Furman Power Station PST-8D Power Conditioner with SMP LiFT & EVS
Furman Power Station PST-8D Power Conditioner
We love these. This is where decent power conditioning for home theater starts. Yes, this is on our "budget" model list, but it's not built like an economy model. It's tough and capable. Excellent value without breaking the bank.
Furman Power Station Series Advanced Power Strips with LiFT and SMP. Made for audio / video. Much better for your sound and video than surge protectors or battery backup units made for computers.
- SMP provides the highest level of protection available
- LiFT significantly reduces AC line noise
- E.V.S protects equipment from dangerous over-voltage conditions
- Zero ground contamination circuitry assures the delivery of pure AC power thus protecting critical audio/video components
- Cable satellite and Telco connectors deliver advanced protection to connected equipment
- Isolated outlet banks keep digital and analog components from interfering with each other
- Sturdy Aluminum chassis
Furman manufactures some of the best power conditioning out there. We recommend this unit if you have moved up to "separates" in your audio or home theater system. 2 isolated banks for keeping your analog (power amps etc.) equipment from being contaminated by grunge from your digital (cd / DVD players etc.) equipment.
This unit features: LiFT Linear Filtering Technology dramatically reduces AC line noise and contamination, resulting in optimized audio / video performance.
Maintenance-Free AC Surge Suppression (SMP) and automatic Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) provide the highest level of protection available from this type of power strip.
HD-Digital TV Ready- Tivo friendly cable, satellite and telephone line protectors with Zero Ground Contamination technology assure no distortion or degraded performance.
Furman's SMP takes a new approach and does not rely on sacrificial components to protect equipment. This technology provides both Maintenance-Free Protection, as well as an Unlimited Joule Rating!
Today’s overworked, outdated power grid delivers poor quality AC power. When connecting sensitive equipment to regular power outlets, AC noise masks and distorts critical signal information which cripples performance. This is why it’s more important that ever to purify or clean the AC powering your sensitive audio/video equipment.
The PST-8 D all feature Furman’s SMP circuit which incorporates Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) and a high current TVZ-MOV to insure that any electronic device (including televisions, projectors, CD-DVD players, or computers) is fed clean, filtered AC power. This dramatically reduces noise, ensuring consistent peak performance from your equipment.
Typical AC filters feature antiquated non-linear circuits. Though these multiple stage filters or power cleaners reduce some noise, they do so unevenly. In fact, they can add noise to your power line due to their filter’s excessive resonant peaking. With Furman’s proprietary Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT), AC noise is suppressed evenly, assuring maximum performance from your system.
Additionally, today’s power grid commonly experiences numerous electrical surges and spikes on a daily basis. At best, these irregularities can degrade your equipment’s performance, and, at worst, can severely damage your entire system. Furman’s SMP circuit offers the highest degree of protection available without sacrificing itself or any of its components.
Conventional AC conditioners employing older technologies leak voltage to circuit ground which can, in fact, aid in damaging sensitive digital circuits such as computer processors. Furman’s new technology, however, never directs voltage to the circuit ground further ensuring the safety of your equipment.
Another feature that is unique to Furman’s SMP circuit is automatic extreme-voltage shutdown. Extreme voltages are statistically the most common, damaging AC event. The Extreme Voltage Shutdown circuit automatically turns off the unit when it is fed 137 volts or higher protecting itself and connected equipment from the extreme voltage. Only Furman offers this degree of protection! Add telco and cable /satellite transient voltage suppression, and you have what is, unquestionably, the most comprehensive protection available in a portable AC power conditioner.
