Home Theatre Reference PowerCenter HTS 2600 is Monster's affordable rack-mount PowerCenter for the serious home theater enthusiast on a budget. HTS 2600 features Monster Clean Power Stage 2 filters, three patented discrete filter sections (ultra-high current audio, video and low current audio) and a remote activation circuit for auto turn-on of switched/time outlets HTS 2600 comes with an extra-long high current 8ft PowerLine™ 200 High Current Power Cable.
This PowerCenter HTS 2600 features special surge protection for phone lines and coax cables used for DSS, DIVX /DVD and cable TV connections.
Other surge protectors can result in as much as 20 to 30dB of signal loss, which ultimately affects the output performance of coax connections. Monster's ultra-low loss RF circuitry provides virtually no signal loss to maintain peak performance. Best of all, an audible surge alarm and visual surge indicator warn you of harmful surges and let you know you're getting the most advanced protection available.

Monster PowerCenters make life easier.
Monster makes the management of all your power connections easier with eight color-coded outlets and corresponding cord labels. Switched and unswitched outlets provide convenience, and allow the personalizing of how you "manage" your audio system. The HTS 2600 even has specific outlets designed to maximize the Monster Clean Power "AC noise filtering" based on the type of high or low current different components use. And finally, Monster gives you a generous eight-foot current capacity power cord, which is the optimum length to reach most AC power outlets. Maximize your system's performance and protection. Enhanced system performance with component-specific power filtering...protection from polluted AC power, surges, spikes and inconvenience! Monster's Home Theatre PowerCenters meet the high performance demands of today's discriminating audiophile.
SurgeGuard protects components from harmful surges and spikes.
Harmful power surges and voltage spikes can travel up the AC power line and damage connected equipment. Lightning, automatic garage doors, power tools, refrigerators and fluorescent lights all cause power surges and voltage spikes that affect phone lines and coax cables. Monster's SurgeGuard detects harmful power surges and voltage spikes before they reach components.
"Polluted" AC power can degrade the audiophile performance you expect from your home theatre components. Unless you live directly behind Hoover Dam, your AC power is most likely "polluted" by appliances sharing the same power line with your home theatre components. Electrical power tools, refrigerators, air conditioners, radio transmitter, cellular phones, microwave ovens, even your neighbor's freezer, all generate electromagnetic interference and radio frequency noise which pollutes the AC power and degrades audio and video performance. Even your other home theatre components generate noise interference-adding more "pollution" to your AC power. As a result, you'll hear a loss of dynamic range and resolution with a compressed soundstage and imprecise imaging. You'll see less color detail and sharpness in your TV picture quality. And you'll never know how much of the essential drama is gone in the high performance picture and sound your home theatre was designed to deliver.
Monster's Clean Power Circuitry filters "pollution" on the AC power for improved sonic performance and picture resolution. Designed by world-renowned AC power expert Richard Marsh, Monster's Clean Power Circuitry employs special non-resonant filters to reduce RF, EMI and other distortions on your AC power line. The results give you dramatic improvements in sonic performance and picture resolution. Your music and sound will seem to emerge from a "blacker" background, rather than a "gray area." Midrange textures become more liquid and balanced. A sweeter and brighter treble sweeps the high end without harshness or a metallic character. Sound staging improves with greater transparency, tighter image focus and a well-rendered soundstage depth. Your picture resolution will be sharper with less color shift. In the end, you'll get all the performances you paid for...and isn't that what it's all about?
