I have only a 100A service and when the window unit A/C is on, running anything other than the HiFi tends to trip the breaker. Today, the vacuum tripped it. Being in a manufactured home for the past 12 years, I've come to realize the shortcomings, especially in the AC department. Sigh. About a month ago, the AC went off/on/off/on/off and power was lost to the house. I later found out a car hit a pole. Fortunately, my ST-120 was not on either time. Unfortunately, I cannot separate the A/C from the HiFi sharing the same circuit. I want to protect it beyond the diode mod.
Sooo, I have an APC BX1500M 900W uninterruptible power supply on the way which is a good time for me to now ask if there is any reason I should not use this for my HiFi equipment or specifically the VTA amp?
I ask because I don't see them advertised in the audio mags, and there seems to be little conversation. I'm a bit baffled as I'm used to UPS' being used for computer and networking equipment. We used these not just to keep data flowing but more so to allow for a graceful shutdown. Seems like a good option for HiFi gear.
