    I have read about these things in other threads and they look like a great idea. Would a GFCI panel breaker on a dedicated line serve the same purpose? Would a power outage shut it down as well?

    No, the panel breaker will only trip on a fault, as it will not trip on a power outage. What you want is a latching GFCI that has to be manually reset on a power glitch.
    See the Shockfield GFCI TRC14650006-6 @ Amazon. bout $30. That's want some of us use. Dale

    Thanks Dale, I kinda’ thought so. I’ve seen extension cords with in-line manual reset GFCIs. I guess if you wanted to be creative, you could cut off the ends and install “audiophile approved” plugs - and then use these as power cables for sensitive components.

    Wait a minute ..... have I just discovered a niche product? cheers
