Does the 9886 have an internal amp off mode?

Yes. I believe it's 'POWER IC' or something like that. Accessed by holding the 'setup' button for a couple seconds and scrolling through the choices.

Yep, not positive on the 9886 but I have the 9887 and I believe they are almost identical.

Hold the Func./Setup button till the settings come up, go to GENERAL, then POWER IC, set it to off. That's how it is on the 9887 at least :).

Thanks!
Does having the internal amp off actually make any difference?

According to the manual, yes it improves sound quality.

my alpines amp can be turned off, if you switch it on/off you can notice a small difference but its not night and day... but why run the internal amp and have it generate power if you're not going to use it...
