Standby Setting

Provides two menus: Standby Mode and Auto-Standby.

Standby Mode can be set to ECO to reduce the standby consumption to less than 0.5W, but only allows the SPA25 to wake from the analogue and digital inputs, or Normal which also allows the SPA25 to wake from streaming and the PC/MAC input.

The SPA25 is classified as a HiNA (high-network availability) product. If no audio stream signal is detected for 20 minutes the unit will automatically go into network standby mode, in which the power consumption of the device is <6W. The unit will exit from network standby mode when audio streaming is detected.

Auto-Standby automatically switches the SPA25 to standby if there is no user interaction or audio from the current source for a specified delay: Never, 60 Minutes, 40 Minutes, or 20 Minutes.

Note: The Auto-Standby function will be disabled if the network has not been set up.
