Power-Related Components

My main theater setup has five dedicated 20 AMP circuits running solid cooper single wire in greenfield setup. It was recommended and it seems okay. PrePro lives on one circuit, Power Amp another, Oppo another, Kuro Elite on one, and I can't remember what is on the final one.

Other Audio Equipment

Computer sound setup:
Computer optical out to a Cambridge Dac Magic plugged into a Sunfire Theater Grand III Prepro feeding a Rotel RB 1070 amp powering B&W Nautilus 905 speakers. It works for me.

I also listen to my computer with a Geek Out 450 Headphone amp/DAC which I adore.

In the big room I have an Anthem Statement D2 feeding a Sunfire Theater Grand Amp, driving B&W Nautilus 803N, 805N, and HTM1 speakers. Above this floats a Pioneer Kuro Elite Pro 151FD. Now featuring an Oppo 105 connected up to a dedicated computer for music and what not. Yeah Oppo! I also have a Squeezebox Touch connected to this system.

I another room I have a pair of JVC turntables (QL-50, Direct Drive); one has an SME 3009 Improved tonearm and an Ortofon 2M Black Cartridge. The other has a Grace 707 Tonearm and a Grado Cartridge. These feed into an Akai AM 2800 Integrated Amp sitting under a matching Akai AT-2600 Tuner. Speakers are ADS L710 Series II with a nice little REL T1 Subwoofer. I also feed the amp with an old Squeezebox Duet.
