View Full Version : Monster Power HTS 1600 Feedback
02-08-2009, 11:24 AM
I went to CC and saw that Monster Power HTS 1600 for $99, so I checked other websites, and was nearly $200, so I just bought it.
My Marantz every time I turn it on, I get some video noise, and sometimes seeing a movie appears again. Im not sure how good is this HTS1600, but removes all that noise, and the audio and video are more clear.
Some people says it doenst makes any difference, but I really noticed. Any one has same impressions?

I have the Monster HTS1600 also and I love simply for the piece of mind that my equipment is protected not to mention they are all getting CLEAN power.
As far as your Marantz receiver, make sure you have it plugged into the High Current outlets on the 1600 and you should be fine.
Some people noticed a big improvement in audio and video when hooking up their equipment to a power conditioner but I didn't. I think those people that notice a difference either live in old house/apts or they just don't have clean wiring somewhere.
Still, if you have spent your hard earned money on your audio/video gear, getting one of these Monster power conditioners is a good investment, especially at $99! You got it for a great price. :)

Im a fan of CLEAN power, I run the MK7000 and 3500. Both perform well.

I put my receiver in the receiver outlet, not in the high current. I will switch it. Where do I put my subwoofer? BTW for me its not a GREAT Improvement because I dont have problems with grounds here, but I really noticed a clear sound, and sharper image. Thanks for feedbacks.

Plug your sub into the receiver outlet although I think I read somewhere that the sub should be plugged into a seperate outlet from the Monster power conditioner altogether. I could be wrong though so hopefuly someone here will confirm.

I've had the HTS 1600 for about a year so far, no problems with it yet.
I also have the HTS 2000, but since that one is just a giant power strip, it doesn't look to well placed on a shelf.

Should I have to turn off HTS1600 before sleep or when not in use, or can I have it on 24x7?
