I have the OR2200.

It's awesome, it has like 0db of noise in stand-by mode and puresine output (I've tested it.)
The 2200 requires a 20a breaker and wallsocket, the 1500 is 15a I believe.

Those are all good units, they all produce their rated power, so just sum the watts. Should be fine.
12a for the 15a units, and 15a for the 20a units etc etc.

After so many years of hearing it's bad to plug an amp into a UPS it's hard to do otherwise.
I've already bought the wiring and breakers for the box so I'm going to stick with the 15 amp units.

UPS's are fine against multi-minute brownouts and blackouts and moderate levels of over/under.

Just don't expect them to provide top-notch surge protection or noise filtering or catastrophic overvoltage or in-rush limiting like the SurgeX does...

In terms of conditioning, the PS audio PowerPlant is one of the better units out there that I've tested (99.7% clean), but 97% of that can be obtained with a (much cheaper) online-UPS, or a Eaton Power-Sure 800 if you want a passive whole-house series line conditioner.
They are heavy and loud and warm and expensive, and you'll also take an efficiency hit.
No free lunch!

I think I am going to do what you do. I will plug my UPS into the Ultralink which is rated for 3800joules of protection.

2430 J Protection
I don't need it... I have a SurgeX protecting my UPS.
All SurgeX's are rated for a minimum of 1000 surges at 360,000 joules, with no failures to the load and itself.
(That's the minimum... hehe! 😉)

I meant for me. 😜
Gives me a lot more headroom with 1500 watts

It looks like a newer, more robust / efficient design. I don't see why not...

I don't mean to hijack or anything but I was actually looking for a power bar and this looks nicer and I can fit it in a spot that power bar will not....

Is it a good brand? I doubt it does anything extra besides look cool but don't want to burn money, lol

Thanks!

I couldn't tell you much about is other than it has never given me any issues. I bought it because of the high joule rating (3800) and because it was available close to me. Just be aware it doesn't regulate power. Some people see the digital reading and think so.

As long as it does what a normal surge protector will and look nice (which it sounds like it will) I am ok with that.

I have an old Monster Power Bar that was thrown in with a TV at Best buy but it's tall and takes up room as everything plugs in the top so it has to sit on the floor....this can at least sit on a shelf!

You might consider this one also. From what I have read the Tripplite Isobars's are pretty decent.

I'm digging the front plugs, easy access in a pinch!

I'll have to think as that looks awesome too!

I am able to get the Ultralink one locally for $138 CAD (price match with Memory Express ($129+9 shipping) and that's twisting my arm a bit.

You can get a SurgeX XG-PCS-15D on ebay for less than a bag of coffee, like 1-2 digits.

It offers way better protection than MOV-only based devices, the internal guts of it I posted earlier if you want to compare.

Most of these protectors are empty boxes by comparison, you should see if kingpin will de-lid his so that we can see the guts of it, then we'll know what it actually has or doesn't have.

Price is right but looks like it only supports two devices, would be nice to have 4 or 6 outlets! (Receiver, Amp, 4K player, TV, PS4) I'm guessing something like thais from SurgeX is expensive!

Zerosurge makes the modules for Surge X and they’re much less expensive.
