2nd Review after 2 yrs of ownership 12/27/2012
This review is from: Tripp Lite HT10DBS Home Theater Surge Suppressor 10-outlet coax
10 outlets, plenty of connectivity i.e; Ethernet, coax, ph. line, wall mount, rack mount or stash behind your cabinet, super long power cord, lifetime warranty with equipment protection.
Unable to accommodate multiple power units.
I had originally rated this unit with 5*. After ownership of 2 years, it gets a 4* and here's why........
It handled my plasma, 135w (2ch) AVR, two small subs, BR player and some accessories with ease.
When I added an external power amp, the unit produced an annoying hum. By arranging the location of the plugs, having the AVR and amp plugs at opposite ends of the unit, the hum was reduced significantly but not eliminated.
Once I added a 2nd amp, there was no way to avoid the loud humming coming from the unit.
Solution, added the CMX-6 by Emotiva. Now my AVR and both amps are plugged into one unit with zero line noise.
I still use the HT10DBS because it's an awesome unit and offers great coverage for your gear, so this combined with the CMX-6, I have one happy set up.
For the record, the AVR is rated at 135w per ch with 2 channels driven, the amps are rated at 200wpc/3ch amp and 300wpc/2ch amp.
