Product Review - Furman IT-Reference 20i Power Conditioner
" I think the main thing I should point out is that with the Furman Reference IT-Reference 20i in my stereo system, I wanted to listen to more music. Both CD’s and vinyl. With Vinyl, I couldn’t get enough. When the Furman was in my home theater system, I wanted to watch more TV, more movies and more music DVD’s. ‘More TV’ has an evil ring to it I know so I leave it to you whether enhancing your home theater system is something you want to do but if you do, the IT-Reference 20i is a great way to do it. "

" I know of no other professional level, rack-mounted power conditioner that comes even close to the features and depth of protection of the new Furman PL-PRO DMC "
Power Management for the Corporate AV Environment
" It is easy to take electricity for granted. It is assumed that when you plug in an AV device, it will have power. But aging infrastructure can cause unseen problems and reduced performance without the proper protection. Whether an AV install is small or large, consultants and integrators are paying more attention to power-management systems included in the system design. Factors such as convenience, asset protection, and green initiatives mean that power-management products are no longer considered an accessory and now occupy their own product category. "
Furman Sound Launches European Distribution Centre
" The power management company wants to enhance its support for European customers, writes David Davies. The new distribution centre is situated in Moerdijk, approximately 60km south-west of Amsterdam - which, appropriately enough, is where the company showcased its latest pro-AV voltage regulators during ISE last week. "

The F1000-UPS is ideal for installed sound systems, DAW workstations, and any electronics that risk data corruption or equipment damage in the event of power loss. "
Power Management For Arenas & Stadiums
" You're assembling the AC infrastructure for either a new or rejuvenated arena or large concert venue. Of course, you’ll stage massive high-voltage supplies from your utility, possibly back-up generators for critical loads, and break these multi-phase services out via distribution: breaker panels, ideally with surge suppression, earth grounding, lightning arresting, and possibly even some basic voltage regulation and filtering. "

" Furman announces its new Classic Series of rugged single-rack-space power management/light modules. With modules offered in 15A and 20A versions, the Classic Series offers a new industrial design and full feature set engineered specifically for the A/V professional, the company says. "
" Milwaukee-based Ultra Fidelis has been providing state-of-the-art A/V products and custom installations since its inception in 1997. If you had to use one word to sum up the company's approach to audio and video, it would be "selective." This includes the product lines they sell and the showroom where they demonstrate them. So when the company needed to move to a new location, the objective was to find a standalone building where they could recreate the compelling music and movie experiences most of us enjoy frequently at home, but rarely, if ever, in a commercial establishment. And when it came to power management for the new showroom, only solutions that truly enhanced sound quality needed to apply. "

When Good Projectors Go Bad
" In addition to live music and dancing, sporting events are a big part of the scene at the New Copper Penny in Portland, Oregon. For off-track betting and televised sports such as basketball, football, and boxing, the club utilizes eight digital projectors. The units are an integral part of the club’s atmosphere, and it is important to keep them up and running at any cost. Those costs, however, were getting very high when the club began to experience bulb-life issues. (In addition to routine service calls, projector bulbs are very expensive.) The club needed a solution that would eliminate downtime, reduce service calls, and provide cost savings. "

Valley Baptist Church's Journey to Turn AC Noise Into a Clear Message
" While several changes were made to improve the sound at Valley Baptist, the majority of the problems had come as a result of unclean power. Of the many solutions to remedying noisy AC, power conditioning is one of the most effective and important. With our aging power grid providing dirtier and dirtier power with each passing year, and the ever-growing use of electronic devices with noise-generating power supplies, AC noise can couple into audio circuits and become audible or at least decrease efficiency and performance of the equipment by raising the noise floor. "

Review: Furman SPB-8C
" After completing the pedalboard, I must say I'm pretty happy with the results, even though I took this particular product out of its intended "comfort zone." Using this with standard pedals is a slam dunk, so I was pleasantly surprised that it also worked well as a "guitar rack in a laptop" box. But hey, the SPB-8C does the job for me. It's a fine pedalboard, and I feel a lot more confident about taking my gear to gigs now. "
Furman~Panamax Provides Power Management Technology for Verizon's "My Home 2.0"

All I Wanted Was HDTV... So why are you trying to sell me power management?
" Probably the least understood home theater component is power management. Most people think that means protection in case of a catastrophic surge, the kind caused by lightning, but it means a lot more. Power management is absolutely critical to the performance, longevity, and reliability of your home theater system. "
The Fifth Element
" The IT-Reference 20i is built like a tank, and worked flawlessly. It brought a slight lowering of the noise floor without any reduction in dynamics. To my annoyance, the Filarmonia kept on hummin', though that problem eventually solved itself over time, and it was hardly the Furman's fault. "

Filter with Furman's Power Factor
" We filter our water - and make sure everything else in our lives is clean - right? Then why not filter the electricity we use everyday? If you have high-end electronics in your home or business you already know what I'm talking about, because you most likely have all of your entertainment system plugged into a Furman.It was just about a year ago that Nortek purchased Panamax and then Furman Sound, bringing these two prominent players in the power conditioning/management space together. Coincidentally, both companies were already located in the same business park in Petaluma, Calif., so the physical move was not that traumatic. But often the most difficult part of merging is combining company cultures. "

Home Theater Magazine - IT-Ref 20i Review 94/100 [PDF 800k]
" Did I say "audible difference"? Try audible and visceral. Hooked up directly to the AC from the wall, the Mythos STs were already an excellent set of speaker. But, hooked up to one of the discrete AC outlet banks on the back of the IT-Reference 20i, the Def Techs seemed to grow in stature with bass that not only increased in heft and depth but also tightened and became more dynamic than before. I was in no way prepare for the difference the Furman made and had to hook and re-hook the power cords many times before I believe what I was hearing was real. "

Review: Furman SPB-8C
" Toting a pedalboard is much easier than throwing pedals into a gig bag's cramped confines, where each time a bright new one rubs against another in that dark abyss, it's worse for wear. Pedalboards come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from a DIY sheet of warped plywood to a flight-ready uber-board with custom pedal cozies and buffered effect loops. The Furman SPB-8C is neither spartan nor over-the-top; instead, it's a sensible realization of all that's desirable in pedalboards. For most of us, it's all we'll ever need. "
