Using NeoPSU

Hi

I have a NeoPSU connected to a RP3. What is the correct way of turning the platter on and off? Is it by having the Neo continuously turned on and using the switch button on the plinth or is it by having the switch button on the plinth in the position ON and using the switch button on the Neo?
Thanks in advance!

Using the old ttpsu I always had the switch on the tt to on and used ttpsu to turn on and off. On my RP8 it has no switch so only on/off is by ttpsu.

That's what I do.

Thanks all. I wonder if there are any disadvantages with doing it the other way? Any risks for damaging the motor or the psu?

Shouldn't be, a switch just closes the circuit, and the switch on the table is just a simple single pole, single throw switch.

I'd say what's easier for you. For me it's the turntable switch. p3-24 =D>

I use the turntable switch while using the turntable. This is a fairly elderly Planar 3 (maybe 23 years old) with new 24V motor and a few other upgrades/replacements.
I switch off the NeoPSU when listening to other media, mostly streaming digital from my digital music collection via a Logitech Squeezebox player.
