For $10K it probably has a good size power supply to feed the tubes. If I paid that much for a CD player, I would consider a separate 20 amp circuit for it, even if it was across the house from the breaker box. I see no downside.
Looking at photos of the rear of your cd player, it does not have the 20A male IEC power cord receptacle. The pin pattern for a 20A cord is different than a 15A cord. What makes you think you have a 20A cord?
dill I was looking at the Rega Reference power cable web page and specifications say....Power lead cable rating 20 amp.. Thats why i thought i needed a dedicated 20 amp circuit. But akg_ca answered my question
As far as I know, from the installation cost perspective, there's no difference between running a dedicated 20 amp line and a 15 amp line from the breaker box. It just gives you the option to use the wall plug in the future for a high current amp.
