I am really interested in the Sprout 100. I am looking to complete a fairly simple set up: a nice old Technics linear tracking record player; an NAD FM tuner; a optical output from a tv; and a pair of ELAC bookshelf speakers.
It looks like the Sprout 100 has an automatic standby (low power consumption) mode. Does it automatically activate to the input from the optical source when I turn on the TV? Since we would typically watch tv in the evening for an hour or so, it would be nice to be able to have it come on with the tv, instead of having to use the separate remote.
For reference to those of you younger folks, when I was a kid, I had to get up and walk to the tv, and back (uphill both ways), just to change the channel. I’m lazy now.
