What units do you use personally for a HT or audio system? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks
I do use a UPS for my HT system, but not the amplifiers. I use the surge outlets on the UPS for the amplifiers due to the reasoning you stated. If you get a large enough UPS it could be used for amplifiers provided it was the Line-Interactive UPS. With those the line is just conditioned with the inverter only supplying power when the line power is off or dipped. I use the UPS for my DVR and other equipment.
