Anyone have any suggestions for a good single-rack-space power conditioner??
Plenty of threads on this already. Do a search on power conditioners or Furman and you'll pull them up fast. Plenty of good info.
you'll find tons of threads on this in effects and or misc. Also, opinions vary widley on the nessesity of them, and how much they actually offer for the money, and if they are worth it. I use a furman pl-pro, which is good for things like lightning strikes, but that is a pretty expensive one. You can get one for a hack of a lot less if all you really want it for is the convenience of having a multiple plug power source in your rack.
actually, one thing that doing a search won't do is bring up information on the new Series 2 Furman units. These use a much better design than the older furmans and all the other competitors like my samson (in my sig) that are based on regular MOV design and 3 conductor sheilding. the new series uses LC filters to filter out noise instead of shuting spikes to the ground and having your MOV burn out over time.
so id recommend any of the series 2 units from furman. if you can go without the bells and whistles, then just get the basic one, and you'll be fine
oh yeah the new ones also use LEDs insetad of the regular bulbs, and have a connector on the back for a gooseneck bnc light, which i have on my samson and find invaluable to be able to see my rack's back because its so dark in there and i have a lot of cables running everywhere.
Wrong. The last time a thread was opened on this subject a few weeks ago, the Furman Series 2 were in fact discussed. No need to rehash it here.
what the. nice try eric, but i did a search even before i replied, and there is no prior discussion of series LC filtering vs. standard mov designs that the series 2 changes from the performance series in any of the threads. there is only one post that is one sentence long from a person other than me that even mentions that furman series 2 has series protection design, thats thats all, no further discussion, there's even an unanswered question
if you want you could show me how my post was a rehash of anything, and i'll bow out, but i'm still under the impression that my input was new, especially with the feature differences between the old and new line.
Furman's series 2 and SMP are discussed in this thread. All power conditioner threads were moved to the "Misc" forum not too long ago, per the sticky thread:
There's even a link within that thread that leads to specifics about Furman Series 2/SMP information. Perhaps you should try it.
