Awesome Product!!!I bought one of these for my first DJ setup... about 12 years ago. I have been a Furman fan ever since. Very solid construction. It has been dropped, banged off of walls, dropped, stepped on and dropped. I thought I broke it once when I tripped over it, but all I did was hit the power switch. Did I mention that I've dropped it? I currently have the Furman Merit M-8x² in my rack and was going to use the SS-6B for my new turntables and mixer. However, I discovered that SOMEBODY (my daughter) spilled paint all over it. It still works 100%, but the paint is a bit of an eyesore. The new one is coming out of her allowance lol.

Nice productDoes exactly what I need it for. I bought 2 of them when they were on sale and wished I'd have gotten a few more. I actually do notice a "quieter" system while using this, which you wouldn't expect from a product at this price.

HIGHLY recommended!More then a great surge protector - you should note the EMI and RFI noise reduction. This isn't much different then what you would find in the Merit series of power conditioners. I bought one for a large guitar rig that already has some clean power supplies.
...and I was blown away. My rehearsal space has AWFUL wiring. All of the power is coming through power conditioners as it is, and it's still not enough. After I added the SS-6B, the noise on my rig cleared up. I wasn't expecting that at all. I suppose it was JUST enough filtering on top of the other power conditioners to clean it up. Either that, or all of our other surge protectors suck. Either way, why wouldn't you trust it?

I Really Like This Surge ProtectorI like the extra long 15' cord, and I also like the way it accommodates the really big plugs, enabling six plug-ins no matter the size.

Furman SS-6B 6 Outlet Power StripThe protection you get gives you peace of mind. The build quality is out standing! The fifteen foot cord is very handy. The cord could be more flexible, it is very stiff and cumbersome. Absolutely a worthwhile investment. Sweetwater is great to do business with.

great little power source for powered mainsunit should have come with a cord tie or something...the cord is very thick. it is an excellent unit though.

Quality unitIt would be hard to generate a long review for a power strip, but this is one quality unit so I thought a few words to prospective buyers would be helpful.
First off, I have experienced absolutely no electrical noise, even running five or six pedals (some high gain).
Other than that, there is ample room around each socket for fat plugs, and the cord is both super long, and of high quality.
Actually, the entire unit seems very well built. I was definitely satisfied with the purchase.

Problem SolvedThe 15 foot cable...excellent. The lighted switch...great. But what about the performance, right? There's this one old building that I run sound in often, with filthy power and tons of grounding problems. Ground lifts have been tried...and failed. So I powered up the bass rig with the SS-6B Power Strip. While it didn't completely remove ALL the noice, it took it down dramatically so that I was able to run the signal direct for the first time instead of micing the bass cabinet. Well worth the nice price!

Should have bought 5Something you should have at least 5. Especially if you do local one offs, with bands bringing Wallyworld power strips to plug in 10 pedals, amps, fans.
The long cord is a great.

Furman SS-6BHave only had it a short time, but its definetly a few grades above any thing i could get localy. Built sturdy and gig ready, love that 15" cord. the only thing i noticed on most multy outlet box's thou is it appears all companies put rather light wire size, !4 or 16 gauge, would be nice to see the nicer stuff like this in a 12 , i realize 14 is adeiquit but nice to have things slightly over built.. but i do like this. thanks..
