For over 33 years, Furman has pioneered the development of AC
power products for the most demanding audio, video, and broadcast
professionals. Though the need for pristine AC power is nothing new,
the IT-REFERENCE 15i's technology and its unique implementation
are revolutionary and without peer.
The extreme AC demands encountered in the professional audio/
video arena have required technological developments far in excess
of typical home theater/audiophile power products. In studios,
live sound, and broadcast facilities, breakdown is unacceptable.
Equipment failure or poor performance is costly. The same is true
of today's home theater. Our solution-based technology, extensive
engineering expertise, and robust build quality have answered the
challenge of today's corrupted power lines, and led to the creation
of the IT-REFERENCE 15i.
Today's AC lines are plagued with ever increasing noise. When AC
noise couples into your system's critical components, it masks low
level signals and cripples performance. This low level content is critical
because it relays the crucial harmonics and ambience in audio, and the
depth and clarity in video. With Furman's exclusive Linear Filtering
Technology, CD players, pre-amplifiers, satellite receivers, and scalers
are fed linearly-filtered AC power. This dramatically reduces noise,
ensuring consistent peak operation regardless of load conditions or
the time of the day. For the first time, you will see and hear your
theater or audio system as it should be — uncompromised.
Further, our Discrete Symmetrical Power features total isolation
between the filtered-high current outlets, and the isolated symmetrical
power AC outlet banks. This positively breaks noise-inducing ground
loops, hum bars, and power supply backwash between critical
interconnected equipment, all without compromising electrical
safety. Furman's newly refined Dual-Screen Transformers yield the
widest bandwidth of noise-reduction possible. This enables the
IT-Reference 15i to uncover unprecedented levels of video and audio
detail, while insuring that plasmas, LCD screens, or video projectors
are free of AC ground contamination from an audio processor or
The IT-REFERENCE 15i also features comprehensive, virtually
maintenance-free protection from voltage spikes and surges. This
assures the highest level of AC protection possible, without sacrificing
itself when the offending surge is severe — no damaged equipment, no
service calls, no down time.
Additionally, the IT-REFERENCE 15i employs our unique Power
Factor Technology circuit. With this technology, low-level analog,
digital, and video components are not modulated or distorted via
the power amplifier's extreme AC current demands. Instead, the
power amplifier sees a highly filtered, extremely low-impedance supply
of AC power.
In fact, the IT-REFERENCE 15i has in excess of 4 Amps of continuous
current reserve (over 55 amps peak charge) for the most extreme
peak power demands. This technology enables power amplifiers and
powered subwoofers to operate at peak efficiency and reach levels
of performance previously unattainable.
>No longer will your amplifier's performance be at the mercy of
your home's incoming AC power or inferior AC protection/filtering
devices. The net effect is as if your power amplifier virtually doubled
in power and improved immeasurably in quality.
When employing the IT-REFERENCE 15i you will immediately
notice far clearer, stunningly focused sound and visual images from
your system. Video presentation will be crisp and colors true with
greater gray and black scale definition, as well as noticeably improved
depth and clarity. Sonic transients will be startlingly fast with bass
fundamentals that shake foundations with their weight and visceral
impact. Mid and high frequencies will bloom with sweet, non-glaring
ease while imaging improves dramatically, all the while remaining true
to your system's inherent virtues.
