Absolutely not true.. This memory draw is very, very minimal..

I just have a little marine amp that I plug my MP3 player into. The MP3 player has a built-in FM radio if I don't want to listen to my tunes, and if I want to watch a DVD I just plug in my portable DVD player instead. Cost less than $100, and draws zero current when switched off as it doesn't have any memory/LCD to power.
