Just did a search on conditioners together with carver amps and found this in an old thread on another site:
"And remember, Bob Carver highly recommends plugging his amps directly into the wall outlet and to never use a power conditioner or god forbid a power strip. He believes they will not be able to supply the current peaks when needed."
I wonder if anyone here has any comments on conditioners and the environment here?
If I do go ahead and get one I'll need to find one that can provide sufficient current. Could someone please confirm that my reasoning in the following is correct (I know very little about electronics):
The sunfire sig. 600 has a max power consumption of 1800W. Here we have 220v power and fortunately the amp I'm receiving is a 220v model. So unless there's some scaling factor involved this means the amp can draw a maximum of 1800 / 220 = 8.2 amps. The power ratings for power conditioners are given in kVA and a model I'm interested in getting has a rating of 2.2 kVA. I think that means that it can provide 10 amps (2.2*1000/220 = 10) - and that this should be sufficient for anything the amp would require (and I'm never going to
drive the amp very hard). Is this correct?
I'm moving house shortly and I'll also consider getting an independent mains line put in for this new studio.
