my parents have been bugging me about this for a long time, but I have so little experience with it that I have put off giving them an answer. A while back, I gave them my B&K 7270 SII, DMC-1 and LSi speakers. They understand the cost of them (or rather, the cost of replacing them) and want to protect the electronics as best they can. They have a quite unusual circumstance with the power in their house.
As the story goes, the previous owners wife had issues with electronics. For some odd reason (there might have been a reason but I have since forgot), computers and other electronic devices would act up around her and end up dying. This was apparently bad enough for her employer to allow her to work from home. Whether the story is true or if the house just has poor wiring, I don't know. But their house continues to have electrical issues (random spikes, outages when no one else has them, wall warts burning up, ect.)
They want some sort of protection for their gear. It would need to cover the amp, pre/pro, 2 lsi 25s, and a HTPC.
Any suggestions that don't break the bank?
