The APC J10 12 Outlet Power Conditioner with Battery Backup offers excellent value protection for home theater systems. Surge protected outlets keep all components safe from damaging surges, spikes and even lightning. Noise filter banks reduce electromagnetic and radio frequency interference that can harm picture and sound quality. Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) keeps voltage levels steady to ensure safe operation during low and high voltage conditions. Battery backup power keeps the home theater on, protects expensive TV bulbs and saves recordings stored on a DVR when the power goes out.

The J10 provides battery backup power to maintain uninterrupted power for the home theater in the event of a power blackout. Battery backup power not only prevents interruptions in your entertainment, it also prevents lost pre-sets, lost information stored on a Digital Video Recorder (DVR), damaged hard drives, and premature projector bulb wear and tear.

Sequenced turn-on and off ensures that connected equipment is powered-up/down in the proper order and with the right amount of delay between the stages. It allows you to program a delay into the sequence between 0 and 10 seconds. This feature helps to eliminate any "popping" sounds coming from speakers when turning on the system. This delay feature also eliminates transients that can affect connected components, e.g. digital projectors.

Surge Protection
The J10 provides guaranteed protection against damaging surges, spikes and even lightning. The unit not only provides protection from surges traveling over AC power lines, but also protects against surges traveling over system data lines including COAX and telephone lines.
Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)
The J10 provides AVR which is engaged to correct low and high voltage conditions. In doing so, all equipment connected to the unit are protected against these undesired voltage fluctuations, thus, prolonging the life of the equipment. Low voltage conditions can also negatively impact video quality.
Isolated Noise Filter Banks (INFB)
The J10 provides INFB technology to eliminate electromagnetic and RF interference that can negatively impact sound and video quality. Each filter bank is electrically isolated from each other to prevent noise generated by one component from polluting other connected components.

AC-Powered Outlets
The outlets are arranged according to the type of filtering protection provided for a given application. They are split up into the following groups: Digital filter outlets, video filter outlets, analog filter outlets, and high current filter outlets.
DC Trigger Mini-Jack
When connected to a component acting as a DC trigger, that component controls turn on/off of the "delayed" outlet banks. The J10 also allows that DC signal to pass through to another connected component. The maximum input voltage for the DC Trigger is 30VDC.
LCD Display and Unit Customization

        Comments about APC J10 Home Theater Power Conditioner & Battery Backup:

        It does what a UPS should do. Only issue (which I am working with APC Tech Support On) is that you cannot turn off both the front panel LEDs and LCD Display simultaneously. This appears to be a software glitch that hopefully they will resolve. Wouldn't be an issue if the unit was in a cabinet, but since it is in full view, all the illumination is distracting when watching a video in a darkened room.

          Comments about APC J10 Home Theater Power Conditioner & Battery Backup:

          A few things to note:

          It is large; larger than my Yamaha receiver. The power cord is a heavy duty cord and needs a couple of inches to make a ninety degree bend, so including several inches free space behind the unit is a must.

          It is heavy; however leaving the battery out until the unit is in place helps.

          It gets warm. Adequate ventilation is a must.

          All that said, it is doing exactly what I expected it to do.

          Very satisfied

            Works well, although the setup instructions are a little less than clear (I still can't figure out how to change the default screen, but I can live with that).

                I live in a area where we have numerous power drops,& spikes, at the cost of these Hi Def TV's systems, this is a small price to pay for peace of mind. The APCJ10 has allowed continioue opperation even though we have had a lot of several seconds drop outs. I also use APC for our two computers. I have not found any Cons.
                Power switching is so fast that the TV does not even flicker!!
