Advancements in technology have brought faster, higher definition products that are capable of processing large amounts of data but are also quite sensitive to the components that drive them. Too little power and these devices will not function at an optimum level, too much power and these devices can be damaged beyond repair.
The Ups and Downs of Power
AC Power by nature is ever-changing, appliances turning on and off in your home causes voltages to surge and spike, and this is sometimes noticeable in the form of lights suddenly dimming. This causes a state of flux for the power running your delicate electronic devices, lowering the performance of the audio/video as well as causing damage to the components. Other conditions such as power outages and lightning strikes only increase this fluctuation. Proper connection to an advanced surge protector that offers integrated system protection can help minimize the risk of permanent surge damage...
Protection You Can Rely On
Unlike standard surge protectors, the Monster PowerCenter HT 800 with SurgeGaurd provides protection against harmful surges and spikes by strategically placed mulitple Metal Oxide Varasitors that respond within one nanosecond to power surges and voltage spikes, your equipment is well protected from damage. Combine this protection with Monster's ultra-low loss RF circuitry and signal loss is minimized on coax connections, providing your components with peak performance for signal from RF sources. Generic surge protectors can have as much as 20 to 30 dB of signal loss which ultimately affects the output performance of coax connections.
Keeping it Clean
Fluctuations in power are bad enough for proper electronic devices functionality; add the noise pollution in power lines created by the appliances in your home and outside interference, and protection is only the beginning of the requirement.
Electrical power tools, refrigerators, air conditioners, radio transmitters, cell phones- all generate electromagnetic interference and radio frequency noise which pollutes AC power.
The pollution in the power line has an adverse effect on the performance of electronic devices, preventing them from performing at at an optimum level. Video will not be as crisp and jittery; audio will sound unclear and accurate to the point of even having noticeable levels of buzzes and noise. Monster's Clean Power circuitry filters out power pollution by utilizing special filters to dramatically reduce electronic noise on your AC power line. You'll see a more vivid picture and hear more natural sound with increased dynamic range and less noise giving back the performance you never knew you lost...
Making Life Easier
In addition to protecting your valuable electronics, Monster PowerCenter provides convenience for connecting and placement generic surge protectors cannot. The FlatProfile plug allows for furniture to be flush with your walls, and the color-coded labeled outlets let you know just what is connected, no more unplugging the wrong device. All this combines with a generous 8-foot powered cord, ensuring that no wall outlet is out of reach...
Peace of Mind
With Monster PowerCenter HT 800 you can rest easy knowing that if something should go wrong, your connected equipment is protected by Monsters Connected Equipment Warranty. That is something you cannot find on a generic power strip...
Customer Reviews of Monster-Power HT 800 Home Theater PowerCenter w/ Clean Power Stage 1
Product is awesome, I have been using it for a few weeks now and I have been totally impressed by my experience with it. I connected my TV, laptop, sound bar to it and even ran my cable through it and I have had no problems what so ever. Will definitely recommend it.
Great product and value1/1/2014
Couldn't be happier with this power center. Nicely color coordinated and an extra long cord to give a nice range. A super bonus was the coax connection. I had trouble getting one of the over-the-air channels and it seems this product cleans up or boosts the signal a bit. Every channel now comes in clear as a bell.
I've been a fan of Monster products for years and this does not disappoint. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for some added protection for their electronics. It has plenty of outlets that are well labeled so plugs don't get confused. I'm not sure if this comes with a monster insurance policy or not but I think it will do the job just fine.
Affordable Power center with nice features8/10/2013
The price was right so I bought two units!!! Nice spacing of outlets, color coding is helpful for keeping track of plugs. Enough outlets for most home theater/ TV set ups plus a few extra plugs. Have not noticed a "cleaner picture" as a result of using this, but maybe my AC power was clean to begin with. Had a situation last week where the power surged on and off multiple times and the unit handled it with no problems.
Had our brand new 50" TV fry because even though it was plugged into a surge protector, the cable coax wasn't. Who knew? TV was under warranty, got a new cable box & now the coax goes to the surge protector BEFORE it goes to the cable box. Life is good.
Colorfully labeled, this surge protector like power strip is very easy to use to coordinate all your electronic devices. It takes the guesswork out of which plug goes to what device.
Lasted all of 5 minutes but did its job protecting8/22/2011
Well I've just joined the 21st century with a home theatrre purchase and was plugging in all my equipment when the last item my turntable shorted out the Monster MP HT800 and off went the LED TV, my Denon Receiver, Turntable, LG bluray, and the HTPC. Luckly only the Monster Surge protector died. Plugged everything back into an old Surge protector while ordering a 2nd Monster. Everything is working fine no damage to any of the Home Theatre items.
Wish I had 2 more!7/13/2011
I live in a house with not one grounded outlet. I love my electronics and also have medical equipment that needs surge protection. I do think it might help with TV signals, as it states it 'cleans' up connections. Plus it has a warranty for anything plugged into it. This item is great it's color coded for specific items but of course you can use anything you like. I do wish the cord was longer. In a normal house it would be fine but in mine I need more units to reach everything I need to ground.
