I need the opinions from all of you electrical engineer friends. Here is my scenario and I need some specific recommendations.
I am moving from US in next few months. I have an apartment in Pakistan where I intend to install a Kohler generator. I like movies so I have some high Audio video equipment like an A/V Receiver, Blu Ray Player and a HD Projector. Except for the projector, everything else is 110v. One of my laptops is also connected to my receiver to watch content from the web like youtube. Other accessories like printer, DSL router and scanner are connected in the same general area. Currently in the US I have all this connected via one simple power surge protector. Obviously, in Pakistan I need a step down to 110v and make sure I protect these machines from power surges common in Pakistan. Here are my questions.
1. Do you guys know of any surge protector that gets installed at the very electrical control box so voltage gets stabilized before it reaches to any equipment in the house? This way I don't have 5 different stabilizers all around the house for different appliances. Is this a good idea? What is the cost of such system?
2. How do I configure my systems so I can use only one 220v to 110v converter for BluRay and the receiver? Should I buy one from here or in Pakistan?
I really can't sell me 110v stuff without incurring heavy loss. How would you guys set this system up?
Thanks so much in advance.
