Many types of power disturbances can affect your home theater experience. Power surges and AC power-line “noise” are common household occurrences that can damage your expensive audio video equipment and reduce the quality of your sound and picture. Also, as the population grows and the demand for power increases, power brownouts and blackouts are becoming more common. These sudden power losses can cause the loss of system settings and digital recordings. More importantly, sudden power loss leads to improper equipment shutdown, which ultimately results in damage to your valuable equipment.
