Stereo Receiver Power Outlets

Stereo receivers should have enough power outlets to plug in the other components.

All of the stereo receivers I have seen have one or two outlets on the back. These outlets usually have a warning that you can't plug anything in that draws much current. So if you have more components, you end up having to buy an outlet strip or extension cord.

Why not have a more heavy-duty cord on the receiver, a bunch of outlets on it, and maybe even a built-in surge protector.

       We once had an _old_ Yamaha B2 power amp and I *think* it had an outlet intended for the C2 pre-amp to be plugged into. I don't think it was a normal outlet or connecting power cord, though.   

       Anyway it died and now we have some obscure stereo gear that has separate power supplies altogether.   

       I do like it when computer makers put an outlet for the monitor on the machine (some Macs and some others). 'Tis convenient.

       most receiver switched AC outlets have limited power capabilities. Not recommended to drive a subwoofer from your receiver = need for separate switched power.

       I can vouch for UnaBubba's comment, I had this exact problem when I tried to use the outlets on the back of my receiver.
