    Just curious if anyone could give some feedback on the Trippe Lite LCR2400. It seems to do the same as the Monster AVS2000 but at a fraction of the cost. definitely has the power output to handle a hungry HT. Here's a link.

    do you have problems with your incoming voltage that would require such a unit?

    Well that's a tough call and if there's nothing wrong with your current electrical power, then it remains to be seen what putting this into your system would do. Kind of like taking tylenol and you don't have a headache or putting premium gas into a low compression engine. It doesn't hurt and it stimulates the economy but maybe there are better ways of improving your existing system. Acoustic improvements?

    When we were going through brown out hell, my preamp kept losing synch. I determined it was because the voltage dropped and bought a smaller triplite to feed my preamp. Never had a problem after I hooked it up.
    I highly recommend it.
