Depending on the brand and the type of receiver, it might or might not turn off additional components. I have an old Sony ES that once I turn the receiver off, it turns my tv off automatically. Pioneer also has a link cable that you can connect to like componensts and it allows you to control them through one remote (usually the receiver), so that might turn off components as well.
Beeing infamiliar with buying seperate components, does a sleep-mode (system turns to standby in a set period of time the user sets) of an AV receiver means that the connected cd-player also turns to standby? As they are seperate components (most probably of different brands), it doesn't seem expectable, but I need to know before I buy something. I mean, what is a sleep-mode when you have to turn off the cd-player manually anyway?
Thanks in advance
