IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Please read and observe the following safety points at all times.
WARNING – Power Sources
Do not plug your Monster PowerCenter into a power outlet that differs from the source indicated
for safe use on the Monster PowerCenter. If you don’t know the type of electrical power that is supplied
to your home, please consult your local power company.
WARNING – Grounding and Polarization
A. Your Monster PowerCenter has a three-wire grounding-type AC plug (a three-prong plug).
This plug is designed to be inserted into a grounding-type outlet only. If this plug doesn’t fit directly inside
your outlet, do not attempt to force it into the outlet. [Never attempt to dismantle the plug in any way
(or to alter an extension cord) to make it fit into a two-prong outlet. Do not attempt to defeat the grounding feature
by using a 3-to-2 prong adapter. Instead, call a local electrician to install a properly grounded outlet.]
B. If you use rooftop devices such as satellite dishes, antennas, or any other component with wire
that connects to your PowerCenter, be sure the wire(s) is properly grounded. Use grounding techniques
specified in Section 810 of the National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70 (in Canada, Part 1 of the Canadian
Electrical Code). This protects against harmful voltage surges and static discharges. Do not place any part
of an antenna near overhead power lines, or any other power circuit. Do not touch any power line or power circuit.
Doing so may cause you severe physical injury and possibly result in death.
ii
WARNING – Liquid: To Avoid Electrical Shocks
Do not operate your Monster PowerCenter if liquid of any kind is spilled onto or inside the unit.
Do not operate your Monster PowerCenter near rain or water that’s spilled or openly exposed (e.g., bathtub, kitchen
or bathroom sink).
WARNING – Power Cord Safety
A. When routing your Monster PowerCenter AC power cord, do not place it near heat sources
or heavy foot traffic areas (e.g., hallways, doorways, and kitchen floors). Do not create a trip hazard
with the power cord.
B. If your power cord’s protective jacket begins to rip or fray, exposing the internal wiring, shielding,
etc., disconnect it from the power source and discontinue use of the Monster PowerCenter
immediately. See the warranty section of this owner’s manual (page 35).
WARNING – Proper Cleaning
In general, the only cleaning necessary for your Monster PowerCenter is a light dusting.
Unplug your component from the wall outlet before cleaning it. Do not use any type of liquid or aerosol cleaners.
iii
WARNING – Storm Precautions
In the event of a lightning storm, immediately disconnect your Monster PowerCenter
from its power source. After you’ve done this, it’s not necessary to disconnect any components
that are connected to your Monster PowerCenter.
WARNING – No User Serviceable Parts Inside
If, for any reason, your Monster PowerCenter is not operating properly, do not remove any part
of the unit (cover, etc.,) for repair. Unplug the unit and consult this owner’s manual for warranty and service
information.
CAUTION – Exposure To Heat
Do not expose your Monster PowerCenter to direct sunlight or place it near wall heaters, space heaters,
or any enclosed space prone to temperature increase (e.g., car trunk).
iv
PROPER GROUNDING AND INSTALLATION TIPS
CAUTION – Proper Grounding
Monster PowerCenters require a properly grounded 3-wire outlet for safety and to protect connected equipment.
If your AC outlet is improperly wired (no ground or reverse polarity), the green ”SYSTEM GROUNDED” LED light on
the front panel of the Home Theatre Reference PowerCenter™ HTS 5000 will not light up. In this event, call a qualified
electrician to fix the problem in your home’s wiring.
Many older buildings are inadequately wired. It’s very common for a building to be improperly grounded. Building
wiring and grounding must conform to applicable NEC (USA) or CEC (Canada) codes for the $100,000 Limited
Connected Equipment Warranty to be valid. If you’re not sure about your home’s wiring, have it checked by
a qualified electrician.
Note to CATV Installer
This reminder is provided to call the CATV System Installer’s attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides
specific guidelines for proper grounding and in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the
point of cable entry as practical.
IMPORTANT NOTE – Proper Power and Protection
To completely deliver clean power and protect your equipment against electrical surges, every phone, coaxial cable,
or AC power cable in your system must be connected to an appropriate Monster PowerCenter.
IMPORTANT NOTE – Proper Protection and the Limited Connected Equipment Warranty
The $100,000 Limited Connected Equipment Warranty becomes invalid if any wire (phone, coax, or AC), or audio
or video interconnect leading into the equipment comes from a component that is not properly protected by
the Monster PowerCenter.

INTRODUCTION
Thank You
Thank you for purchasing Monster Power’s Home Theatre Reference PowerCenter™ HTS 5000. The PowerCenter
reflects Monster’s commitment to creating performance-enhancing solutions for home theater systems, so you
will enjoy superior picture and sound quality.
Ordinary AC power accessories compromise the quality of the components they power. The PowerCenter’s advanced
technologies and innovative design solve this problem and offer several unique convenience and performance features.
