NEVER EVER use a power strip. The better the system the less musical it will sound if you use such things. They create both a bottleneck for current and are a magnet for noise. A good system will choke on it and reveal the noise in all its painful splendour. I learnt this long ago but was reminded of it when I was having some work done on my dedicated mains, and temporarily plugged my system into another circuit using a distribution box. The sound was completely unlistenable.
