High Current Outlets on Power Conditioners?

Alton TAlton T Posts: 66
Hello Forum. :)
I was looking at Power Conditioners.
Some have "High Current" Outlets, along with the other Outlets.
1) How important are "High Current" outlets?

2) How do I know if My Amps are "High Current" ?
F1.. I read your post on the watts doubling with the Ohms ? :)

B&K ST 202?

Anyone got a Monster HTS 5000 MkII for sale? :)
Thanks for viewing,
Alton T. :)

    Thanks for posting.. :)
    I was searching for more info. on Power sources, and, Wall Plug selections
    in a house.
    My Stereo stuff is in a "Coffee Table" in the middle of the "Listening Room".
    There is no Electrical Plug Outlets in the middle where I sit.
    I got to run Electrical Extension Cords to reach the Components.
    That is why I was looking for a good "Power Strip".

    An Amplifier, ( I sometimes run two amplifiers ) , a PRE AMP, TurnTable, SCHIIT AUDIO LOKI & MAGNI.
    All that into one " AC Plug Outlet.".. ( I worry about overloading )
    I was going to use Two different Outlets, to sorta split the Load, but,
    I was watching this video.
    About the 14 Minutes into the video, the Host ( Michael Fremer) explains his thoughts on Power Conditioners on one line..

    F1, :) That Monster Warning, is it the Ethics, or, about the Product Quality?
    No disrespect to your feelings/thoughts... Just clarification.. <3

    Thanks for sharing that video.
    Good to see others have the same opinion about a single 20amp line feeding one system. That’s what a well respected audio dealer told me here in ATL also. Not to knock anyone else with multiple, but what Michael said in this video just makes sense.

    Also, Niagara baby!!

    I haven’t had any problems with my Monsters.
    Like Carver that name seems to bring up a lot of for and against biases and arguments.
    Wish I could get a dedicated 20 amp outlet! I have heard the benefits long ago in another apartment I lived in when I plugged a radio in to one that was for an air conditioner and on it’s own circuit. I was listening to a distant FM station which was plagued with noise and when I switched to the 20 amp outlet the noise dropped by an order of magnitude!!
    Suddenly I could hear the music 🎼 🎶 playing.

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Make sure they are on separate circuits. Home electrical wiring puts multiple outlets on the same circuit.

    Hello Forum/Guys.. :)
    Good Morning.
    Thanks for the postings.

    1) Do Amplifiers have a "built-in" EMI/RFI noise attenuation in their Power Supply Systems ?? o:)
    I was thinking, maybe the designers addressed this in their Amplifier designs/circuitry.

    Here is my Component Table. All components are within reach.
    I can Tweak the controls conveniently.
    Thanks for viewing. :)
    Stay safe everyone!!
    Have a safe Holiday weekend... :)
