Our homes are connected via an intricate grid of electrical connections – and this system is sensitive to a wide variety of environmental changes. Weather conditions, natural disasters, atmospheric anomalies... they can all disrupt the flow of power to your home theatre system, placing your equipment in jeopardy. Today we’ll be looking at a selection of protective devices, which can keep both you and your home safe.
With the ability to suppress surges up to 2160 Joules, the Tripp Lite Surge Protector is a virtual guarantee that your components will remain safe. Currently retailing for $47.99, this device offers owners an incredible one year warranty – which will cover $150,000 worth of audio/visual equipment, should the device fail to keep your components intact.
A built-in diagnostic LED confirms the unit is grounded, so you’ll always be sure the Tripp Lite is providing a safe and regulated electrical current. Using advanced Power Save technology, this device is engineered to cut off AC when it’s not in use – offering consumers a convenient way to look after their pocketbook and the environment. The Tripp Lite even protects your network's data line, to ensure your connectivity remains safe from power surges. It’s easy to see why this product is much more than a high-tech device – it’s practically an insurance plan, designed to safeguard the longevity and functionality of all your favourite appliances.
Static can build up in the most unlikely of places. When your valuable home theatre components come into contact with an object containing such a charge, expensive and non-reversable damage can occur. Initially intended for use with computing equipment, StarTech’s 24 X 26 inch Anti-Static Mat can protect any device that relies on sensitive data storage components – making it a great accessory to for your XBox 360 or your Playstation 3. $26.99 is all it takes to provide your hardware with an additional layer of protection.
The Monster High Definition Power Center is ready to assist you with all your surge protection needs. Owners can rest easy, knowing that their device includes a $450,000 guarantee on your equipment – which virtually assures you a worry-free viewing experience, regardless of the weather.
Boasting a Joule rating of 7686, the Monster is ready to absorb just about any surge you can throw at it. If you need to micro-manage your equipment, the Monster HD’s built-in digital meter allows you to monitor the voltage of all of your eleven protected AC outlets. Conveniently color coded, these outlets are specially designed to help you keep track of the connectivity of each component. Equipped with a state-of-the-art circuitry filter, this Monster even reduces electronic noise – making annoying audio interference a thing of the past.
Fully compatible with existing PLC systems, the Monster High Definition Power Center can work seamlessly with networking equipment which transmits data via your home’s electrical system. Compatibility such as this does come with a price, however. With a retail price of $549.95, this is one power center that certainly pulls no punches.
