I would think an UPS would be a simple solution for anyone with power issues in their house/office. Doesn't matter if it's a computer, a television, or an amplifier. A simple $40~60 UPS should cover you from surges and power loss, etc. Or you can just run from a basic surge protector. Loss of power is better than allowing a surge to occur, and those are like $10. You're not just plugging into the wall with all your electronics are you?
I am using a surge protector for everything I just didn't know if this would be more harmful than usual during a surge? I don't get the science behind the you should unplug your phones every tome you power the amp on/off kind of thing so I was wondering since this had more power if it would be more likely to cause damage.
Also whats a UPS. As I said earlier I'm rather clueless.
