I'd be curious to know how much power those amps draw while while idle. Got a Kill-a-Watt handy?

I wonder how much worse it is than the regular 'vampire loss' that electronic equipment in general, and audio gear in particular, draws?

I was very surprised to take some power readings from my Lexicon AVR... About 40 watts just on standby! 80 watts turned on but idle, and about 100 to 200 watts (dynamic) for some pretty good listening levels.

I try to turn my HK 630 off whenever I am not using it. It gets pretty hot even at idle.
