    Well, if you are talking surge protector, I compared the monster vs the one i bought, the tripplite tlp810sat.
    I dont know anything about surge protectors but looking at the joule ratings- tripplite is rated 2,398 joules compared to monsters mere 900 joules.
    Joules - Joules rating deals with the maximum electrical energy that protective circuits can handle. A term that is used to rate surge protection equipment - the higher numerical Joule rating, the greater protection against electrical surges
    Im not sure if I bought the TLP810SAT or the TLP810NET without getting behind the TV & looking, but they are similar.
    I purchased from JANDR.COM when they had it on sale for like $30- took a while to get here but I was glad to throw some business their way.

    I know the joules rating on the monster power center isnt that great, but they claim to have some sort of audio filter that filters the crap out of the power. Ive read several places that these are supposed to be effective for cleaning up bad power. Anyone own one?

    Alex,

    My Mits rptv and Scientific Atlantic Explorer 2000HD cable box are plugged into a Monster Power HTS1000. This has Stage 2 filtering. I noticed a very small increase in clarity on my cable feed but it help reduced some hum in my system. My new Mondial MAGIC box should take care of the rest.

    My other audio gear is plugged into PS Audio power products, expensive but well worth it.
