I know about the controversy with some people and the use of power conditioners. However, I have my HCA-1205A amp connected to an APC Line-R 1250 power conditioner with surge suppression. The manual says that the maximum capacity of the Line-R 1250 is 1250 W or 1250 VA. The Parasound manual says that the "power requirements" for the amp is 1500 W. Since the amp requires 250 W more than the APC is rated, is it doing any good connecting the amp to it? Should I just connect the amp directly to the wall outlet or use the Panamax 1000+ instead (I also have the Panamax 1000+)?
