Monoblock power amps same dedicated outlet?
Since you and I share the same amps but probably not the rest of the chain I will share what I did. I was told by .the Nordost rep it is best to power your system off one dedicated 20 amp circuit. So that's what I did  fortunately for my situation...

Look at the  deHavilland Ultravere 3 or the Mercury 3 preamps. It has a gold plated 32 stepped attenuator.I once had the Manley 300B myself, but my Ultravere 3 blows the Manley out of the water and at half the price.Mary 
Revel speakers - dealer scuttlebutt
