    I have three layers of protection:

    1). Power strips for all machines for when I am playing
    2). All outlets (thus power strips) on their own circuit breaker, thus when I am finished playing I just turn off the outlets at the circuit breaker box
    3). The home I live in is, in itself, surge protected

    Since I live in Florida, and we do indeed get some impressive lightning, I do not want to risk anything.

    Quoted from exflexer:

    I have had electronic still fry with surge protectors. Cheap surge protectors have a lower Joules rating and therefore cant take a big hit. The best line of defense is to get a surge protector installed on your electrical panel.

    Yep! This is what I did when I had my home re-wired (surge protect the entire house).
