    There must be thousands of possible surge protectors on the market. What distinguishes this one is its ability to turn off ancillary equipment when you turn off the main component, whether that s a computer or a home theater receiver.

    Plug your receiver or computer into the "master" outlet, and when you turn it off, the surge protector also turns off your printer and backup hard drive--or your Blu-ray player, your subwoofer etc.

    There are a few so-called energy efficient surge protectors on the market--reviews on Amazon suggest that some of them don t work all that well in sensing when the master component is turned off. For this particular unit, you simply hook everything up and then press a button that registers the amount of current that is flowing to your master component when it s off or on standby. And then it works perfectly for your particular system--or at least it does with MY system. I have it set up with Carver Audio separate stereo components as the master. An XM tuner and an Infinity subwoofer are set to be turned off when I turn off the pre-amp. Perfectly consistent performance over the month or so since I ve had it.

    High end audio equipment often has a 12 volt lead that can do the same thing, assuming that ALL of your equipment is designed to work with a 12 volt lead. This surge protector works exactly the same as a 12 volt lead, except it doesn t require that that feature be built in, and doesn t require yet another cable.

    The other features that make this surge protector unusual are its shape, which fits well behind an audio receiver, and that it has a relatively high joule rating. All in all, it s a great product.
