        I highly recommend protecting your gear with Furman products. Don't become a victim of bad line voltage or power surge. It should be a no-brainer if you have big money in gear that it should be protected to the best of your ability. Don't be cheap. Protect your investments with a power conditioner

          Great product - very functional and good looking! Fits great in the rack and the LED lights are such a great idea - they light up all theother components below. And of couse we feel bbeter now with power conditioning in place.

          Good Power Conditioner

          By tJ

          from MN

          Comments about Furman PL-8 C Power Conditioner:

          Reputable brand, makes me feel that my equipment is protected from power surges, as well as receiving EMI/rfi filtering to enhance audio quality. The lights are good to light up a rack below it and the LED color is average(seems orange in spots). It would be nice if they could angle up to light the desk in front of the rack (in my case).Also, note that this is a pretty deep unit and you'll need a full depth rack (as opposed to a shallow rack that fits the cheaper versions and other smaller equipment like effects processors or compressors.

            Comments about Furman PL-8 C Power Conditioner:

            We have recently purchased the Furman Power Conditioner for use in our sound and light booth in a suburban school district in upstate new york. The power conditioner was delivered on time, with all of the contents in pristine condition and was put to work right away. After a quick review of the owners manual, (an easy and concise read) the unit has provided excellent filtering and we haven't had a problem. I enjoy the three plugs that are spaced for "wall warts"- extra large power packs that usually take up two to three plugs on other units. We're planning to run antenna distribution systems and the sound board through this unit and looking forward to a clean, filtered sound without any disruptions.

                        There are more expensive conditioners out there, but this one does the same thing for less money. Love the LED lights, they light everything up and don't get hot.

                              This unit is deep enough that the back side doesn't get sunken in between deeper rack gear. This is very helpful when attaching wall wart type plug ins such as the Lexicon prosessors or just basically plugging anything in once it's been rack mounted. Seems to work as advertised as it does filter some audible junk from the regular line voltage. Build quality is good and the unit is heavier than most. Although I wasn't interested in the pop out lights they also are proving to be quite usefull.

                              As ususal, the Furman PL-8C povides power protection and front lighting (LED) that lets me relax and forget about surges and RFI. Note the edges near the mounting holes are raised. This caused me to have to trim my SKB roto rack so the cover could fit properly. No big issue, but worth noting.

                                  Comments about Furman PL-8 C Power Conditioner:

                                  This is a great unit to replace outlet strips and cheap surge suppressors. The power absorption of this unit is dramatically higher than a typical surge suppressor. I mounted this rack mount style unit on the back of my entertainment center. It is low profile and it does not take up valuable space nor do I have to look at it. I live in the lighting capital of the United States and now have two units; one for my audio system and another for my video system. I do not need a ups on these systems but feel much safer with these high quality power protection units. If you have a significant investment in your equipment that you would like to keep, you need this unit.

                                  The manufacturer has a good technical/customer support! After 20+ years on my first unit, I developed some problems (false shutdowns). I e-mailed their customer support, and found that the old unit had been sold with a lifetime warranty. They offered an upgrade or replacement with an equivalent unit for nominal shipping charges. I understand their warranty on currently sold units is not lifetime, but I have respect for a company that actually honors a lifetime warranty on a 20+ year old unit made by a company they aquired.
                                  The new unit I bought is heavier, suggesting a more robust level of protection. I like it so much that I did not send it back after I managed to get my first unit repaired.

                                  Hi. Not much to say here as this is a pretty basic product. Seems to work great and I love the extra outlet on the front. Led lights are nice and bright and the power cord seems to be a nice heavy gauge. My only complaint is where it's made. I have and older Furman that's made in the USA. I would gladly pay a little more for the American made product.....

                                    This is my second time buying this exact Furman. I am a mobile DJ and this was racked in my smaller rig. The new one operates just as good as the one I've had for over a year.

                                    Traveling and being able to setup in a matter of minutes with the rackmounted unit is excellent. I don't have to worry about running all my audio equipment through this unit.

                                    Two JBL EON XTs, DDM4000, Shure wireless mic, and two LED Electro Swarm lights. Plus a laptop and a few other miscellaneous gadgets. All performed without a hitch.

                                    It does have some weight to it, which IMHO shows that it is a quality product. Be sure that you are able to carry around your rig with ease before you put this in.

                                    Great product overall!

This PL-8 C is an important part of my set up. People expect me to deliver as I am making hot records and remixes. This thing is a boss. Period.

                                              You know how they say that they just don't make things like they used to? I think this power conditioner, along with similar power conditioners from Furman could last 20 years with the proper care. This unit is very robust and has an elegant simplicity with just two LEDs to let you know what's up. The outlets are very high quality and they "grab and hold" the male end of edison cable nicely. This was purchased for the protection of a workstation, and the quality is worth every penny of the modest price tag.

                                                This is a very good, and relatively inexpensive, bit of protection to have. It has caught several power spikes and problems over the years, and acts as a buffer in a brown out.

                                                I'm putting together an AV rack to hold Receiver, DVD, Turntable,etc. I bought the Furman PL-8C more for the top of rack lighting than the Power Conditioning. Its two retractable lights on the front light ups the front of the rack. The BNC connection on the back allows me to use a goose neck lamp on the back of the rack to help me see to connect everything. The power connections are a huge plus too. Very good box at a great price.
