Switched AC Outlet

I have a Denon AVR-591 Receiver and would like to add a Switched AC Outlet so I can a fan to cool my components which are in an enclosed cabinet. I intend to use a 12v computer fan connected to a wall wart to step down the output from 120V.
Is this feasible?

Can you share what's stopping you?

Yes

The Denon does not have a switched AC Outlet - I would like to setup the fan so that when the Denon is turned on the fan is turned on.

Then a switching power bar like this.

Followed your link and this appears to be the answer. Am waiting for an answer from Denon but will probably go with this since it will meet my needs and is a very simple solution. Thanks for your input, greatly appreciated and now can get a decent nights sleep

Just sharing.

I own two similar bars and they work fine. I did have an issue with one that a Netbook didn't pull enough power to turn it on so if your box draws less than 10 Watts when on, you know why.

Thanks to all your inputs - the switched power surge (theres a lot of them) - went with the APC P8GT unit. .
