FURMAN IT-REFERENCE DISCRETE SYMMETRICAL AC POWER CONDITIONER
Discrete Symmetrical AC Power Conditioner (4 x 5 Amp discrete AC taps - 20 Amp total load)
The IT-Reference Discrete Symmetrical AC Power Source is a no-compromise, no-expense-spared design, with painstaking attention paid to the ultimate sonic and visual impact of every component we employ. It is the flagship product for Furman, a company that has pioneered the development of AC power products. But the IT-Reference's technology and its unique implementation are revolutionary. The extreme demands encountered in the professional audio/video arena have required technological developments far in excess of typical home theater/audiophile power conditioner applications.
This technology and engineering expertise, combined with critical real-world evaluation, led to the creation of the IT-Reference. With the IT-Reference's exclusive Discrete Symmetrical Power, video monitors, preamps, compact disc transports, DVD players, multi-channel processors, DAC's, and turn-tables are fed ultra-low noise balanced power. This provides two benefits: not only does it ensure the lowest noise possible from your home's AC supply, but it also balances the power so that noise can neither penetrate nor radiate from your components' AC cables. Further, our Discrete Symmetrical Power features total isolation between each of four discrete AC banks (two outlets per bank). This positively breaks noise inducing ground loops and power supply backwash between interconnected equipment, without compromising electrical safety. This enables a video monitor to function without AC ground contamination from a compact disc player, or a preamp to function free of performance-degrading digital noise from a DAC.
The IT-Reference also employs a unique Power Correction Circuit. For the first time low-level analog, digital, and video components are not modulated or distorted via the power amplifier's AC demands. Further, the power amplifier sees a highly filtered, extremely low-impedance supply of AC power. The IT-Reference, in fact, has in excess of 8 Amps of current reserve for the most extreme peak power demands. This ultra-low-impedance AC correction/filter enables power amplifiers and powered subwoofers to reach levels of performance previously unattainable. No longer will your amplifier's performance be at the mercy of your home's incoming AC power, or inferior AC protection/filtering devices.The net effect is as if your power amplifier doubled in power, and improved immeasurably in quality. When employing the IT-Reference you will immediately notice far clearer, stunningly focused sound and visual images from your system. Video presentation will be crisp and colors true. Sonic transients will be startlingly fast with bass fundamentals that shake foundations with their weight and visceral impact. Mid and high frequencies will bloom with sweet, non-glaring ease and imaging will improve dramatically, all the while remaining true to your system's inherent virtues.
