Maybe the last, but not the least

Chances are, you were impressed — if not dazzled — by some of the features offered by your new flat-panel HDTV. Picture quality aside, however, you enjoyed learning that your $1,500+ investment offered a panel life somewhere between 60,000 and 100,000 hours. In other words, you could expect to enjoy clear, sharp, detailed HD viewing for somewhere between 32 and 54 years at 5 hours of viewing per day. However, there are forces in this world that are out to sabotage your new home theater, and not just your HDTV, but everything from your receiver to your telephone. What are these dark and insidious foes? Answer: power surges. While they look sturdy on the outside, on the inside all electronic devices are constructed of delicate electronic components — parts that can be easily damaged by power irregularities. Luckily, any risk of damage can be easily avoided by regulating the power source fueling your home theater. Here's where the M8-AV-PRO surge protector and line conditioner enters the equation . . . the last, but maybe the most important investment you'll make.

Stop surges dead in their tracks

Power irregularities like electrical surges damage home A/V devices when they come into contact with those devices' internal components. Preventing damage is as simple as stopping surges before they reach your components . . . as simple as the M8-AV-PRO from Panamax. Combining Automatic Voltage Monitoring and Protect or Disconnect circuitry, the M8-AV-PRO brings your home theater an advanced level of power-surge protection. Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM) circuitry continuously monitors the incoming line voltage. As soon as a power irregularity is detected, Protect and Disconnect technology instantly and automatically disconnects your equipment from the power source, impeding any infiltration. Further, once AVM technology detects that the incoming voltage has returned to safe levels, it reconnects equipment to the power source. Achieve advanced protection for your investments.

No matter the source

Now, surges don't just attack your devices using power cables. Power irregularities can enter and damage components via other connections like cable/satellite cables, telephone lines, and ethernet cables. Thanks to its diverse array of connections, the M8-AV-PRO protects a wide range of devices. Eight AC outlets protect everything from your HDTV to your DVD player, two coaxial input/output pairs protect cable and satellite boxes, and two telephone/ethernet jacks protect devices like telephones, computers, and home networks.

Beyond protection

While power surges present a serious threat of damage to home A/V components, there's another home-theater enemy, one that preys on your system's level of performance. As you might imagine, all home A/V components use electricity to operate, both in the form of power input and as audio and video signals. Unfortunately, the electricity that enters your home often has some degree of "noise", or interference. Accordingly, when that electricity is used to power your home theater, its natural interference disrupts A/V signal quality, possibly causing a loss of overall detail in audio or video signals. Ensuring that your home theater experience is fueled by clean, low-noise power, the M8-AV-PRO offers premium noise filtration, removing electrical interference and helping to deliver high-fidelity audio and video signals. As an added measure, the M8-AV-PRO's four AC outlets are divided into two banks, eliminating cross-interference within the unit itself.
