    I would imagine that the majority of the draw is the amp, does it have a powered down mode or is it always on (some people, myself being one can detect an audible hum when an amp is powered, but most people cannot hear it).
    Actually it is an Yamaha AV receiver.  The next series of experiments will be to see what each individual appliance draws when just switched on at the unit, switched off the gang etc.  Having one switched gang makes it less of a pullaver.  I use hearing aids but have only heard the bassy hum from my PC 2:1 (with a subwoofer) sound setup.

    "I will also not cry too much when the 1 fish in the heated tank  (inherited from MIL who passed last year) dies. Unfortunately I'm too much of a softy to help him on his way lol."

    A real money saver would eat the fish and save money on energy and food.
