Home Theater ProtectionPower surges, lightning, and the normal distortion in the current from wall outlets can destroy your home theater system. When these events take place, it's already too late to protect your equipment. Protecting you investment should be one of your main priorities while creating your home theater system.
Surge ProtectionThe benefits of surge protectors are two fold; they protect the connections into your home theater system and they provide a central location for all of your power connections. Lightning strikes or power company overloads can create surges that could fry your gear. Surge protectors sacrifice themselves to save your equipment and are designed to be the weakest link in the chain from the power source to your equipment, and include circuit breakers or fuses that immediately sever the connection when a large electrical spike hits. If all your audio/video gear is plugged into a surge protector with AC outlets, you might think your system is protected. But these power spikes can also come into your home through your phone line, your cable TV line, and your satellite signal line. You'll want to make sure the power protection device you choose can accommodate all of the lines that connect to your system.
Line ConditioningA power protection component with line conditioning can remove most of this interference, allowing your system to perform at its full potential. Electromagnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI and RFI) won't fry your A/V gear, but they can hinder its performance. Devices with digital inputs and outputs, such as DVD players, receivers and LCD TVs, seem especially susceptible to "dirty power." Line Conditioners contain metal oxide varistors (MOVs), which are most widely used for absorbing the energy of spikes and surges.
