Actually, I found a solution to the situation you mention. Ready? When I don't want my home theater system to play loud, I turn down the volume on the receiver.
Yes, I have learned that it can be done. But I have my gears all programmed with a Logitech remote where 1 button operation to just about everything. With your method, I need to power the sub off manually and turn the receiver to night mode. In my simple setup, that is just not simple enough.
As for stand-by pass-thru not being an important feature....I couldn't disagree more. My kids play video games and watch Netflix often. I leave my receivers on stand-by so as to not be using a lot more electricity. No need for surround sound when watching Spongebob or Dora. I also don't need surround sound in the morning when watching the news. It's a key feature that I wouldn't go without.
