For the longest time I have used this amp but unfortunately I had it always on as it fed my desktop speakers.
Now after a few minutes it makes a horrible high pitched sound (Even with the gain off) and shows the word PROTECT on the screen and it shuts off.
Also the pixels has a horrible burn in so…
1) Turn it of when not using it
2) Do not use gain all the time
3) Turn the screen off if you can
