Just curios, would you mind telling us what you have plugged into your S15? I also have an S15 that is currently supporting my entire rack. 73" DLP, AVR-A100, HTPC, Oppo 95, TiVo, xBox, Wii, etc... I've been thinking of adding an EMO XPA-5 to the rack "just because", but honestly the one sticking point is power. I've spent lots of money on clean, safe, battery backed power. Limiting the current to a large amp makes no sense. But power direct from wall seems counter to all preventative measure.
Your experience might help me decide. On paper, the POTENTIAL power draw of the XPA-5 seems to much. In practice, I just don't know. Is your S15 running an AV/Pre Amp also, along with other gear to include the EMO?
Thanks for your time and would appreciate anyone's info. I'm running at about 55% load on my S15 now. That leaves about 400 watts remaining for anything else.
