Following up from our previous customer experience with Furman, the customer has written in to show his enthusiasm for the product.
This client has supplied this list and the following email in his words, after we had a conversation about his experiences using Furman Power Products. His results were nothing short of impressive.
In his own words:
"As mentioned, the main aim of the Furman in this set-up was to see if it would resolve the mysterious problem with the house wiring that had damaged the ATI and the 150i in earlier incidents (curiously, the Pioneer's protection circuit saved it from the same fate, but then they are very easily tripped). Anyway, the Furman looks to have done the job, and the fact that the Pioneer's protection circuit has not come into action since the change seems to confirm this. That aside, the unit has clearly reduced the noise floor and tightened up the overall system's presence, if not as obviously as was the case with the [ Furman Elite ]16i in the other system."
One More Thing:
I should have mentioned that system 2 was running through a Belkin PF 30 power console when the ATI burnt out the second time, so whatever protection it was providing wasn't enough to counter the house wiring problem.
For what it's worth, according to the read-out on the [ Furman Elite ] 10E, voltage down the line is varying between 237 and 245"
