I didn't notice the electrical outlets before, that's really cool. It would come in very handy with blenders, etc. Did you add a separate breaker for the bar, or is it on the same one as the room? Also, I hope your friends appreciate what you're doing for them. I dig the wine fridge. It would be awesome to put a few wine bottles in there if you brew on that side of the hobby as well.

I don't know if you're into antiques or anything, but if you could get one of those old National cash registers that would look awesome.

That is so funny. I've been looking for a cash register. They are expensive!

I ran seven separate circuits to the bar. One for the outlets, one for the ejector and condensate pumps, and each appliance is on a separate circuit.

I have great friends. They do appreciate it. Sometimes there wives don't though! There are stories....

Time to invest in a Monster power center. Guaranteed to protect anything plugged into it (cable, cat6, power, etc.) up to $100,000. For a $200 investment it's worth the piece of mind or in your case save your electronics from blowing up.

A complete waste of money IMHO. Read the insurance clauses in any of these pieces of equipment. They (usually) state that the replacement guarantee is only valid if there is proof of damage to the surge surpressor which basically never ever happens because of the technologies they employ.

The other issue is that all of these cheap suppressors use MOVs (metal oxide varistors) to block surges. They are sacrificial and eventually (fairly quickly) wear out completely open and no longer do anything. Useless.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varistor

Want a good surge protector? Look at ones that do not use sacrificial components like this: http://www.brickwall.com/. Or better yet, a whole house surge unit that uses similar technology.

Personally, I wouldn't bother. But that's just me.

Monster is a company I generally do not respect as they rely on scare tactics and non-factual information to market their products. The markups are absolutely insane. I sell home theater stuff and would love those markups but cannot in good conscience sell their stuff. Most of their money is made off of people after they decide to spend $2000 on a TV and are told that it doesn't come with a cable... what's an extra $100-200 when you've already spent $2000 right? (It's about $180-$190 too much, that's what it is!).

There are no 'facts' or numbers on Monster products that can be used to compare against their competitors. Their cables are the worst: Want a frequency sweep of their cables? Nope, not going to get it. Want resistance/capitance/inductance/attenuation values? Nope, not going to get it.

For example, look at their highest end cable "features" here: http://www.monstercable.com/productdisplay.asp?pin=4314

There's absolutely nothing provided that allows you to compare their $200+ product to a $10 cable. Why? Because there's no difference.

Now look at this cable: http://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/...hdmi-cable.htm

They provide you with complete details and specs of the Belden wiring used.

I have no affiliation with any of these companies. I'm just an EE and home theater buff who likes facts over fluff.

Save your money, do your homework. Don't buy Monster, don't buy Bose, unless you're ok that 95% of what you spent has gone to fuel their misleading marketing campaigns.

/rant!
