APC H15 overview

  • 1Description

The APC H15 Power Conditioner will protect your high performance audio and video (A/V) system from damaging power surges, spikes and lightning. Protection is guaranteed. Isolated noise filter banks will eliminate EMI/RFI as a source of audio and video signal degradation. Data-line surge protection jacks will stop surges traveling over phone and modem or DSL lines. Digital Satellite System, Cable Modem, and CATV Coaxial Cable lines are equally protected.

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 12 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 H15 provides a high level of surge protection for the voltage going into the unit, and additionally, surge protected coax/radio frequency (RF) connectors are protected against surges traveling over coaxial lines to protect your digital satellite system (DSS), CATV box, or cable modem. The telephone line surge protection provides a protected splitter to allow output to a telephone, modem, DSL, fax, DVR, DSS system, set-top internet service provider (such as WebTV), or pay-per-view cable TV function.
Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)
The H15 is unique in that it provides AVR, which is engaged to correct low and high voltage conditions. In doing so, all equipment connected to the H15 are protected against these undesired voltage fluctuations, thus, prolonging the life of the equipment.
Isolated Noise Filter Banks (INFB)
The H15 provides INFB technology to eliminate electromagnetic and RF interference that can negatively impact sound and video quality.

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 H15 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
The LCD displays important information including voltage in (line voltage) and voltage out, frequency, and load. Additionally, the LCD is used to program features such as the delay or dimmer settings.
Removable Support Feet
Feet can be unscrewed and removed to save space when rack mounting.

    APC H15 reviews

    H15 Home Theater Power Conditioner is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have if you live in an old building in NYC When you read blog posts about this product and people say it makes a difference to the sound, you think how could this make a difference? It does make a difference if you live in an area with power fluctuations. (I'm in NYC and live in an older 1920's building.) I mainly bought this for my audio equipment. The sound improvement is incredible. I have a feeling the capacitors were not getting a full change before. The set up was easy and I can't image living with out the H15. Also, as an experiment, I decided to plug in my modem out of curiosity. It has not needed a reset in 3 weeks, a record for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stabilizes fluctuating house voltage! This unit is at the front end of my home theater system. I was having HDCP/HDMI handshake issues for over 9 months and replaced several pieces of equipment without resolving the issue. I had noticed power sags in our utility line voltage--this works as described. It boosts or trims the incoming voltage as appropriate. I would swear that everything works just a bit crisper including the AV receiver sound processing--but I can say that at least for now, the handshake issues are gone. Regardless, with the ability to monitor input voltage and output voltage, I am secure in knowing that I am getting a stable source of power.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does its job I have 2 of these units - one in my HT setup and one in my dedicated music system. The music system has 2 Class A amps one connected to the amplifier output and the other connected to the subwoofer output on the APC unit. Besides those, I have 2 preamps, a TT, phono preamp, a computer and external HDD all powered by the APC. With everything running, the load was no more than 30%. My amps sound terrible when hooked to current-limiting audiophile power conditioners (which is why had them going directly to the wall outlet before the APC was here), but the APC does nothing to the sound which is exactly what I expect. When my amps come on, the lights dim. With the APC, they still do but less. Voltage regulation kicks in. Previously I had spent close to a thousand dollars on audiophile power conditioners and now I feel like an idiot for doing that. I wish they had the same model without the other stuff like cable tv inputs, modem etc but more outlets instead. Not a big deal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean Power, No Problems I've used the APC H15 for about five years now in my upstairs home entertainment system. I've never heard a hiss, crackle or pop from the speakers. The display lets me know the current I'm drawing in amps, as well as the stability of the power in volts. It's a heavy unit with ample plugs for everything in my system. The only beef I have with it is that my youngest child has occasionally turned everything off with the power button in front. However, the power button on the front could be as much a convenience for some as it has been an occassional bother for me. I liked it so much I just recently purchased a second one for the home theater I'm putting in the basement. I like the fact it comes with rack ears so I can mount it in the Sanus rack I also recently ordered from B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for the Buck in Clean Power! I was using a Furman M-8 on my hi-fi system and wanted something more substantial. I was looking at several brands online and almost purchased a Panamax until I read several reviews saying the voltage regulation was noisy. I then stumbled across a website that showed internal pictures of several manufacturers and was blown away by the APC! It was the only one with an isolation transformer and was the cheapest conditioner of them all. I ordered this unit and I have been more than pleased with it. It is very well built, fit and finish is akin to that of several thousand dollar stereo equipment, the power cord is as big around as my index finger. The unit works great and has definitely improved the noise floor in my audiophile system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from H-15 works as advertised and then some I bought a new H-15 Power Conditioner a few weeks ago, and I just love it. Mine is the silver model and it looks great in my audio rack. It works just as advertised, and it gives me peace in knowing that I do not have to worry about unruly power destroying my expensive Home Theater Equipment. I will probably buy another one, as my gear is expanding and I do not want to over do the one that I have. It is extremely well made and pretty heavy for it's size. It sits there on my rack and doesn't make a sound while doing it's job. I love it! Everybody with a home Theater should own one or more of these awesome products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised I of course use this for home theatre and it's the second one I've bought (for my basement setup). Suffice it to say this product works as advertised... nice clean power to your home theatre, no fuzz if someone turns on a blender and I've seen it do its thing with the voltage regualtion (a light comes on with some quiet clicking noises). Lights can be a bit bright in a dark room though. Otherwise, this is by far the most cost effective power conditioner (with voltage regulation) currently available. PS, excellent shipping by B&H, thanks!
