Why no on/off switch?

Generally speaking, electronics are best left running. In 99% of the cases components in iFi products are ran at power/voltage that means there is little difference between shelf life and operation, so this does not really impact longevity either.

For devices with tubes, however, there are components (the tubes) which have a limited lifespan and which are not easily or cheaply replaced (NOS tubes are becoming extinct at a rapid rate), so they can (and should) be powered down when not in use to preserve tube life.

Past that we adhere to the 2013 EU law on standby.
