But maybe something from APC or Furman or another company with real engineering behind them. It won't kill your sound quality as some audiophiles suggest, unless maybe you have some big monoblock amps involved, then it could be a problem. An APC H15 is a good place to start I'd say - under $300, lots of filtering and protection, and even voltage regulation too. It's got most of the features of my $1500 APC S15 but without the big price tag.
Thanks for this post. I was going to ask about a Surge protector for my V200. Is the APC H15 good enough to use with the VEGA/TAURUS if I decide to purchase those?
Rats, I just looked up the H15 and it has been discontinued. I will see if I can find it on amazon.
