Default For those of you who have a rack.....

Amp manufacturers generally suggest plugging their amps directly into the wall outlet instead of a power strip/surge protector. For those of you who have your equipment in a rack, where do you have your amp plugged? I will be installing a rack in the near future and was curious. TIA

I have my forced air cooling amps at the bottom of the rack, near the Kaleidescape server. I have convection cooled amps at the top of the rack.

Almost every single amp I have used in my theater has been plugged into a balanced power transformer. The only amp that I ever plugged directly into the wall was an Adcom 300W x 7 amp that could not run on balanced power for some reason.

You definitely don't want to use a typical surge protector. They restrict voltage and you are shortchanging your experience.
