Ok boys time to be nice.
Time for some rules here.
PLAIN STUPIITY IS BANNED!
Before anybody over reacts (afraid that they could never post here again with such a rule):
EMBELISHED STUPIDITY IS NOT ONLY PERMITTED, IT IS ENCOURAGED!
The act of embelishment would indicate a modicum of intelligence by the poster, negating the urge by others to ignore the post because one believes the poster to be an absolute moron.
Whole house surge suppressors would seem to be a good idea. Of course one shouldn't buy one unless the suppressor meets applicable electrical safety standards. The other issue is will they indeed protect your equipment?
This require data.
Such as, does anyone use such a device. If so, did your ever have surge damage despite using such a device?
If twodevices can be identified as working, then we need to do a double blind test to determine which device hyas a better sonic oand/or visual effect in our HTS. This will not be a simple test to conduct but hell we have our criteria.
Better yet, just use the device I use. Its as least as good as safe sex (wearing a trojan) and doesn't have any apparent (to me) adverse effects other than perhaps a loss of some sensitivity.
I tried to insert a little substance into this post (hidden in the middle) but I offer it mostly as an example of embellished stupidity. Niot a high degree of embellishment, say for example, as would be in an elaborate April Fool"s joke, but hopefully enough to take the post out of the stupid class. Maybe not. OK. I'll settle. I may be stupid, but I'm also dumb.
