Tributaries Adds Innovative Power Aids

Single- and eight-outlet models complete line of swiveling, surge-protected power strips

Orlando, FL -October 2008 -Tributaries® Cable, the Florida company that sets the standard for high -performance, high -value accessories and cables for custom home audio and home -theater installations, is pleased to announce a pair of new AC power products that offer unique flexibility and round out the Tributaries line of innovative power strips. The new T1 single -outlet and T8 eight -outlet designs both incorporate high -current surge protection, to which the T8 adds RFI AC line filtering.


Offering a convenient, simple solution for consumers and installers alike, Tributaries' clever swiveling plugs allow easy connection of "wall -wart" power supplies or other bulky items without the user having to wrestle with awkward positions and angles or obscure adjacent outlets. The Tributaries T1 swivels a full 360 degrees, making a conventional household dual or quad wall receptacle, or fixed -outlet power strip, far more flexible, even with bulky plugs or power supplies that otherwise would hog two or even three outlets -all while adding valuable surge protection at a very affordable price. Tributaries' T8 power strip incorporates six 180 -degree swiveling outlets with two fixed jacks, permitting almost any combination of plugs and power supplies to fully use every one of its eight positions. Its highly effective surge suppression extends to twin F -connector jacks, permitting pass -through protection for an antenna or cable RF line.

Both new Tributaries accessories include substantial surge protection: 2160 joules (total) for the 1875W T8, and 202 joules for the 1500W T1. The T8 adds AC line filtering, substantially reducing the possibility that radio -frequency noise will be induced via the AC supplies of connected audio or audio -video components, as well as Ground and Protected LEDs that confirm the ground configuration of the household wiring and the intact readiness of its anti -surge circuitry. Both the Tributaries T1 and T8 exceed current safety standards and carry multiple UL® listings in their relevant categories.

The Tributaries T1 and T8 power accessories are available immediately at manufacturer's suggested prices of $20 and $50, respectively.