While your PowerCenter does an excellent job of protecting your components from harmful power surges, its main benefit
is much more than just surge protection. Exclusive Clean Power filter circuitry virtually stops the noise that goes right
through typical surge protectors. It isn’t enough to only have filtering from a noisy incoming power line. That’s why your
PowerCenter also features revolutionary separate noise isolation between filtered digital, audio, and video outlets.
If any noise from an electronic product plugged into an outlet gets through our Clean Power noise filters and to the power
line, it will have to go through another filter to get to an adjacent set of outlets. The result is high quality picture and sound
that’s free from performance-damaging interference.
™
Another Monster Power breakthrough is the PowerCenter’s ultra-low loss RF circuitry. While other “line conditioners”
feature coaxial outlets for convenience, their insertion loss can be up to 30dB. The PowerCenter’s incredibly small insertion
loss makes it ideal for all digital coaxial connections such as DBS. Your PowerCenter also features an exclusive color-coding
system which identifies which component should be plugged in where and outlet filter type (digital, high current audio,
analog audio, and video). This way, you won’t jeopardize performance by plugging a high current audio component into
an analog audio outlet.
®
As fellow audiophiles and videophiles, we designed your PowerCenter for the best possible sound and picture. Enjoy!
1
MONSTER’S PATENTED CLEAN POWER STAGES
Each PowerCenter has its own Clean Power stage. Clean Power performs two tasks vital to high performance
audio, video and digital reproduction: filtration and isolation. The higher the Clean Power stage, the more
sophisticated and advanced the filters are, to reject noise generated on the AC powerline. Also, the higher
the Clean Power stage, the more isolation between connected equipment for maximum component-generated
noise rejection. HTS 5000 features Clean Power Stage 4 for the best possible possible performance.
Clean Power Stage 4: Five ultra-advanced isolated filters including two separate digital filters for separate
digital sources, analog audio, video, and ultra-high current audio filters provide the best possible AC powerline
noise rejection and isolation of audio equipment from video equipment for improved component-generated
noise rejection. Ideal for audiophile and videophile a/v systems and reference home theatres.

the outlet pair will be turned off immediately once the PowerCenter is switched off by pressing the front
panel OFF button or by external signal.
D) Delay Time Switch: Set to the SHORT position, outlets will receive power after an approximate six second
delay, once the PowerCenter is switched on (fig. 2d). Set to the LONG position, outlets will receive power
after an approximate twenty second delay, once the PowerCenter is switched on. This is the recommended
delay setting for tube-based products.
NOTE: This switch affects all outlet pairs located on the back panel, if the outlet pair switched on
after delay is selected.
E) Trigger Out Programming Switch: Set to the DELAY position, the 12 volt remote trigger will power
an external device after a delay set by the DELAY TIME slide switch once the PowerCenter is switched on
(fig. 2e). Set to the NO DELAY position, the 12 volt trigger powers an external device as soon as the
PowerCenter is switched on.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. What is the importance of component-to-component filtering?
A. With the Monster PowerCenter, AC power must first go through a segment of noise filters, which isolates your
equipment from noise on the AC power line. Most manufacturers’ battle against line noise stops there. The next
crucial step of noise filtering must occur between components. Our patent-pending component-to-component noise
filtering is one of the PowerCenter’s incredibly innovative features because it protects components from degrading
each other’s performance via their own special brand of interference. The PowerCenter outlets are all directly
connected, so the noise that’s generated by a particularly noisy component (digital components like CD players are
infamous for this) will attempt to get onto other components. It will not, however, because it must to go through
a specialized filter to get to an adjacent outlet, and noise is eliminated for the best possible sound and picture.
Q. Does it matter which outlets I plug my components into?
A. Yes. Each group of outlets is specifically designed to protect and maximize performance of ONLY the components
they are intended to power. For example, a power amplifier is high current device and has a special high current
audio filter that allows for the greater power requirement and still reduces noise from the AC power line. A VCR
is not a high current device, like an amplifier, and the filter used with video products like this one reduces a wider
band of noise that is specific to video products. In summary, each type of component receives separate noise filtering
to accommodate the inherent needs and differences.
30
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Will it harm a component to plug it into an outlet that it’s not designated to power,
like a high power amplifier into an outlet marked for TV?
A. No. However, you may not realize the full performance potential of the component.
Q. If my PowerCenter stops operating, what do I do?
A. First you need to check the reset button (labeled as BREAKER 15A on the PowerCenter’s rear panel). It is possible
the overload came from your high-powered audio equipment. If your system were to draw too much power, a special
circuit breaker may kick in. To restore the operation of your PowerCenter, wait for 10 minutes and press the reset
button. If power is still not restored to your PowerCenter, please refer to page 24 and read through the related
troubleshooting questions.
