OVERVIEW

Advanced surge protection that also reduces noise to give you pure AC power.

The Furman PST-8 AC Power Conditioner is equipped with Furman's SMP circuit which dramatically reduces noise, ensuring consistent peak performance from your equipment. The PST-8 Power Station uses Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) to insure that any electronic device (including televisions, projectors, CD-DVD players, or computers) is fed clean, filtered AC power.

Furman pioneered the development of AC power products for the most demanding audio, video, and broadcast professionals. Furman's Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) delivers pure AC power and comprehensive protection-going far beyond what is found in traditional surge strips. With Furman's Power Station Series, everyone can reap the benefits of top-notch power purification and surge protection.

Another feature that is unique to Furman's SMP circuit is automatic Extreme-Voltage Shutdown (E.V.S.). 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.

Today's overworked, outdated power grid delivers poor quality AC power.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 with a quality power conditioner like the PST-8.

Typical AC filters feature antiquated nonlinear 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. The PST-8 features Furman's proprietary Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT), AC noise is suppressed evenly, assuring maximum performance from your system.

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.

FEATURES
Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) provides the highest level of protection available
Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) significantly reduces AC line noise
Extreme Voltage Shutdown (E.V.S.) protects equipment from dangerous overvoltage 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

    Comments about Furman PST-8 Power Station Series AC Power Conditioner:

    I have a high quality power conditioner for use with my home audio equipment and was using an upgrade quality big box computer retailer power strip for my home studio. While checking the MF website I was drawn to power conditioners. The PST-8 fit my need for outlet total and price. Order placed, you know how that works!

    Recently I tracked a cover song, did a quick mix down and emailed a copy to a friend. Received a comment that sound quality was better than ever.

    The only equipment change was adding the PST-8. I did an A / B comparison with previous recording projects and mostly noticed the improved vocal quality, very present and transparent.

    My recording room is located in the opposite corner from the electric service panel of a 45 year old house, plenty of opportunity for electrical noise.

    I believe the power conditioner will provide equipment protection in addition to the improved sound quality experienced from the RODE NT1-A, Resident Audio T4 interface, Cuebase 8, and MacBook Pro.

    I'm very happy with the purchase

      Comments about Furman PST-8 Power Station Series AC Power Conditioner:

      I use this only in my recording studio. Listened to background noise for a good while before I heard of "Conditioner" and I'm not a beginner. That noise is gone. Nothing in the feedback or on the recording. I was surprised at the size (fairly big) - didn't measure but I was thankful for the extra room when I started plugging in all my stuff (and I mean all of it. Last recepticle left open I used for a high quality surge protector. I was very happy to find that the noise conditioning carried through it. Now there's some room to spare. I think I could even do that again with a second surger. I'm very happy.

          Needed to reduce line noise for my Mesa and Laney tube amps in the home music room. This conditioner does a good job, without costing an arm and a leg. The surge protection a plus.
