Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here's a "quick" rundown on my problem.
I live in south Florida and our power can be problematic. A few times a week the power will go out(?) and come back very quickly. So fast the clock isn't screwed up on the oven, but it knocks it out on my HT system. I have an old APC UPS XS 1500 which seemingly dies when this happens, which kills stuff hooked up to it. I need to re-power the unit to "fix" the problem. I'm going to replace it because I believe the battery is shot. What I don't know is
1. What is going on with my power?
2. Is this hurting my gear?
3. What component will alleviate the problem?
4. What features are important in a replacement?
I have looked at everything from inexpensive Tripp-Lite units to the APC H15 and the Furman F-1000 UPS.
I'm assuming a UPS is important for DVR recording and the potential use in a theater with projector down the line. I would prefer a unit which can go in a rack in the future.
My gear consists of an Elite X5FD, Parasound Halo A52, Denon 3808Ci, Sony PS3, Seaton SubMersive HP, Toshiba HD-DVD player, XBOX 360 and an Anti-mode 8033.
Please help. Thanks!
