MR-8HD Owner’s Manual (Names and functions)
This switch cannot turn off the
power completely. When this switch is "up",
the MR-8HD enters standby mode (i.e. the
power does not completely turned off).
Therefore, if you do not use the MR-8HD
for a long time, we recommend unplugging
the power cord from the AC outlet.
