Electricity. It’s necessary to run your sound system – but can come at a price. The AC power your system runs on can cause annoying hum and buzz distortion in your audio. It’s distracting to your performer, your live audience and certainly nothing you want to preserve in a recording.
The “Noise” you are hearing is generally defined as any voltage at a frequency other than 60 Hz. The “Buzz” you hear are actually harmonics of 60 Hz, generally 3rd, 5th, 7th, etc. and are usually the largest components of ‘Noise’. Not to mention common electrical surges and spikes and other harmful AC events can put your valuable equipment at risk.
How to clean your sound? A good Power Conditioner will both filter and cleanse incoming AC power and dramatically improve your equipment’s performance. Your audio sounds better and your video looks cleaner.
The average surge suppressor or power strip offers little in the way of protection and doesn’t filter or clean contaminated power at all. However, Furman power conditioners always offer three levels of protection and purification:
- Noise Filtration – (LiFT) AC Power filtering to ensure clean power for unequaled audio & video clarity
- Voltage Protection – Advanced EVS circuitry detects dangerous voltage irregularities and safely powers down itself and connected equipment in unsafe conditions.
- Surge Protection – Furman’s exclusive SMP technology provides the highest level of surge & spike protection available.
There are a variety of features on a Power Conditioner – which is right for you depends on your system and your needs.
You can choose between 15 or 20 amp version – and a model with or without Voltmeters and Ammeters:
