      This might seem like a dumb question but I would be grateful for any advice.

      I use my Beogram 4002 in the morning sometimes, the afternoon or the evening. I usually turn it off at the mains as I understand there are components in there that remain powered up all the time. I am causing more harm turning it off at the mains than if I just leave it switched on all the time and only switch it off at the mains if I am not going to use it for a few days?

        I would not bother turning it off at the mains daily or even a few days as this stresses components that were intended to have power on continuously such as the those in the power supply. I would only do it for extended vacations of weeks to protect from power surges. Using the 4002/4 models for almost 50 years this way without an issue.
