i am now looking to get my power stuff done.. i will be hooking up PJ, A/V receiver, DVD, SAT and VCR.. was looking at the Monster stuff, like a HTS2600/3600 or maybe even a strip. any input appreciated...
I'm really not a fan of Monster stuff (good quality but I think it is over priced for what you get). I power a Sony 50we610, Sony ES3000 Receiver, Motorola 6208 Cable Box, Pioneer DVD Player, & a HTPC with a Brickwall Surge protector & two Belkin UPS's. I run it like this:
Power -> Brickwall -> #1 Belkin UPS - > TV
Same Power -> Same Brickwall -> #2 Belkin UPS - > Everthing Else
I'm probably going to get another UPS and split-up some of the components. The Brickwall is for surge and the UPS's are for voltage regulation and backup power (not really necessary, but I nice to let the lamp in TV cool down!!).
I picked up a Power Conditioner/Surge Protector from Acoustic Research at Best Buy. It was about $30. The model number is AP-07S. It has 7 outlets, coax in-out, and telephone in-out. They have all sorts of different configurations for more or less money, but still cheaper than Monster anything!
