    Can anyone recommend a 6 way plug extension block.
    I only have a double socket on the wall, and need power for several pieces of equipment.

    Would I be better running 2 four way extensions one from each socket, or is this a little extreme?

    I have the following kit to plug in and would ideally like to protect against any possible power surges. (not that I have ever suffered from this before, but want to ensure all my new shiny kit is protected as best as possible).

    Denon AVR 4306 AV receiver
    Denon 1920 DVD player
    Sky + (hd at sometime in the future)
    Sony RDR HX900 DVD/HD recorder
    X-Box 360

    Netgear DG834GT ADLS modem Router

    I currently use Belkin surgemaster 4 Way blocks - £6.75 each from Amazon for my hifi setups (2 off) & my PC + Hifi setup (1 off) very nice and practical design, cheap and they do the job as specified.

    I have just ordered one of these 8 way blocks from their PureAV range which comes in at £18.

    I bought it mainly as I know the £7 Belkin blocks are excellent - and this one looks a little more "stealth" wise to match my black fasciad hifi kit.

    I have one of those although it does not say Pure AV on the casing and is in silver instead, cost very similiar.FYI the sockets seem to have very bad and loose contacts. Mine is connected to the TV and it's ancillarys and I find everytime it gets knocked (often fiddling around the back) the TV switches off :eek: :( I expected it to be much better than this & as such I'm seriously thinking of getting rid of it for some "Hi-Fi" distribution block.

    Well let's wait and see. If it's not up to scratch it'll go straight back.

    That has come down in price by the looks as it used to be around £60 which really put me off.

    I don't think I could bring myself to pay £50+ for a distribution block however fancy.

    I don't have any particular problems with spikes etc. but the layout of the 8w Belkin I have ordered simply suits my needs.
