How to make your CD player/amp live longer ?


Just want to know how to let CD player/amp live longer, from electronics point of view....

Should I leave power always on ? ...etc.

How long should I expect a CD player/amp to have under normal operation ?

My first CD player(Hitachi) which was given to me as a gift back in the early 80's is still working perfectly today. The same goes for my Kenwood KT7500 Tuner/KA7300 Int amp which I bought new around 1976. My father has older pieces which are working perfectly as well. I've mostly turned them on and off. My current CDP, a CAL Icon MkII, has performed perfectly since I bought it new.(Now that I've said that it will probably break tomorrow!) I've had good luck with only a few minor problems over the yrs.
It's realy a matter of either using it or not using.
I saw the auction where Towncar from 1990 had only 7,000 original miles on it and were used not more than 4...500mi per year.
I shut the transport off. I leave the dac on full time. I leave the amp on full time, but lower the volume control setting to 00. Phono pre is in the amp. Power conditioner (active), stays on full time.
CD player has a mechanical drive that is likely to die. Pure electronics like amps are another thing. Caps may go after years, tubes need replaced and maybe a tranny may have problems but for a reference there are a ton of old guitar amps from the 50's and 60's out there that are still chugging along having lived a lot harder life than any home gear ever would.
