Adding a dedicated breaker & outlet for new room?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey folks,
I am in the process of buying a slightly used home and will be having an electrician do some wiring and etc for me soon. The plan is to have him run some outlets on the wall where the new plasma will hang and underneath there on a stand will be my parasound halo amp, preamp, yamaha receiver, PS3, DAC, BFD for EQing, and other remaining electronics.

How beneficial would it be to add a dedicated breaker for these outlets? Any gains in less ground loop or extra reserves for the power hungry amps? If so how big (amps)?

Just trying to get everything figured out now before I run out of time!

Thanks,
Brandon

How beneficial depends what other plugs/appliances are on the existing circuit.

So if u have no inclination to find out and not on a tight budget, go ahead and run one anyways. A new 20 amp should be ample.

I can attempt to find out what other outlets feed of this one run, but like you said, maybe I will just run a new 20 amp just to be safe
