Shutting down Strato, Alto and Disc Server

Hello All

I am going to travel next week and also have contractors working at my house, They mentioned replacing my dedicated hvac system for my media room as well. I am sure while they are working on it the temperature in that room may go up. I already powered down my processor. Is there a safe way to shut down my K components.

Cheers

Raj

Yes, of course, shut them down. I still have clients that keep their systems powered off, and only turn them On when they want to watch a movie. I don't recommend doing that for a couple of reasons, one is added stress on the PS and drives, and the other is receiving automatic updates.

Thanks Jim. Is there a process I should follow to shut down. My Roon server on nucleus has a power off button in admin console to safely shut down. Does K also have something like that?

Place the Strato and Alto into Standby ("Power" button on the IR remote; ENTER_STANDBY via IP; or press the front panel Standby button). For Terra, flip down the front panel and press the power button (centre of the face in between the drive bays) to shut down the unit. Give the HDDs a 15-20 seconds to finish parking and spinning down, then simply unplug the devices.
