My old "Panamax 1000+" power center got toasted and now I am trying to determine the BEST power source to purchase (Monster??) and HOW to connect my equipment (switched, always on, delayed, etc). I live in New York, in an area with constant power fluctuations, disruptions, over and under voltages, etc. You name it, and I get it! ANY assistant will be GREATLY appreciated. Here is my HUMBLE equipment list: #1 - Scientific Atlanta Explorer 2000 Digital Home Communications Terminal (Cable Box) #2 - Sony SLHF-600 "Betamax" VCR (yeah, I know) . . . #3 - Panasonic PV-9664 Omnivision VHS VCR #4 - Nakamichi MB-2 CD Player #5 - Pioneer DVL-919 DVD / Laserdisc player #6 - Marantz SR-18U AV Surround Receiver #7 - Bang & Olufsen RX turntable #8 - NAD PP-1 Phono Preamp #9 - Velodyne HGS10B6 subwoofer Previously, my equipment was connected as follows: #1 - Separate surge protected outlet (not part of the Panamax unit) #2 - "Always On" Panamax outlet #3 - Interconnected to an outlet on the rear of equipment item #6 #4 - "Switched By Master" Panamax outlet #5 - "Switched By Master" Panamax outlet #6 - "Always On" Panamax outlet #7 - "Switched By Master" Panamax outlet #8 - "Delayed Turn On" Panamax outlet #9 - "Switched By Master" Panamax outlet The Panamax unit itself was connected similarly to #1 (separate surge protected outlet) and the Panamax "master control" plug was connected similarly to #3 (an outlet on the rear of equipment item #6). Two (2) coaxial inputs / outputs for FM radio and cable TV service respectively were also utilized on the Panamax unit. All of this feeds my Energy RVSS, AC-300 and A 5+2 speakers and Loewe ART 736 MB01 digital television. I was looking at some of the higher end "AVS" & "HTS" (reference and signature) Monster devices but, I know that there are people here that are far more knowledgeable than me, and can tell me the definitive way to proceed, so please do so! Thank you VERY much.
