Furman Sound to Debut Elite -20 PF AC Power Conditioner at CEDIA Expo 2005

Ultra-Linear AC Power Source Delivers Unparalleled Power Purification and Protection

INDIANAPOLIS, IN. - - CEDIA BOOTH #730 - - Furman Sound, Inc., the most widely recognized and trusted name in AC power conditioning, today announced the debut of the Elite -20 PF at the 2005 CEDIA show, to be held from September 9 through 11, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. The announcement was made by Dave Keller, Furman's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing.


Mr. Keller stated, "Today's power lines are plagued with RF and EMI noise. When connecting sensitive equipment to your home's power outlet, AC noise couples into your system's critical components. AC noise masks low level signals and cripples performance. This low level content is critical because it relays the crucial harmonics and ambience in audio, as well as the depth and clarity in video."

"All products from Furman Sound address the needs of AV applications that are faced with the reality of the extreme noise and erratic performance delivered by these old and overtaxed utility power supplies," continued Mr. Keller. "Such unreliable power can threaten not only the integrity of the video and audio signals, but also the A/V equipment itself. Furman Sound's new Elite -20 PF enables home theater equipment to operate at maximum efficiency, reaching levels of performance previously unattainable."

Utilizing Furman's new Ultra -Linear Filtering, televisions, projectors, DVD players, amplifiers, and processors are fed pristine AC power for unequaled audio and video clarity. This dramatically reduces noise, ensuring consistent peak operation regardless of load conditions or the time of day. Another critical feature of the Elite -20 PF is the exclusive Series Multi -Stage Protection Plus featuring Extreme Voltage Shutdown. This virtually maintenance -free surge suppression assures the highest level of AC protection possible, without sacrificing itself even when the offending surge is severe.

Furman's Elite -20 PF is the company's first 20 Amp offering in its Elite family of Linear Filtering AC Power Conditioning products. This family currently includes the Elite -15 PF, Elite -15 DM and the Elite -15. Another notable feature of the Elite -20 PF is Furman's unique Power Factor Correction technology. With this circuitry, power amplifiers are fed a highly filtered, extremely low -impedance supply of AC power with a massive current reservoir (55 amp peak charge). The net effect is as if the user's power amplifier virtually doubled in power and improved immeasurably in quality.

When employing the Elite -20 PF, users will immediately notice far clearer, stunningly focused sound and visual images from their system. Video presentation will be crisp and colors true with greater gray and black scale definition, as well as noticeably improved depth and clarity. Sonic transients will be startlingly fast with bass fundamentals that shake foundations with their weight and visceral impact. Mid and high frequencies will bloom with sweet, non -glaring ease as imaging improves dramatically, all the while remaining true to the system's inherent virtues.

The Elite -20 PF will be available by the end of 2005 at the MSRP of $999.
