As a matter of interest, do you keep the AMS35i switched on ready, or do you only fire it up when you want to use it? If so do you have to wait a while before it comes into its own? Is it uncomfortble in your listening room during thos hot summer evenings?
The AMS35i does not have a "standby" mode, it's either on or off. When on, it's drawing around 330W from the mains.....this means it only gets switched on when in use, but it takes little more than 20-30 mins to heat up (it doesn't sound bad when cold). I've said it before, but this is the best amp I've heard under £10k.
I live in a drafty old house (Ireland - what hot Summer evenings?) with big rooms and high ceilings, so it's never a problem.
In case you haven't seen this, it makes interesting reading:
