I am looking for a quality power conditioner for my Home Theater setup consisting of Rotel 1075, 1080, 1068, with Paradigm Studio 100, 20 and center channel 570. I also have a panasonic plasma with max 440Watt rating.
What would be a good power conditioner(s) for this setup? What would you recommend for a UPS for this kind of load. I think the overall load maximum is roughly 3500 Watts.
I doubt the total load is 3500w. Can you run all this off the wall plug? That wall plug is rated for a max of 1500w. I think your total load might be 1000w. Check the manual of your units, it might list the wattage usage.
Remember, those wattage ratings are for full power. You amp uses 800w when it turned up all the way. I bet most of the time it's using about 250w max. Now your sub too, that's at full power. So most of the time 250w is what it will use. The TV should use the 440w all the time. Do you use the power amp (1075) and 5 chanel amp (1080) at the same time?
Yes, these wattage are startup as you said, but at the time of even a 1 sec power outage, all devices could start simultaneously, that is why I was looking at max power.
yes, both 1075 and 1080 are used. I use 1080 for front as they are power hungry.
Since I do prefer to have some UPS backup time in case of power outage (we get short outages during heavy rain..) I was thinking if I could just use a UPS and that might provide sufficient conditioning. Otherwise, I would have to go with UPSs and power conditioners in series.
