Will the USB host port be turned off when the SHD is turned off?

If so, the 5v out could be used to control this this power strip or boosted to 12v to be used as a trigger with a 12v usb boost cable like this. Some amplifiers might even trigger with 5vdc and not require the boost cable.

Hey, I've been using the SHD for the past few days and I don't believe it can actually be turned off without manually flipping the power switch on the back of the unit. I couldn't find any mention of an ability to power off in the user manual, either.

Dear Both

Currently the way to turn off the SHD is indeed via the rear. We'll soon add ability to put the system in standby mode (all analog out turned off / Front panel turned off).

when you do this can you make sure that the usb port is powered down while in standby so that it can be used as a trigger to turn on amps?

Thanks
