For the best sound plug your amp direct in the wall. Your other components will benefit from "line conditioning" which you don't have. You can experiment with different components like DVD or processor if you have an extra outlet that you can by-pass the Panamax. It probably won't make that much difference. It could be worse if digital hash from these components back feeds through the amp.
In the ideal system you would have separate circuits for amp, analog and digital etc... You don't, so it's ok if you plug your UPS and panamax in the same duplex/quadplex.
Keep in mind, inexpensive gear can sometimes benifit more from line conditioning and isolation because they have cheap power supplies and regulation.
Unless you're a renter, you (and your system) will benefit substantially by having an electrician install dedicated lines. It's usually not as expensive as even a modest line conditioner. And unlike Steuspeed above, my line conditioners -- Tice Power Block III and PS Audio Power Plant (for front-end gear) --make a further audible sonic improvement compared to plugging them directly into the wall. The difference is easy to hear, in my system at least. Good luck, Dave.
I use a Monster HTS 2000 Power Cord Extention Conditioner,and have that plugged into a Porter Outlet that is Cyro Treated.This seems to work very effectively.I also plug in my front end system straight into the cyro outlet as well.In this case it is my turntable.I plug my tube power amp into its own outlet since it can push 15 amps on its own.
Eventually I will get a Porter Port Outlet for my Amp as well.I have taken my Monster Power Strip out of the cyro treated outlet and the sound stage would collapse and the highs would become somewhat brittle and hard in comparison to the cyro treated outlet.
I just thought I should bring this up as well,since it may help out your system all the more.
