Furman, today announced the first product in its new Prestige Series: the P-1800 PF R power conditioner. A successor to Furman’s popular PF-Pro R, the P-1800 PF R is the only power management module engineered specifically for musicians. A fully featured power conditioner, the P-1800 PF R safeguards equipment with comprehensive protection and utilizes Furman’s exclusive Power Factor and Clear Tone Technologies allowing instrument amplifiers to consistently sound their best at different venues. The P-1800 PF R is also ideal for in-studio setups that use powered monitors for playback of recorded material.
Furman’s Power Factor Technology reduces AC line impedance by providing a 45-A peak current reservoir. This gives instrument amplifiers and powered speakers the headroom to operate at maximum efficiency and sound consistent from venue to venue without being subjected to current compression caused by line impedance or resistance. Clear Tone Technology adds an additional level of linear filtration to Furman’s Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) circuit for a lower noise floor, allowing the instrument’s tone and character to be expressed without the masking effects of AC line noise.
With the P-1800 PF R, the visceral impact, clarity, and dynamic range of instrument amplifiers are not hindered by power quality, resulting in a marked improvement in amplifier performance. The power conditioner also provides Furman’s Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) and Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) technologies for professional-level protection from spikes, surges, and dangerous prolonged voltage conditions.
Like all models in Furman’s Prestige Series, the P-1800 PF R features a new industrial design including a blue LED digital voltmeter with a color-coded Voltage Range indicator, and Extreme Voltage and “Protection OK” LEDs. A front-panel USB port charges small electronics such as cell phones and personal media devices, or can be used to power a gooseneck USB lamp.
The new model features eight rear panel outlets in three isolated banks (including two high- current outlets for maximum current delivery to amplifiers) and a front-panel convenience outlet. One bank of outlets on the rear panel is spaced to accommodate bulky wall wart transformers, and features Furman’s innovative “Secure Straps” to lock plugs in place.
