040B (and other newer Genelec models) include an intelligent signal sensing function which does this for you automatically. :)

Perfect thank you very much. In Quebec we are champions of clean energy or well close to clean (Hydro electricity) But yeah I get you there. Is the frequency response of the B versions the same as the A?

No acoustical changes has been done so yes.
