this forum more than once.
Our moderator stated it is a sometimes thing. Some electricity/electronics knowledgable folks here say it is baloney & a non-issue as none is needed under ordinary circumtances.
First, let me say no one is against a decent surge protector as a necessity.
In my experience, hooking my first big screen seemed disappointing. I had used a perfectly good Belkin surge protector. The cable guy quickly bypassed that to show the surge unit was introducing crap into the signal. Any surge protector used for a A/V needs to be specifically labled as made for A/V use.
I went the line protector route & do not regret it at all. Posters here had called me just psychologically swanting to see things, but I stand by my guns. There are a few brands that are apparently just fine. Under the premise of you get what you pay for, those around 200 bucks or a bit more have been reported as fine. Though I am not a believer in Monster Brand overly expensive cables, I have one of their line conditioners & again say it satisfies compeletly.
I'm building a new home theater setup and want to add a power conditioner, but I can't find any good reviews on which are best. With so many brands out there from monster to belkin pure, I hoping someone has some recommendations. I'll be hooking it up to a kuro plasma, HD cable, Sony receiver, Wii, Xbox360, PS3, and JBL sub. Looking for any good advice, I appreciate the help.
