The power coming through AC power outlets is full of interference and line disturbances that cause hum, buzz, and static, degrading your home theater's audio and video performance. In addition, electronic appliances, cell phones, and even home theater components all generate electronic noise that further affects your home theater sound and picture. The detrimental effects of "dirty" AC power cannot be removed by ordinary surge protectors. Monster Clean Power Circuitry Stage 2 filters provide excellent AC power line noise rejection and isolation of audio and video equipment for component-generated noise rejection. When you connect your home theater components to a Monster HTS 1000 MKIII PowerCenter you'll get the best possible picture and sound from your components with a more natural sound, increased dynamic range, and the most vivid video images possible. Common power surges, spikes, and dips can easily damage sensitive electronics in your home theater's AV components. The problem is even worse if you live in an area plagued by lightning or power blackouts. Extremely high voltages can travel through the power line, seriously damaging or even destroying your components. The Monster HTS 1000 MKIII features over 6125 Joules of extreme protection that can absorb powerful surges and spikes. Unlike ordinary surge protectors, advanced Monster PowerCenters also actively monitor incoming power and automatically disconnect your valuable equipment before damage occurs. The HTS 1000 MKIII provides surge protection that goes far beyond competing surge protectors, with patented T2 Automatic Disconnect/Reconnect circuitry previously found only in Monster Power's chassis power conditioners selling for hundreds of dollars more. Microprocessor controlled T2 circuitry, a Monster Power exclusive, not only protects your AV equipment, but protects your PowerCenter as well. Unlike ordinary surge protectors which only use MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistors) for surge absorption, the HTS 1000 MKIII's T2 protection circuitry automatically disconnects the PowerCenter and all of your connected AV equipment when it senses dangerous power conditions, completely isolating them from potentially damaging sags, spikes, and surges. T2 continues to actively monitor power conditions, then automatically reconnects when AC power returns to normal. In addition, Monster's Tri-Mode protection circuitry incorporates an audible alarm that will tell you when your PowerCenter has protected your AV system from damage. With "brownouts" and other power irregularities becoming increasingly common, the built-in precision Digital LED Voltmeter continuously displays the incoming line voltage so you can readily identify the source of power trouble. The HTS 1000 MKIII also has patented color-coded outlets that are specially labeled for home theater components, and color-coded tags for their power cords. You'll also appreciate the convenient extra-long heavy duty power cord. Best of all, the ultra-compact FlatProfile plug cuts wasted space and lets you put your furniture flat against the wall. Simply put, the Monster HTS 1000 MKIII has features that no other power product has. All of a component's inputs and outlets need to be protected, or the entire system will be vulnerable. Often missed are telephone lines and cable and satellite connections, which can carry dangerous power surges and spikes to your equipment. The Monster HTS 1000 MKIII features comprehensive protection with coax, network and phone connections for satellite, TiVo, cable, and HDTV protection.
