I am setting up a new system with rear projection TV, receiver, separate amp for whole house audio and all the other add-ons. I have a dedicated 20 amp outlet and the TV and amps alone total out at about 2100 watts. I was looking at some non-MOV type supressors/line conditioners such as the Brickwall and Adcom (the Adcom is limited to 1800 watts total). I wouldn't mind having sequential turn-on but that isn't an option on the Brickwall models. My budget for this portion of the project is less than about $400. Anyone have any suggestions. Can I avoid having a second circut and supressor/conditioner involved?

R, it's extremely rare for an audio system to even approach the rated power consumption, because even at loud levels, the average power delivered, and thus used, is a fraction of the ratings. A 20-amp circuit is more than enough for most systems.

However, separate circuits for isolation reasons is another matter. A good, multi-section power conditioner should suffice for your purposes. Stay tuned, others will provide make/model information I can't provide.
