Hi x_man,

There are things that you might want to answer in order for us to find best solution for a certain configuration.

Required input voltage of your equipment?(120V/220V)

Runtime? (how much back up time you want to have for your equipment in an event of power problem)

Total Watts and VA?(you may see those information from a sticker on each devices that you want to stay up if there's power problem)

The SUA1500i from the link can support 980W/1500VA of attached equipment. And yes, a smart ups is compatible with almost all loads in which, tyically, we use it for computer peripherals. In addition, APC by Schneider Electric has available product that is compatible specifically for entertainment system such as television sets etc.
