Default Re: What's you dream system?

Personally, I don't understand the use of a UPS for a stereo and/or AV setup. When a power failure years ago could corrupt a computer disk, it almost made sense. Still IMO, it was a 1/100 chance. Yes, I do believe with the cost of some systems that are close to 6 digits ($100k) or more a unit telling me about under voltage maybe helpful. But I don't know of any Mark Levinson, Krell, etc company that sells amps SUGGEST you plugging one of their monsters into a UPS. I actually think Krell tells you NOT to. Thus, IMO maybe a Furman telling you about voltage and not pluging in a amp (maybe minimal stuff) and getting in a electrical person to install a dedicated electrical line with a decent ground would give you 10x of any performance increase could give you than with a UPS.
