Your home theater is only as good as its components, and one thing that makes the components’ work as well as they can is clean power. One offering now shipping that’s aimed to assist in that respect is Panamax’s MAX 7500-PRO, which the company says is designed to protect against quality-degrading electromagnetic interference (EMI), radio frequency interference (RFI), digital noise, and ground loops for the home theater market.
According to Panamax, key features of the MAX 7500-PRO include: advanced filtration, ground isolation, remote diagnostics (IP-ready with optional Ethernet card), voltage regulation, balanced power meters, Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM), additional high-current outlets, autodimming meters, protection for Cable Access Television (CATV), telephone, and Local Area Networks (LANs), as well as a 12-volt trigger, USB light, and rack ears.
A power filtration system featuring a 720VA isolation transformer, which provides power for digital source components or displays, serves as the device’s catalyst, says Panamax. Along with blocking surges, the isolation transformers provide extra protection by isolating the power fed into the primary winding of the transformer from the energy sent out on the second winding, meaning no EMI or RFI contamination can pass through them.
SRP for the MAX 7500-PRO is $1,999.95. Go to www.panamax.com for more details.
