Since you made that face/smilie, I'm assuming it's an easy answer? Mind sharing ^_^

Huh? I use a Asus DX. But the thing is, I want to know the reasoning behind turning on your speakers last. To put my mind at ease X.x

I think it is more of a *pop* than a true surge. It's not that the current will fry the amp, but that the loud pop could damage your speakers. That's what I would be afraid of anyways. I always turn my volume to zero on my stereo before connecting or disconnecting anything for that reason.

Haha thanks Still looking for a few more responses to this.

Btw, working out after you eat to negate the massive calories you intake? Or is intaking massive amounts of calories to workout?

Yeah, but then the question is, do I have to wait for my computer to be completely booted into Windows before I turn my speakers on? Or is it just after I turn on my computer, then I can turn on my speakers.

I used to run my audio out into my Amp 24/7, left the Amp on all the time unless I was leaving the house for more than a day.

As long as you make sure it's not turned up full whack before you turn the PC on, you should be perfectly fine. The only thing it'll really do is the pop that's mentioned, if it's up too loud, it's the audio signal travelling through it initially that does that, much like playing an audio tape back in the day with it turned up.

My brother has his desktop speakers on pretty much 24/7 aswell, so the audio's there all the time.
Just make it a habit to turn keep that volume at the right position.
