Does this require the power button to turn on or can it turn on/off when AirPlayed to it?

Some amps can detect incoming signal and not power the speakers when no signal is present, to allow "always on" functionality without constantly sending juice to the speakers and causing long term damage. It would be great if this can either turn on automatically when AirPlayed to it, or at least turn off automatically after a period of inactivity.

  • Answering my own question: the mu-so has a "standby" timer which you can adjust via the app. The unit will turn off after X minutes if not being airplayed to. Also, it does turn on automatically when airplay starts; so you can start and stop airplay whenever you want and never have to actually touch the unit after you set it up.
