*** ZERO Return Loss Amplifier  ***
Latest Model Available - Replaces the EDA-FT08100
8-Port 1 GHz Bi-Directional Cable TV Amplifier
DOCSIS 2.0/3.0 Compliant - 5 Year Factory Warranty
- a SUPERB product to help your TV/Cable Reception -
DOUBLES your cable signal strength (+3dB) with NO RETURN PATH SIGNAL LOSS!

Attention Potential Customers:  Cabletvamps is an Authorized Electroline Retailer. Take your chances buying Electroline products elsewhere. We provide full sales, tech support, and warranty services. We have been selling and supporting Electroline cable TV amplifiers longer than ANY OTHER commercial seller. Electroline WILL NOT provide end-user support or warranty replacement, so if you buy from someone else - you buy at your own risk.

This is the LATEST MODEL AVAILABLE - the EDA-FT08300. It replaces the
EDA-FT08100 model, which was discontinued by Electroline in March 2009.
On January 1, 2010 Electroline changed the FT08300 warranty to FIVE years.

How do you know if an active return amplifier will help your cable modem? Maybe you should find out from your cable modem!  Look HERE to find directions.

If you have multiple TVs in your home you may need an Electroline Amplifier. How do you know? Here are some indications that you may need an amplifier:

- Check out our OUTSTANDING eBay feedback -

As a reseller and installer of Electroline equipment, cableTVamps.com has been selling cable TV amplifiers on eBay since 2001 - longer than any other seller. We carry the full product line AND all of the best new products. We have been educating our customers and providing top notch GUARANTEED products for many years. Our products are always NEW, always straight from Electroline.


This is the ultimate Electroline design - guaranteed to work with your cable modem. This product uses an exclusive 2-chip amplifier design to guarantee compatibility with high power levels created by cable modems. Other "less expensive" (PDI, PCT ACI, Antronix, Pico-Macom) Active Return amplifiers are NOT compliant with cable modem power specifications, and cannot handle the high power output required for cable modems (60dBmV) without failing or creating problems. Ask the other guys what their maximum input and output power levels are! They won't tell you.

Yes, This amplifier is much more expensive than other brands. However our experience has shown that people who buy the cheaper brands end up coming to us after repeated failures and frustration.  We guarantee you will NOT have these same problems with your cable modem or other services when you purchase the Electroline brand. The EDA-FT08300 amplifies the cable signal and provides ZERO return signal loss**, even with cable modem power levels as high as 60dBmV! This means it is absolutely superior to any of the competition. Fully compatible with ANY TV or cable device in your home for years to come! Works with TVs, Digital Boxes, Cable Modems (DOCSIS 1.0, 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0), On-Demand, TIVO,  HDTV and more!
**The return signal is amplified, but it is not boosted above the original signal provided by your Cable Modem or Digital Cable box. This is very important, because it means you never have to worry about compatibility or "overdriving" the return signal. Electroline amplifiers support the full power range of modern cable modems without return path distortion or failure. 

A DOCSIS 2.0/3.0 compliant Cable TV amplifier with ZERO Return Path Loss provides the ULTIMATE in capabilities to support your Broadband, Digital, and On-Demand services with virtually no technical knowledge - for years to come. The FT08300 takes the guesswork out of distributing your home cable signal. Return Path Insertion Loss is a loss of signal in the Return Path (5-42MHz), which is a special signal range used to send signals BACK to the cable company. If you have too much Return Path Insertion Loss, your Cable Modem, Interactive Services, and On-Demand features may not work as well as they should.

The Electroline EDA-FT08300 ELIMINATES all Return Path Loss through its industry leading design. Many customers have reported Cable Modem speed boosts as well!

With connections on the SIDE of the amplifier rather than the top, this model is also easier to manage, especially in restricted spaces! Easy to use, easy to install - Guaranteed Compatibility!

Do these things really work?
YES - Absolutely! Just take a look at our feedback - Thousands of satisfied customers have purchased Electroline products from us. Electroline has set the standard for quality and reliability in the Cable TV Amplifier (drop amp) business for over 10 years. They were the first company to develop the basic amplifier design that is now used by ALL drop amp manufacturers!

Electroline Cable TV Amplifiers are fully compatible with all Cable TV standards including HDTV, Digital Cable, Pay-per-View, On-Demand Programming, and Cable Modems.

What else do you need to successfully install your new amplifier?


Terminators are required to be installed on unused amplifier ports or unused cable outlets in your home. They prevent signal reflections (ghosting), and keep the Cable TV signal from leaking out into the open air. Cable companies are required by law to check for signal leakage, and a non-terminated connection can cause a call from the cable company! CLICK HERE - BUY THEM NOW IN OUR EBAY STORE

Power Cable

The amplifier requires cable to connect it to the 15V power supply. This cable is not included with your purchase. If you do not have an extra cable lying around the house, then you should get one of our 6' $1.99 cables from the eBay store. They are less expensive than cables you would normally find at the local electronics store, and you will have everything you need to install your new amp delivered to you in one package. CLICK HERE - BUY THEM NOW IN OUR EBAY STORE

TII Lightning/Surge Suppressor

Although most amplifiers provide basic surge protection, having an extra measure of insurance is a good thing, especially if you have expensive television, stereo, and computer equipment connected to your cable system. One lightning strike could knock out a lot more than your cable amplifier. The TII surge suppressor stops lightning and transient surges with ease, and it is TOTALLY transparent to your cable boxes, cable modems, and televisions. CLICK HERE - BUY THEM NOW IN OUR EBAY STORE


Coax Demarcation Enclosures provide a secure compartment for mounting amplifiers and accessories. The organized mounting arrangements not only create a standardized method for high quality drop installations, but also allow future expandability for broadband equipment.

cableTVamps.com is the original cable TV amp seller, here to stay. Other sellers love to copy our auction materials to sell their used, outdated, or stolen equipment. WHY?

The copycats consistently show one thing - We have good products and excellent information. It is hard work to research these products and publish web pages to provide solid, accurate information. It is very easy for others to copy them from us.
