I suspect any issues related to any sort of current limiting from a "regular surge protector" have nothing to do with the surge protection itself but are related to the power conditioning that always seems to be included along with the surge protection. Supposedly the higher end surge protectors from companies like SurgeX don't have such issues.

I have a surgex 315 which is a combo surge protector/ power conditioner. Advertised as used at Carnegie Hall.
Parasound rep did not know that model but said they had problems with MOV types like furhman and Panamax. At this point the A51 is plugged directly in the wall.

Something like this high end unit works well as well (uses moving mode surge protection rather than MOVs).

I'm currently running a Schiit Yggrdasil > Schiit Mjolnir > Parasound A23 > KEF LS50 + SVS SB1000. The Mjolnir is only being used as a preamp at this point -- I no longer use the headphone amp.

I'm considering replacing the Mjolnir with a P5, though I don't need the input switching -- the single XLR input is the only input I need. I'm considering the P5 for two reasons -- first, the Mjolnir gets quite warm and in the summer, heats up my room quite a bit. The second reason is for the bass management in the P5. Currently, I have the sub wired in parallel with the speakers, using the sub's built-in crossover. I'd like to use the crossover in the P5 instead, along with its sub level output.

Is the P5 a true balanced topology internally or does it sum the balanced input? Any other advice on this potential change?

Thanks!

The P5 is not balanced.

However, its a great preamp for the price and easy to integrate subs with mains and sub filters.

I upgraded mine due to the itch, but you have to go high up in price to beat it I think.
