I have gone through so many threads on how to protect my system from electrical spikes and found I was far more interested in dealing with dirty power and moderate brown outs.
What do you folks recommend as a minimum to handle the above?
My system to cover includes: AVR, large plasma, BD player, TiVo
I see names bantered around such as Panamax, Furman, APC, Belkin etc. I also get contrary views on power output from some units not being true sin waves but more of a synthed step style wave and so on. It becomes really hard to tell what are the simple truths to just making sure anyone's media center is both protected and running at optimum with clean power.
I have my computers and two NAS units and other accessories with UPS units that seem to do their job well enough. For these, I just want to handle surges and as well of course, graceful shut downs of the NAS and computers when there is a power failure.
