The Panamax MAX 7500-PRO improves picture and sound quality through its power filtration capabilities. Its 720VA isolation transformer provides power for digital source components or displays. AC regeneration through electromagnetic coupling between the primary and secondary windings of the transformer allows only clean, pure AC power to reach equipment. Noise generated by digital source components is isolated and prevented from reaching A/V components over power cords.
Tripp Lite’s HTRL15UPS Line-Interactive Digital UPS System ($349.95 MSRP) offers voltage regulation, surge suppression and battery support for home theater and media center components. Its rotatable LCD display indicates input voltage, battery capacity and a variety of operating conditions, and can regulate brownouts and overvoltages from 75V to 147V back to usable levels without consuming battery power. It includes eight UPS battery-supported outlets, USB port and DB9 serial port. Also included is USB, phone and coax cabling and mounting hardware.
Furman Sound’s MAX In-Wall PowerKit-TL is an AC extension system developed by Panamax that is now available to Furman dealers. Used in conjunction with a Furman power conditioner, it allows for safe and discrete connection of remote equipment back to the system’s power conditioning unit. The four-component kit provides a power solution for remote display devices within a home theater system. Included is a Power Inlet Faceplate with a twistlock connector, a Power Outlet Faceplate (POF) for noise filtration, a 50-foot ground-rated in-wall power cable, and a 12-foot AC power cord that shields out noise.
