    I need a rack mount power conditioner with the shallowest depth on the market. Any ideas??? Furman is preferred, (already got the M-8x2 on the radar), but any brand will do. So far 4" is the shallowest depth I've found..anyone know of any shorter ones?? Thanks!

    As long as you don't need front rack lights, the shallowest I know is a power strip velcroed to the inside of the rack. All the functionality of the standard Furman power "conditioners" at a fraction of the size and cost.
     
  3. If you are going to buy a power conditioner, don't just buy any random one. You need to get one with a voltage meter, lights, a fuse, voltage stabilizer, isolating filters and amperage conversion. They run about $2,300 on the low end to $4,500 for a really decent one, and you'll totally notice a difference in your sound.
