Does anyone have their OB-4…
- Always powered on
- Always connected to power
In it’s default environment, I have my OB-4 connected via line-in to my desktop computer… so I don’t really turn it off. I also have the AC power cable plugged in (because it’s always on).
Is this no good bad news bears?
…bad for flash/storage because of continuous writes? (at least, i think it’s flash)
…bad for battery life? (if not engineered to account for this scenario)
I’ve noticed that the tape stops spinning after a period of prolonged silence… then automatically resumes when audio is detected.
Anyone else do either/both of these? Anybody have bad results from doing this?
Edited for clarity
