    I'm thinking the Furman R-8L. What would you guys recommend? I mean, it's a power conditioner I don't wanna spend a whole lotta money on one.

    Well, you have to spend enough so it'll do what it's supposed to do, right?

    Furman is the industry standard, but the RP-8 (probably what you meant) is itself an import sold by Furman. Specs are not quite as good as the US made PL units which are about $50 more. $50 is chump change if your rack is full of expensive gear.

    If you don't have a rack, a good power strip like you would use for a computer has pretty much the same current-limiting and ground-isolating stuff in it that the rackmounts do. Cheaper, too.

    No lights, meters, or decorator colors, though...
