What AVR / UPS do you have your machine hooked up to. From what I understand, the Quad G5 has a 1000-watt power supply, but the biggest (semi-affordable) UPS unit I can find is 860 watts. The only time it really hits that maximum, as with most machines is at startup. My exisiting 900 VA machine sounds an overload alarm when I turn the machine on - could this be causing damage? I'm half tempted just to plug it into my Line AVR and risk it if the power goes out. Suggestions?
