Hi does anyone know the power consumption in watts for the following products? I'm trying to work out what wattage ups I need to filter the power supply.
They are control4 products:
Home controller 200 x 2
4 zone amp
Audio matrix switch
Media player x 2
Plus I can't find the info for:
Sharp bluray bd-hp22
Me design video matrix switcher tp810

My two amps alone are rated at 600w and 670w so I think I am looking at at least a 2000va or 3000va. I found an eaton e series 2000va 1200w for about $309 so i maybe better off getting two of these, as there seems to be a big price jump to 3000va. What do you think? Any help is greatly appreciated.

The simplest way to figure out what the devices actually draw is to contact your local electric utility (in some areas, your local library) and ask if they have a program to loan Kill-a-Watt electric power monitors.  The KAW plugs into the wall outlet, the device plugs into the KAW, and the KAW displays the device's power consumption.
