I just purchased a Monster Power conditioner HTS5100 from my local HiFi Place. I checked out the box and when I got it home I opened it and to my dismay it had been used. It clearly came from monster that way. I really just wanted good power protection and a way of hooking up my B&K Ref 20 so that I can use my Pronto for all of my products. Right now I have a repeater system but I always have to manually turn on my Panamax to get things up and running. So my question is- Is this a good purchase? I have seen more negative than positive on these products. I had planned to just swap it out and go forward. I need some REAL advice. I realize $699.00 is a lot to spend but I have a lot of gear and I want real protection with remote on/off capability.
