Monster™ Power Home Theatre Reference Power Center HTS 2000 MKII



Product Description

Developed by Richard Marsh: Monster Clean Power circuitry was designed by Richard Marsh, a world leading designer of ultra-high performance audiophile power circuits.

Stage 2 v. 2.0 Clean Power Circuitry: This circuitry provides higher current, superior grade filtering for audiophile quality sound and a better picture. It isolates audio components from video components to improve their performance.

Tri-mode Circuitry: A Tri-mode AC overvoltage auto disconnect safety feature prevents catastrophic, high-voltage power disturbances from damaging components.

High-current Audio Filter: The isolated high-current filter is optimized for maximum noise rejection, while providing maximum current to high-current audio components.

Audio Filter: The switched outlets have a special filter that reduces audible noise in your audio components.

Video Interference Reduction Filter: The unswitched outlets have a special filter that reduces interference with your video components. 

Dual Digital LED Meter: Separate LED meters display the incoming voltage and your system's total current draw in Amps.

Remote DC Control: This feature provides an on/off trigger for the HTS 2000 MKII using a 3-30VDC remote control signal. Many components have a 12VDC trigger built-in and will transmit a constant power signal when turned on and in use. When you turn the component on, the HTS 2000 MKII's switched outlets will turn on immediately. The Remote DC Control input uses a standard 1/8" mini-plug jack.

Power Surge Alerts: An audible alarm and visual surge indicator alert you when a surge has occurred.

Color-coded Outlet Tabs: Each component connection is color-coded for easy identification. The supplied self-adhesive cord labels prevent you from accidentally disconnecting the wrong cord.

Power Cord: The unit features an 8' high-current PowerLine 200 power cord with 24k gold-plated contacts for maximum power transfer. The "FlatProfile" right-angle plug design protrudes less than 1" from wall socket to allow room for furniture placement near wall.

Wall Mounting: Keyhole slots on the back panel allow you to wall mount the HTS2000 MKII using optional screws.

$250,000.00 Connected Equipment Warranty: For a period of 5 years from the purchase date, Monster Cable will replace, or, at its option, pay to repair or pay the fair market value of equipment that is damaged by an AC power, cable, telephone, or lightning surge while properly connected to the surge protector. Every wire leading into or out of the equipment must be connected properly to the surge protector and the unit must be connected to a properly grounded 3-wire outlet or the warranty will be invalid. Conditions and information on how to make a claim are included in the manual.
