the next step--20 amp circuit

I've upgraded components (most are close to the best I can afford), changed from a long speaker run/short interconnect configuration to the opposite (long XLR and short speaker cables), upgraded the cables at the same time, done the isolation bit, changed to hospital grade cryogenically treated outlets (my girlfriend just shakes her head) etc...

So, the next logical step I suppose is better power.

What are the key elements on which to focus (amperage,type of wire,etc)...

And, does anyone have recommendations on a good electrician who's done this in the Tidewater area of Virginia? Since my house is on a crawl space I hope to avoid a bunch of holes in walls...

Vermonter, a lot has been posted on Audiogon about this topic, but rather than just suggesting you do search on "dedicated lines" or "dedicated circuits," here's a link to one thread that has some good basic guidance:

If you were closer to Richmond, I could recommend a good electrician, but I can't help for Tidewater.

Good luck. This is well worth doing.
