I have a Sonos Connect connected to an amp (more accurately a pair of active studio monitors, but effectively the same). Every time I start playing music for that room I need switch the power socket on for the multiplug that they're powered from. Other people may have amps that auto switch on when they detect an input signal but that's not an option for me.
I would have thought its fairly common issue but I'm really struggling to find a solution.
There's this discontinued product, the Parasound SCAMP:
(Sorry, this forum won't let me post clickable links until I've posted 3 times!)
Which while being on ebay is expensive, but more importantly the wrong voltage (and ideally would be better with kettle style power outputs, or at least UK sockets).
I also found this, the ST-ACR2:
But I have no idea how to hook this up, and even if I could I'd up up which a bunch of exposed wires on the shelf.
Can anyone guide me to an elegant solution? I know flipping a switch on (and remembering to turn it off again) isn't the biggest hardship in the world but I'm trying to get a simple and seamless system as possible running, especially for other people to use when I'm not there.
