The current month promotion (Dirac unit + twin plate amps at a good discount) is very tempting for my nearfield setup (2.1, passive xover on mains).

For me, the outboard Dirac box is a much better answer than software, because with software I'd have to remember to turn off the correction to use headphones. With the outboard box. However, I just don't like to leave things drawing power when they're not in use. So I'd have to turn the the Dirac box and the PWR-ICE amps on/off, in this case probably via a switched power strip I'd operate with my toe. Turned on/off with a power strip, with all three components (Dirac digital I/O box + two PWR-ICE amps) turning on/off more or less simultaneously, will I get any turn on/off thump?

@DS21,

Thanks for your interest in this configuration!

Based on the fact that neither the DDRC-22 nor PWR-ICE have any thump, we don't see any reason why there would be one once combined. However, just to confirm, we'll build a setup here to make a case. We should be able to get back to you by tomorrow/early next week with some feedback. Sounds good?
