There is probably not a brand on the planet as well known as Monster. Love 'em or hate 'em, Monster has a storied history of making solid consumer-grade cables and power products that has recently allowed them to expand their product line to almost every facet of the consumer electronics marketplace. While they may be branching out into waters unknown (for Monster) with iPod accessories, screen cleaners, a music label, etc., their flagship power product, the AVS 2000 reviewed here, is classic Monster all the way.

The AVS 2000 is a very well-rounded power product providing virtually every feature the complex home theater needs, minus battery backup. The AVS 2000 is a surge suppressor, AC noise reducer and voltage stabilizer all in one and retails for the middle of the road price of $1,499.95. The AVS 2000 has a total of six outlets, four switched and two un-switched, located in the rear of the unit and color-coded to ensure the proper connections.  The AVS 2000 also comes equipped with a hard-wired, eight-foot Monster power cable, which is about as thick as a python and equally as stubborn. The front of the AVS 2000 is littered with flashy lights and three digital meters that indicate your system's incoming voltage, voltage correction and total amperage. The AVS 2000 is designed to provide your system with the appropriate 120 volts from a standard AC wall outlet by employing an internal transformer that can step up and boost the power output if the AVS 2000 senses sag between 80-140 volts. If the AVS 2000 senses a huge voltage swing that it cannot deal with, then it will shut your system down to better protect it from negative power effects.
