DarqueKnight's thread on PS Audio PCs touched upon the Power Plant Premier and its ability to only output 1,500 watts at its peaks. He indicated his Parasound JC1s can output about 1,700 watts @ 2ohms. So, basically the PPP would arguably hamper the performance of the JC1s.
Naturally his observations compelled me to wonder, what kind of output are my amps capable of at their peaks.
I asked the question on the Emotiva forums:
"Lonnie" Emotiva Global Mod - "It has a max output of just over 2000 watts and given the efficiency losses of the amp stage and power supply it could draw as much as 2800 watts.
We don't recommed that any of our amps be run through a power conditioner. They all have power conditioning, over voltage, under voltage, surge protection and such build in and it is designed to allow maximum performace from the amp. We currently have an amp that just came in for service and it is very appearant that it was run on a power conditioner and the regulators on each modules were highly stressed and one of the modules has melted completely.
Please do not put any of the amps on a power conditioner."
