Hello Friends! I know power conditioners, regulators and ups have been discussed in length throughout the forums, but I'm hoping a few of you could help solve an issue somewhat particular to my living space.
My "home studio" has only one outlet (two sockets). Right now I'm running a lot of gear threw two full power strips at each socket. No real problems thus-far besides lack of available spots, but I feel I must be running at my rooms absolute power limit. I've got my computer, interface, eqs, compressors, pre's, monitors,etc... everything is plugged into one outlet.
In the very-near future, I'll be getting a tube microphone and a few more small pieces of gear. I can't imagine I have the necessary power (let alone the spots on my strips).
Would I benefit from a power regulator or UPS? Could you help steer me in the right direction? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
If you are in the US/CAN you might get one of those little Kill-a-Watt meters. Most audio systems use a lot less power than you would think.
Jim Brown suggests running everything (with the exception of big power amps) on one circuit. (I'll try to find the exact link tomorrow) Audio Systems Group, Inc. Publications
