im putting this in as many forums as i can..........


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......

Okay, lets see how this one goes...
So people that manufacturer or sell power conditioners were advising that you don't need one?Unusual.... And a direct lightening strike didn't wreak havoc on your electrical system?Ok.
Direct hits from lightening can blow the nails out of yer sheetrock. No damage from a direct strike seems unusual...hmmm...Also note there's a "shift" key on your computer for a less lazy or silly looking lack of punctuation to make posts seem like they matter a little (or a lot) more.
I had a direct lightning strike to the property. Burnt the roof. FD called. Took out GFI breakers, routers, refrigerator, cablebox, fuses in amps (only damage thankfully), coffee maker. Oh, the explosive bang and flash of light was.. freakin’ amazing. No powerstrip can protect against that. You’d need an electric panel-based one-shot unit to even have a shot of protection.
noromance, was told that by my electrician, will be getting me a new box soon, with those or updated features.....
