Hello,


I have recently moved into an appartment and have bought some new AV gear. Ive had my 55 in led tv for about 3 weeks and recently bough a new samsung soundbar. I was using the soundbar for about 5 min when i heard a pop and the soundbar turn off and then back on. The sound is now crackly and distorted. Im not sure if this was just a bad soundbar or if this was caused by having it plugged into a dynex(cheap)surge protector. Should i get myself some sort of UPS or better surge protector. My TV and Xbox are plugged directly into the wall and haven't had any problems yet(knock on wood). I just dont know what to do, is a surge protector enough or should i get a UPS. Im not looking to spend a lot but want to get whats right. Please, any info on this would be great, im driving myself crazy with this.

Thanks. Would you recommend moving my tv and xbox from the wall plug to a surge protector?

Well, it's not going to stop surges, etc. to the expensive stuff not plugged into it! There are plenty of small wall-plug-sized surge protectors, too, if the strip isn't closeby...
