I decided it was time to finally take the plunge and step up from my basic power strips , I decided on a Monster HTS 2600. The HTS-2600 retails for $349 but I bought mine off of Ebay for considerably less. Its a basic piece of equipment that absorbs mild power surges and cleans unwanted noise out of the power. Most important to me is that is serves as a place to connect all of my equipment to and it looks cool. I'll tell you the truth, i'd never have bought one of these at the full MSRP but after seeing it in person and using it , I now wish i'd bought one earlier. I have owned alot of HT gear and not too often do I run across something build so nicely, the inside and bottom of the case is painted a nice glossy black, the front is thick brushed aluminum , thicker than anything Denon , Sony , Yamaha or other mid-fi component makers put out. You only see this sort of quality on higher end stuff like Bryston, Krell and B&K. The front left has a LED amp gauge and the from right has a LED volt gauge which after some testing are pretty accurate , although the increments are not enough to get exact numbers which is nice because who wants some flashing LEDs on there rack? The LEDs are bright and neat looking and the Moster Power Center looks nice in my rack. The 2600 has three boards, on the left is the power protection board, on the right is the EMI/RF board and the small one is the control board. You can see on the Cyber Power strip that the board is all one unit. The pictures don't do this thing justice, its built very nicely. BTW the 2500 is pretty much the same except its $50 cheaper and does not have the Amp and Volt meters. If your looking for a nicely build power center then you cannot go wrong with the one.
