    Is it normal for there to be a popping sound when turning standy off after the amp warms up?

    It happens to the best of us.

    Its fine as long as not preceded with snaps and crackles. The three together will get you.

    Thanks guys, It worried me because I don't remember it happening before but I have been leaving the master at a higher setting lately so I may have not heard it.

    I just recently put new pre-amp tubes in it so I was thinking it was that. They all look good but I swapped in the original tubes and it still did it.

    Think it's a small electrical arc that occurs when the switch breaks. Try it really fast see what it does.
