New: The item is brand new as received from the manufacturer with a full manufacturer warranty. Instruments such as guitars, snare drums, drum kits, brass and woodwind instruments may be opened for photography and quality control inspection and may not be in a factory sealed box.

Mint or Open Box: The item may have been opened and tested but has been repackaged. The original packaging may have superficial issues but the item itself and any originally included accessories are in perfect, like new condition.

Display Model: These items are so cool that we put them on display in our legendary shop. The condition is brand new as received from the manufacturer with manufacturer warranty. Rest assured, these items undergo a very careful inspection before shipping.

Demo: These items have been on our sales floor for demo purposes and will likely show signs of use. The original packaging may no longer be included, but you can be assured that you are receiving an awesome item and an awesome price.

Used: The item is used. These item may have varying degrees of wear. Please read the description for information about the condition of the item. Used items do not carry a warranty.

B or C Stock: Factory refurbished. These items were purchased from the manufacturer in a refurbished condition. They will show some cosmetic issues, but nothing that would impact performance. Being that these are sealed from the manufacturer, we generally do not open these to photograph the cosmetic issues. They are guaranteed to work and may have a limited warranty or you may purchase an extended warranty in some cases. Please see the listing description for item specific information.


Protect Your Investments With The Furman P-8 Pro C Classic Series Power Conditioner

The P-8 PRO C features Furman's venerable Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) circuit as well as their exclusive Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT). Together, these technologies comprise what is, without question, the worlds most advanced and comprehensive transient voltage surge suppressor/conditioner.

SMP (Series Multi-Stage Protection)

Furman's SMP surge suppression virtually eliminates service calls. Traditional surge suppression circuits "sacrifice" themselves when exposed to multiple transient voltage spikes, requiring the dismantling of your system, and repair of your surge suppressor. Not so with SMP. With Furman's SMP, damaging transient voltages are safely absorbed, clamped, and dissipated. Unique to Furman's SMP is its clamping voltage level. While other designs offer clamping voltages that are well above 330 Vpk, Furman's SMP clamps at 188 Vpk, (133 VAC RMS). This level of protection is only available with Furman's SMP technology. Additionally, Furman's trusted over-voltage circuitry protects against frequent and accidental connections to 208 or 240 VAC, by shutting off the incoming power until the over voltage condition is corrected.

LIFT (Linear Filtering Technology)

Unfortunately, traditional AC filters/conditioners have been designed for unrealistic laboratory conditions. Prior technologies, whether multiple pole filter or conventional series mode, could actually harm audio and video performance more than they help, due to the resonant peaking of their antiquated, non-linear designs. Under certain conditions, these designs can actually add more than 10 dB of noise to the incoming AC line! Worse still, lost digital data, the need to re-boot digital pre-sets, or destroyed digital converters are frequently caused by excessive voltage spikes and AC noise contaminating the equipment ground. Furman's SMP with LiFT takes another approach, ensuring optimal performance through linear filtering and no leakage to ground.

EVS (Extreme Voltage Shutdown)

Transient spikes and ground contamination are not the only problems faced by today's sensitive electronics. There are also sustained over voltage conditions, sometimes called extreme voltages. Many surge suppression devices will not be able to protect equipment from sustained over voltages. These conditions can occur for multiple reasons: a power pole may be damaged during a storm or accident; or, in many countries, such as USA and Canada, lost or intermittent neutral wiring of a multiple-zone system can result in a sudden connection well in excess of 208 volts AC. Many surge suppression devices are not equipped to handle these kinds of conditions. Without proper protection, the end result is destroyed equipment, or at best, a destroyed surge suppression system.

Furman's EVS constantly monitors incoming voltage, and once any overvoltage condition over 137 volts AC is detected, a relay opens which immediately shuts down the unit and all connected equipment. An indicator light informs the user there is a problem, and once the condition has been corrected, the unit may be reset and will operate normally.
