Mark. I feel strongly about the electrical supply to a home theater. While a UPS is useful for an orderly shutdown for a computer it has little use in a home theater. More important is spike protection and power smoothing.

My system has a constant voltage unit connected to a power smoothing unit that feeds all components. Before, the voltage swung from 125 to 110, and when other appliances (fridge, washer/dryer, etc.) kicked in there would be affects noted in the TV and sound. Junk coming down from the outside pole pig (neighbors’ electrical appliances kicking in) added to the degrading.

Best get a combo strip/line smoother such as Monster’s http://www.monstercable.com/power/linelist/Powerlist.asp?cat...
