Don't trust your utility company, trust FurmanMy old unit blew up (literally) and that was quite a fireworks show but it was almost 20 years old and parts will go eventually and so I bought the new model (AR-1215) and it's worked perfectly. No matter what the local utility company decided to send me (130 V usually), I can just sit back and grin knowing that my computer, A5X monitors, etc are all getting 120 V, no more, no less. And if the power surges too much, unit goes off. Power goes off? My backup battery kicks in.
If you have a home studio, it is WELL worth the money to protect it over the long haul with this unit.
The unit is DEAD quiet when stepping the voltage up or down within say 10 volts. It gets noisier if it has to maintain a large variance because more coils of the transformer are engaging.
Very pleased and hope this one lasts 20 years.

Furman AR-1215My old (and I do mean old) AR-117 blew up (literally) and I finally decided to buy a new one. I use it in my studio to make sure my stuff is getting 120 V instead of whatever the city decides to pump to my house. I also run a battery backup so no matter what the city or god tries to do to me, I'll always have power AND clean power. It's just like the old one ref looks and layout. It's actually noiseless unless you put your ear right up to it. If it goes into harder regulation, you'll hear a slight hum but within say 10 or 15 V, it's noiseless for all practical purposes.

Exactly!Just what your gear needs, true voltage regulation from spikes and sags. Prolongs the life of your old tube power supplies ect. Can't live without it!

Does it matter?
How can you not?My Sweetwater Corner Man -- Dennis Konicki -- recommended this product to me. Right now I have a Mac and an amp plugged into the Furman. And a storm is coming --- and I have zero worries.
Although I will be moving soon, my current house is a "Gremlin" house -- the voltage is unreliable -- and 3 of my Sweetwater items have, well, "blown up."
But, Sweetwater replaced those items: And I did my part, by getting the Furman Voltage Regulator. Since the Furman -- zero problems. No weird noises; no fizzes or buzzes; no strange hums or volume drops -- nothing but pure regulated power.

It does what it says it will do...Just a simple votage regulator single rack unit that does everything it's advertised to do. Can never go wrong with a Furman product.

Saves your gearThis what you really need if you really want to save your gear. Consistent voltage is so important for digital gear. I have a line6 rig and a digital monitor board hooked up to this - It's fuse recently blew though and I had to go without it for a gig. I could tell I wasn't using it. Screens on the digital console and line6 stuff were dimming. You just have to replace the fuse - and this is very rare. I've used this for over 350 gigs so far and this is the first time.
