Power/Wattage meter

Hello everyone,

Does anybody know that if there is a power meter that I can hook up to my pre amp or amplifier that can read the power/wattage
that I am using?

Thanks!!

The Kill-A-Watt is IME the go to tool for a low priced but reliable and accurate meter of numerous parameters related to AC Power. Watts, Volt-amps, phase angle, voltage, frequency...

Some big box home improvement stores have them, but they are available all over the web.

Kill-a-Watt is good, I have two of them.

Amps: 100w each idle but ready , preamp 70w, and another 100w for cable box and cd player and HDRadio and ethernet hub and DAC and...

Ballpark $1/watt for yearly cost if 24hr usage.

The Kill-A-Watt EZ is good, extra features over the base model.

Neither is illuminated so get a flashlight too.

I'll be back later...
