    Basic question...in looking at higher end Monster and Panamax surge centers, they offer isolated digital and analog outlet banks.

    Good question. I assume “digital” means equipment with digital ins and outs; however modern receivers perform processing in the digital domain – kinda blurs the line, doesn’t it?

    With regards to the former, CD players, DVD players, sat receivers and digital cable boxes can have digital outs. However, the shield connections of their video (and analog audio) sends have continuity with the chassis, which means the digital and non-digital equipment will be connected electrically. So I really can’t see the point of isolating the outlets.
