An update to Furman’s Power Factor Pro R, the P-1800 PF R features the company’s surge, spike and voltage technologies, as well as their new Clear Tone and Power Factor technologies, designed specifically for high-current electronic gear like guitar amps and powered studio monitors. We’re talking 45-plus amps of instantaneous reserve current and tuned filtering circuits that allow your amp to perform like it should—regardless of a whether a venue’s stage outlets are powering five neon beer signs and the kitchen’s deep freeze.
A digital voltmeter/ammeter takes the mystery out of current draw, while nine outlets (one on the front) in isolated banks give you more than you should need for a single rig. Extra touches include three wallwart-spaced outlets with securing straps, a BNC connector in the back for your gooseneck lamp, and even a front panel USB outlet.
Our demo unit handled amp testing in various circuits with aplomb, providing slightly to dramatically cleaner sound (not to mention peace of mind) when A/B’d with a Furman Merit X Series conditioner, a number of strips, and no conditioner at all.
