i just want everyone to know..........


i had gone back and forth and heard the pro’s and con’s of a power conditioner. even talking to many manufacturers and  some one high up at shunyata that sells them, and he told me if you just get a dedicated outlet that’s all you really need.. and that is what I had. lighting hit my box the other day and since I leave my amp on 24/7 I was advised to get a good power strip. it made sense, so I purchased the furman pst 8 for $94, for immediate protection. right out of the box did it change my system characteristics, better detail, better dynamics, better sound stage/image, better everything. I immediately ordered another one for my wifes system. it has a coax for the cable, don’t see much difference there. its big, solid and seems well built, please look into this at this price point, just trying to inform the masses......

It does not matter where it's made as long as it's made well.you would surprised how much stuff is made in China. It is usually well supervised by the design and manufacturer team despite where said product is ultimately assembled. 
If you want a real power conditioner, GIGIWATT. I own the PowerPrime. Not cheap, but YES, they work. 
I use a 30 amp dedicated circuit.  It is in my ex-laundry room, which now is my equipment room.  The speaker wire runs through the wall behind this stuff. The transformers in my amps can draw 2000 watts, so a standard 15 amp circuit is out of the question, and a 20 amp dining room, kitchen, garage, washer, is not enough.  If your amps have small caps and/or do not have regulated power supplies,  a power conditioner can emulate such for your system.  My amps have 16 26000 mf caps (4 per channel, bi-amped),  with the 4 500 watt trannies, plus a chip regulated supply, so it is not an issue.
bob540, I had kicked it around for some time, like I said.  glad I got one, well satisfied....

audioman58 I got 2 from music direct some time ago,  they do work well.  
kcroyals, then this might be what you need, I too had the same problem, but 94 dollars is a good price for such a well made product......
