Yes, No worries on EMPs... But a direct nuke hit ... well, I guess before we propose to put the cage in a very deep bunker we might consider that an insurance policy might be the best solution after the surge protectors.

If you were unlucky enough for a direct hit sadly there is no current tech that can handle such extremes. Aside from unplugging from the wall. As most insurance would also consider that to be an act of God and sadly not covered.

Have you guys seen Danny Richie's{GR Research} you tube vids.

He has a personal setup with everything coming from DC Battery power. Supposed to be unreal. Clean detailed pure music. According to some other reviewers that have heard it. Though he hasn't released so many of the details on you tube. Probably all info of the making of the power supply on his Audio Circle forums.

There are brands of UPS that we use for servers that also employ similar designs. I can tell you that spreadsheets are clean and detailed, and email with a wide presence in the organization because of these magical devices!

As far as I'm aware his set up is a little different from a typical UPS. As it uses multiple batteries for the supply, Car type I think.

Is "act of god" defined? I can apply that to anything "it was gods will"

In any case ... I'm sure they will cover anything for a price ...

If anyone is interested there is a guy on youtube that covers aspects of amplifier and power supply design in a practical way with schematics and testing. I have really learned a lot there on this stuff.

JohnAudioTech

Here is a good one

Consider the vast majority of protectors have a let-through (clamping) voltage of 600V. This means your equipment will see 600V in the event of a transient provided the protector works as it ought to. Most 120VAC equipment is designed to withstand 330V per UL unless otherwise specified.

Act of god {Flooding, Lightning, Forest fires} I know some people our local insurance have told Sorry Not Covered, from such types of events. If you have the right people a very effective excuse.

John Audio Tech is great. So much info from him. I love those old antique radios he does. Mr Carlson's lab is another really detailed show. They really take the time to explain everything and share their past mistakes willingly. xraytonyb is another really good repair guy too.

I like those guys too! Xraytonyb rebuilt a mitsubishi amp and preamp I own that was my dads. I think I will rebuilt it in the future and his 2 part vids on it will be super helpful!

Very very generous when people like those share their knowledge. Dlab electronics is another good one. He’s all about tube radio gear and guitar amps.

Johnaudiotech is awesome as a way to help me fall asleep when I’m restless thinking about work. Bad sleeper as I get older.
