I owned the Premier and the 9200 but not at the same time. In my experience, and most folks as well, you will not be able to plug your integrated into the Premier without affecting the dynamics, and rolling off the upper midrange and highs. I'd go straight to the wall with the 9200 and get a good ac receptacle. If you can, a dedicated line too. I know of a few guys who have all their gear plugged into the Premier and like the results, but only a few. It is a matter of a person's individual system and the sound they like. But, the odds are against you getting good results plugging electronics into it. I used the Premier for my cdps only. Even used with sources only it limited the high end and dynamics somewhat. Some guys have had great results with the Premier and would not be without it. So, it's a matter of trying it out to see if it works well within your setup. You might like what it does or might not. One great thing about the Premier is it's resale value. Purchase it hear used at a good price, and if you want to resell later you'll likely get an equal return on your original investment. I've never used Furman. Also, you're comparing an AC regenerator (Premier) to an AC conditioner (Furman). You risk the sonic quality of your system with most of these devices, in my opinion. If you can't try the device out before you buy, then buy at a good used price and make sure it will resell fairly easy if it doesn't reap improvements in your system. Good luck.
