High quality power boards are important for a complex home electronic system that relies on few outlets to power multiple high energy devices. A home theatre needs a sufficient power supply for a media player, display or projector, a receiver or amplifier, and multiple speakers. A power board is necessary to provide able space to power the entire system. Surge protected power boards ensure power security of all your electronics, and are available with or without extension cords. Outlet supply ranges from 4 to 8 outlets, and some boards are available in 4 or 8 packs. Consider the size of your device power plugs, to ensure that all plugs will fit properly. Short space-saving extension leads are also available to avoid large plugs taking up too much space. Alternative power options include remote control power points, which can be installed around your home for optimal power control.
