Surge and Conditioning

Hi all, I have a Marantz SR5011 and McIntosh MC300 as the main components in my system. I live where we have lightning throughout the summer. I am contemplating adding a surge protector and power conditioner to the system. I have an in wall 20a plug in and breaker. I don’t really want to spend $3000 for mcp500 but curious what more knowledgeable people here think about it?  Thanks in advance.


You should head on over to What’s Best Forums. A lot of manufacturers there and a totally different vibe there. 

A whole house breaker is something I highly recommend- in expensive and installed at the circuit breaker. 

@overthemoon is correct and many of the more modern (not necessarily better) homes this is standard, depending on local codes of course.
