Recommend a power Smart Power Strip/Surge Protector

Hello All

My subwoofer amp/cross over does not have an auto on and i fried it a while back leaving in on 24/7. I would like to get it to turn on automatically when i power up my AVR. The AVR as a 12 volt trigger but the amp does not. Has anyone used a "smart power " strip to accomplish this. If so any recommendations, it seems that trip lite, apc and a few others make a strip where i can plug the AVR into the master plug, which will than turn on anything else in the "slave " mode.

Or should I just get a rack mounted style power conditioner and turn the whole thing on and off manually ?

Recommendations appreciated.
