High-End Home Theater Systems Require High-End Surge Protection

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 5, 2006

Today’s home theater components and installations can represent a significant investment. With costs averaging in the thousands of dollars – and some times reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars – consumers must look to maximize their entertainment experience by protecting their investment over the long run. Understanding that extending the life of any electronic platform starts at the plug, Zero Surge, the leading manufacturer of patented series mode power quality filters, offers unparalleled powerline surge protection ideal for any home theater system.

For costly high-end home theater systems, nothing less than 100% surge protection with 0% failure should be considered; for that, turn to Zero Surge. For over 16 years, Zero Surge’s patented products have been providing unequalled, unfailing powerline surge protection for important applications. For the home theater, several Zero Surge series mode power quality filters are especially suitable, including the 8R15WI which offers isolated receptacles for the mixing of digital and analog products, the 8R15W and 8R15W-TWR tower model. For use in conventional entertainment centers and racks, the 1RM15WI and 1RM20WI rack mount units and the 1MOD15WI and 1MOD20WI modular units are ideal and stack well among additional components of the home theater system.

“All it takes is one power surge to ruin the investment of home theater owners,” noted Rudy Harford, Chief Engineer and President of Zero Surge. “Power surges happen more often than not and can range anywhere from a minimal ringwave to a 6,000 volt / 3,000 amp pulse, induced by a nearby lightning bolt. As power surges are out of sight and unpredictable, many consumers are unaware of or are not in tune to the protection that is available for their consumer electronics. With Zero Surge’s 100% surge protection, peace of mind is assured from the moment you plug in. Additionally, with each series mode power quality filter comes the performance and reliability that has become synonymous with the Zero Surge name, as each model has been certified for safety, performance and endurance by Underwriters Laboratories® (UL),” concluded Mr. Harford.

Unlike the competition that shunts excess surge energy to the “ground” wire and utilizes tiny, inexpensive metal oxide varistors (MOVs) to divert surge current, Zero Surge’s patented series mode power quality filters perform as a tranquillizer on the surge current and absorb even the most destructive strikes and dissipate them harmlessly over time, repeatedly. In addition, Zero Surge filters don’t contaminate the ground wire or use sacrificial components, which when used with home theater systems, can cause unwanted and annoying interference and noise.

MOV-based surge suppression systems can also be unsafe, as they have been linked to fires due to overheating. When hit with powerful surges, MOVs have been known to explode and burn, and with use, can deteriorate and completely lose their effectiveness with no outward sign of the degradation. Ensuring an added level of confidence, Zero Surge units don’t wear out, and each one comes with a 10-year limited warranty and a Lifetime Service Agreement.

“Why play Russian Roulette with your expensive large screen televisions and home audio systems?” asks Harford. “For just an incremental cost of your investment, Zero Surge’s series mode power quality filters will give you peace of mind, and allow you to enjoy your home theater system for many years.”

Zero Surge’s series mode power quality filters are available for purchase online at www.zerosurge.com or by calling 1-800-996-6696.

Zero Surge Inc. manufactures, non-degrading power quality filters, certified by UL for safety, endurance and performance. In business since 1989, the company’s patented filters eliminate the surge damage and equipment loss often experienced with sacrificial MOV (metal oxide varistor) type surge suppressors. Zero Surge Inc. has over 50 models accommodating a wide range of applications. Corporations, medical operations, universities, ocean vessels, the U.S. military and government, manufacturing plants, banks, utilities, and homeowners are just some of the customers relying on Zero Surge filters. The products do not contain sacrificial MOVs which wear out with use, can fail, and have caused fires.
