Hi,

I'm looking for a amp with auto on, e.g. when I'm turning on our tv.

My needs are streaming, bluetooth, radio and lines in for tv and a turntable.

The only one I did find is NAD Amp1, but are there othere alternatives?

Thanks...

there are many that will do this one way or another, 12volt triggers or eArc over HDMI,it mostly found in surround receivers or speakers such as Sonos
as there in a constant state of somewhat on.

so pioneer Yamaha and the other usual suspects. 2 channel amps i personally don't know of any

little OFF topic, theers is many who turn OFF aut.

What you can get is (i know it might not be what you are looking for) active studio monitors they turn on aut (not all do)

Another way to do this in a similar way is to use a Logitech Universal Remote that let's you define 'activities' as Logitech calls them. You do need an amp with a remote control for this to work.

Example. We have an activity called TV. When I choose that, the TV powers up, switches to Digital, our network stereo receiver powers up, switches to optical input 1 (connected to the TV). If I want to listen to our record player I choose the activity Phono. The TV powers down and the receiver switches to Phono.

Shutting down is also very easy. You simply switch of the activity on your remote and everything that was on in the activity powers down.

Our Yamaha R-N602 network stereo receiver automatically powers up and down when I use Airplay for streaming. That works separately from the Logitech remote.

Thanks. A universal remote might be the answer, but I need to do it all more user friendly for my wife and kids.

The easiest way would to have an amp we never should turn on or off.

@iMark: Will the Yamaha R-N602 turn on automatically when detecting digital input from e.g. the tv?
