I live in a horrible area that I keep getting power surges. I had a nice batter back-up on my system that has surge protection. It was also connected to an actual surge strip as well. About a month ago we took a nice hit because Florida Power can't provide decent service. Anyways, all the batter back-ups in the house were fried and some of the surge strips were killed in the hit. It was just an average day, no storms nor lightning. Just Florida Power at their worst. Anyways, I really want to get a good surge suppressor and I dont know a whole too much about what I'm looking for. Nor, do I undstand what exactly I'm getting into with the whole situation. I've tried to do a little bit of research... But to no avail. If anyone knows of a good place to start. Please let me know. As of now, the only things I have looked into is the Adcom units. They have two models the ACE-315 and ACE-615. I'm aware that Monster also makes a few models and there are some really high grade units I have seen through mail order catelogs. To be completely honest, I dont know what I'm getting into. I would like to find a good suppressor that has some kind of voltage regulation that will be a good protector from Florida Power's frequent mishaps. I would like to spend somewhere in the neighborhood of $500 for a good unit that will protect my Receiver, 2 DVD Players and my LD Player. I already had one Pioneer LD Player die on me from a surge about a year and a half ago. Blew the diode cap and fuses inside the unit. Luckily it was still under warranty at the time, but it has long since ran out now. I would like to never have that happen to any of my Home Theater again ;P Well, please give me any advice as to what I should look into and where to get some great info about these surge suppressors.
