    Was in a local B&M tonight and had a long look and salestalk about Monster Power conditioners. Are they really worth it? They were really pushing the 3500 (?) and teh PB1100..... Input anyone.........??

    Varied opinions on them. In my experience at least, there is an improvement in audio and video performance. Maybe the power in my neighborhood, but I could definitely tell a difference.

    Make sure you have a money-back return option if you don't see enough in it to make it worth your while.

    Not super hot on the Monster brand, but I did pick one up. Not sure what model #, but it was a hefty one as I have a big power amp.

    If nothing else, I lost my 60hz crawl through my TV... I *think* sound improvred, too....

    For me, I am happy....

    would you recommend something like that for an old house? i just moved into a place and when the AC is running the lights occasionally flicker. I have not tried using my HT with the ac on yet, could I do any damage?

    A brownout is one of the worst conditions for electronic equipment. Depending on the regularity and severity of the brownouts, a power conditioner may not be what you want. You may need to use some sort of UPS (uninterrupted power supply) to supply the power.
