The High Definition Power Center HDP 1800 is a bold combination of design, advanced engineering, and convenient functionality. This new PowerCenter design delivers the advanced protection and performance that home theater enthusiasts expect. The HDP 1800 gives your delicate HDTV and digital AV electronics the advanced protection they need. For a triple layer of safety, the HDP 1800 protects against power surges and spikes on all three power lines (line, neutral, ground). With over 5526 Joules of surge absorption capacity, the HDP 1800 provides a very high level of protection. T2 automatically disconnects the PowerCenter itself and your equipment from both live power lines (line and neutral), and reconnects ONLY when power levels are safe. Unlike other surge protectors, T2 will NOT sacrifice itself when a potentially damaging power overload hits, and keeps on protecting with no reduction in performance. Cell phones, TVs, appliances, and other electronics all generate noise and interference that pollute your home's electricity. This dirty power can degrade picture and sound performance. Dirty power can also stress the delicate digital circuitry inside HDTVs and other home theater components, potentially shortening their life. However, ordinary surge protectors can't remove the effects of dirty power. The HDP 1800 features advanced Monster Clean Power HD Stage 2 filtration that's precision-engineered to remove the effects of dirty power for better picture and sound. In addition, by minimizing noise and interference, HD Clean Power filtration reduces unnecessary wear to the sensitive digital circuitry in today's high definition home theater components. Additionally, the HDP 1800 has ground loop isolation on cable connections to reduce noise and interference that can affect your HDTV's picture. The HDP 1800 is also PLC (power line communications) compatible, allowing you to set up a home AV network using existing AC power lines. There's no need to run cables inside walls or along molding. The HDP 1800 High Definition Power Center wraps all this advanced functionality in a compact, ultra-sleek silver chassis with a new butterfly style faceplate design.
