You don't have to run your speakers or monitor on the UPS, if the power goes, you want enough time to backup your data.
If you REALLY want to, you can plug an outlet strip in the the back of the APC. But don't overload the circuit.
Those Furmans... yeah, I bought several of them too. They aren't worth anything. I have been inside them- nothing useful. It's NOT a conditioner. They have a cheap ferrite filter, and an MOV- which means, one spike, then it blows- and the next spike, goes right to your equipment. Don't trust them. Equitech, Tripplite, Surge-Ex have all committed to make big in-roads with power. Furman calls their power conditioning but it's not the same thing. It's really just distribution designed to be an improvement over a plug-strip with some rack lites. Furman does lots of other good things though, and they DO make a voltage regulator- but it's a very specific piece.

They have more outputs but I here a lot of bad rep about the Furman stuff.
Or if I'd go with the APC, doesn't it matter if the speakers or monitor are not connected to this device?
