Can you elaborate on why anything other than a double conversion UPS is a waste?  I'm brand new to UPS's, power conditioners, or whatever they're called, and I'm trying to understand more about them. 

 

Could you also recommend a specific one?

 

Thanks.

It was all relative. A UPS would be fine.

 

I was more so specifying the benefit of a pure sine wave UPS. But in general

online/double conversion UPS's perform better with equipment that can be sensitive to 

power fluctuation.

 

You could also just do a isolation transformer. It depends on your needs/wants.

 

Belkin, APC, SurgeX are all fine choices.

If you consider SurgeX the best, what's the SurgeX equivalent of the H15BLK that you recommended?  

 

Taking into consideration that this power conditioner will be powering a 750 watt PC, two monitors (22 and 24 inch), a TV ( 32 inch), and a headphone amp and DAC, will the models similar to the H15BLK have enough power?

 

Thanks.

The Power pro UPS would be the equivalent, however I don't believe you can buy it new anymore (discontinued.)

 

They'll have more than enough power. I run a Macbook pro, along with amp/DAC headphones, amp/DAC speakers

and am fine with the H15. I run a 900 watt Mac Pro with dual 27' monitors with no problem.

That's using the SurgeX SU1000 line, I wouldn't foresee any problems for your use case.
