    I agree. We used to have a Sonos speaker on top of the refrigerator that was plugged into the duplex behind the refrig.

    Yes, it can:

    Regarding the Mass. amendment, if the manufacturers instructions require an individual branch circuit (110.3(b)) then a single receptacle would be required. Typically built in microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher are the most common pieces of equipment which potentially require a single receptacle.
