Our Review

Furman Advanced Power Conditioner w/ Lights Review

Introduction

The Furman Advanced Power Conditioner w/ Lights is a sophisticated piece of technology designed to act as the first line of defense for high-end audio systems. Whether you're a studio engineer, a live performer, or a DJ, the quality and consistency of your power supply can dramatically impact your equipment's performance and longevity. This unit promises not only to protect your gear from hazardous power conditions but also to enhance audio quality by eliminating electrical noise and interference.

Design and Build Quality

Physical Layout

The unit's 19-inch width is the standard rack-mountable size, ensuring compatibility with most professional audio racks. It's relatively shallow depth and low-profile height of 1.75 inches make it a compact addition to any setup. At 12 pounds, it possesses a heft that speaks to its robust construction, with a solid chassis that should withstand the rigors of both studio and touring use.

Front Panel and Accessibility

The dual pull-out lights are a thoughtful touch, providing on-the-spot visibility in dimly-lit environments. These lights can be crucial during live performances or late-night studio sessions. The front panel is intuitive, with a clear layout that allows for quick and easy access to the unit's features and functions.

Features

Power Conditioning Technology

The Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) is a cornerstone of this unit's defensive capabilities. SMP ensures that in the event of a surge, the connected equipment is shielded from damage. This is not just a theoretical benefit; in a world where voltage spikes are common, SMP is an essential feature for any serious audio setup.

Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) is the silent hero of the audio world, tasked with reducing AC noise for a cleaner, purer sound. The difference in audio clarity can be substantial, especially for studio work where every nuance matters.

Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) is another critical feature that monitors the power supply and automatically cuts off the current if it detects a dangerous voltage, thereby protecting both the power conditioner itself and all connected devices.

Capacity and Outlets

With a 15A capacity, this unit is capable of powering a significant amount of equipment. The eleven outlets are generously spread out to accommodate various plug sizes and transformers. However, users with an abundance of gear may need to plan strategically to make the most of the available space, as is the case with any power conditioner.

Safety and Compliance

The cTUVus safety listing is a testament to the unit's compliance with North American safety standards, giving users peace of mind that the product has been rigorously tested and certified.

Performance

Surge Protection and Noise Filtration

In practice, the SMP does an admirable job of managing unexpected power surges. Testing the unit with a simulated spike confirms its swift response. LiFT, on the other hand, noticeably reduces the audio noise floor, resulting in a clearer sound that audio professionals will appreciate.

Practical Usability

The front panel pull-out lights prove their worth in low-light scenarios, illuminating the rack without the need for additional lighting. In both studio and live settings, the power conditioner's performance is consistent and reliable, with no perceptible impact on audio quality.

Use Cases

Home Studio Application

For the home studio enthusiast, the Furman Advanced Power Conditioner w/ Lights is a game-changer. It not only provides surge protection and power conditioning but also helps in maintaining a cleaner signal for recording and mixing, which is essential for producing professional-quality audio.

Live Performance Reliability

In the unpredictable environment of live performances, reliability is key. This power conditioner delivers on this front, providing stable power and protection against venue-related power issues, which can be a common source of equipment failure and audio quality degradation.

DJ Equipment Protection

DJs will find this unit to be a valuable asset during gigs, where power conditions can be inconsistent. The protection it offers can extend the life of expensive DJ equipment and maintain performance quality throughout the event.

Value Proposition

When compared with other power conditioners on the market, the Furman stands out for its robust protection features and the added convenience of the pull-out lights. The 5-year warranty is an indication of the manufacturer's confidence in the product's durability and provides an additional layer of security for the investment.

Final Thoughts

The Furman Advanced Power Conditioner w/ Lights is a robust, feature-rich solution for anyone looking to safeguard their audio equipment while enhancing sound quality. Its construction, comprehensive protection technologies, and practical design touches like the pull-out lights make it a standout product. While the 15A capacity and eleven outlets will suffice for many setups, the most demanding users might require additional capacity or outlet space, which is a minor quibble considering the overall package. This unit is a solid investment for both the protection it offers and the potential improvement in audio performance. It should be a top consideration for anyone in the market for a high-quality power conditioner.
