I'm wanting to purchase a Tripp Lite ISOBAR6DBS and an Isoblok 2-0 surge suppressor (the former is for a AV Receiver, DVD, subwoofer, etc.; and the latter is for a switch controlled ceiling outlet for a Panasonic AE-700U ceiling mount projector). The circuit is 20-amps. The Tripp Lite website recommends that each of the devices be used on a 15-amp circuit. My question is can I still use the Tripp Lite devices on the 20-Amp circuit? Or, any other product ideas?

You can plug the surge suppressors into either 15 or 20 amp circuits, it does not matter which. I visited the Tripp Lite website and did not see any "recommendation" to use the surge suppression products you mentioned in a 15-amp circuit.
