Unparalleled Protection for Your Equipment

Imagine stepping into a studio where every note, every beat, and every sound is captured with pristine clarity. This is the dream of every musician, producer, and audio professional. The Furman P-8PRO C is designed to be the silent guardian of that dream. It's not just a power conditioner; it's a fortress for your equipment, ensuring that every performance and recording is protected from the unpredictable nature of power supply.

Why Power Conditioning Matters

Electrical power isn't always steady and clean, and sensitive audio equipment is particularly vulnerable to the whims of unstable current. The Furman P-8PRO C offers a comprehensive defense system against these power-related disturbances. With its advanced Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) and Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus (SMP+), this power conditioner delivers a quieter tone without pops, crackles, and interference, letting the true sound of your instruments shine through.

The Heart of Your Setup

  • Robust Surge Protection: With a maximum surge current capacity of 6,500 Amps and an initial clamping level of 188 VAC peak at 3,000 Amps, your gear is safeguarded against the most violent of power spikes.
  • Automatic Voltage Monitoring: The Furman P-8PRO C features both under-voltage shutoff at 90V and over-voltage shutoff at 140 VAC, ensuring your equipment operates within safe power levels.
  • Linear Filtering Technology: Experience reduced noise and interference, thanks to the LiFT, which ensures zero ground contamination and a pure sound.
  • Isolated Outlet Banks: Two isolated banks prevent noisy gear from contaminating the power for audio-sensitive equipment.
  • Convenient Connectivity: With eight rear panel outlets and one front panel outlet, plus a BNC connector for a gooseneck lamp, everything you need is within reach.

Built to Last

The Furman P-8PRO C isn't just about performance; it's also about durability. The steel chassis and rack-mountable design mean it's ready to withstand the rigors of the road and the demands of a permanent installation. It's a piece of gear that promises to be a reliable partner for years to come, backed by a three-year limited warranty for extra peace of mind.

Our Review

Furman P-8PRO C 9-Outlet 20A Advanced Power Conditioner Review

Introduction

In the world of audio and visual setups, the integrity and purity of power can often be the unsung hero behind a flawless performance or recording session. The Furman P-8PRO C enters the fray as a robust solution designed to ensure that power-related issues never detract from your equipment's performance. This review will delve into the various aspects of the P-8PRO C, a unit that promises not only to protect but also to enhance the quality of the power supplied to your most crucial gear.

Design

Upon unboxing the Furman P-8PRO C, one is immediately struck by the unit's solid construction. The steel chassis exudes durability and professionalism, which is exactly what you want in a piece of equipment that’s meant to be the first line of defense for your high-value electronics. The rack-mountable design ensures seamless integration with standard 19-inch racks, a staple in studio and live sound environments.

Weighing in at 12 pounds and with dimensions of 19" W x 10.5" D x 1.75" H, the P-8PRO C is substantial without being unwieldy. This balance is crucial for ensuring that the unit can be installed with relative ease, whether in a fixed location or a touring rack case.

Front and Rear Panel Layout

The thoughtful layout of the Furman P-8PRO C's front and rear panels is a testament to its user-centric design. The nine outlets are strategically placed to accommodate various plug sizes and shapes, with two isolated banks to minimize interference between connected devices. The front panel hosts a single outlet for convenience, allowing quick access to power for devices that may rotate in and out of your setup.

The rear panel BNC connector is a welcome detail, allowing the attachment of a standard gooseneck lamp to illuminate the rear of the rack, a feature that is incredibly useful in dimly lit performance spaces or studios.

Connectivity Options

With a total of nine outlets, the P-8PRO C caters to a substantial number of devices. The isolated outlet banks are particularly noteworthy, as they help to ensure that digital noise and interference do not cross-contaminate between components. This is especially important in audio setups where signal purity is paramount.

Features

The Furman P-8PRO C boasts a suite of features designed to enhance the quality of power delivery and provide comprehensive protection. SMP+ (Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus) with extreme voltage shutdown safeguards against spikes and surges, while the LiFT (Linear Filtering Technology) ensures that the power is clean and free of noise.

Surge Protection and Filtration

The unit's surge protection capabilities are impressive, with a maximum surge current of 6,500 Amps and an initial clamping level of 188 VAC peak at 3,000 Amps. This level of protection provides peace of mind, knowing that your equipment is shielded from the most severe of electrical transients.

LiFT is another standout feature that distinguishes the P-8PRO C from conventional power strips. By providing a linearly filtered power source, the P-8PRO C ensures that audio and visual equipment performs at its best, free from the deleterious effects of electrical noise that can manifest as hum, buzz, or interference in the signal path.

Power Management

The automatic voltage shutoff feature is a critical component of the P-8PRO C's protective measures. It is designed to disconnect power when the line voltage falls below 90V or exceeds 140V, preventing potential damage to connected equipment. The 20 Amp maximum current rating underlines the unit's capability to handle high-demand systems with ease.

Performance

In practical terms, the P-8PRO C delivers on its promise to reduce operational noise and interference. Users often report a noticeable improvement in the clarity and purity of their audio signals when using the unit, attributing this to the effective filtration system.

Power Stability and Equipment Safety

The P-8PRO C's ability to maintain stable power even in less-than-ideal electrical environments is a testament to its design and feature set. This stability is crucial for both the safety of connected equipment and the consistency of performance. By minimizing the risk of downtime or failure, the P-8PRO C not only protects your investment but also ensures that shows and sessions can go on without a hitch.

Usability and Practicality

The ease of installation and straightforward operation of the P-8PRO C makes it a user-friendly addition to any setup. The well-designed layout, with clear LED diagnostic lights, allows for easy monitoring and quick troubleshooting, if necessary. The BNC socket for a rack lamp is particularly practical, offering visibility in the rear of the rack where it is often most needed.

Comparison with Competitors

When compared to other power conditioners in the market, the Furman P-8PRO C stands out for its robust surge protection, comprehensive filtering, and the inclusion of isolated outlet banks. While some competitors may offer similar surge protection levels, the P-8PRO C's integration of these features into a well-built, rack-mountable unit provides a compelling value proposition for professionals.

User Experience and Feedback

Feedback from users consistently highlights the P-8PRO C's effectiveness in cleaning up the power supply and protecting against surges. The unit is often praised for its solid construction and the tangible benefits it brings to audio clarity and system reliability. While individual experiences may vary, the overall sentiment is that the P-8PRO C is a worthy investment for anyone serious about the quality and safety of their AV setup.

Final Thoughts

The Furman P-8PRO C 9-Outlet 20A Advanced Power Conditioner is an exemplary piece of equipment that offers more than just surge protection. Its comprehensive feature set, including SMP+ and LiFT, positions it as a vital component in any professional audio or visual setup. While the lack of included rack lights may be a minor inconvenience for some, the overall functionality and protection provided by the P-8PRO C far outweigh this omission.

For anyone from studio engineers to touring musicians, the Furman P-8PRO C is a wise choice that ensures your equipment operates at peak performance while being safeguarded from unpredictable power events. Whether you're setting up a new studio, upgrading your live rig, or simply looking to protect your investment, the P-8PRO C merits strong consideration for its exceptional protection, clean power delivery, and reliable performance.
