Great Product! I like that this item is specifically designed for Audio Video systems. The only improvement would be to add protection for network cable. January 29, 2015
I just don't know Thing is built great, looks solid, all metal, nice lighted switch, however. A few weeks after buying lightning hit my house and blew out my 20 day old 60 in plasma TV and receiver and Apple TV. Sent AVBAR6 into Tripp-Lite and was told it was not there fault. They were very friendly and sent me a one but what happened? The lucky part is that all the thing were brand new and repaired under warranty. Went 22 years without a TV bought a monster system and 3 weeks later all blew up. I just don't know. November 21, 2014
