I'm really confused about this issue, and would like some advice. How can I protect my home theater from power surges and the like? I've searched around the net for these kind of products, and I simply don't know what to buy. There are surge protectors, power centers, etc. I'm looking mostly at Monster's products. I don't have the money right now to buy those hundreds-of-dollars-reference-power-centers, but maybe something on the range of $100. I have a Sony 36XBR450, a Sony Dream System, and a DirecTV box. I have them all on a cheap power surge protector. Thanks for all your advice.
