Furman Introduces Elegant New Reference Series Power Conditioners for European Market at CEDIA Expo

Furman Sound, a world-leading provider of AC power management solutions, today announced the release of newly designed IT-Reference 16E and SPR-16E power management products for the European market.

PETALUMA, Calif. - June 11, 2007 - Furman Sound, a world -leading provider of AC power management solutions, today announced the release of newly designed IT -Reference 16E and SPR -16E power management products for the European market. The bold yet elegant new designs feature smooth contours of black steel and silver brushed aluminum complemented by clear blue LED lights, while offering the same performance and technologies Furman's customers have come to rely on.


The new IT -Reference 16E and SPR -16E units will be designated with a letter "i" at the end of each model number to differentiate them from the original series. The newly designed power management products feature the same uncompromising levels of performance customers have come to expect from Furman. The IT -Reference 16E i power conditioner offers Discrete Symmetrical Power to cancel hum -inducing noise from audio and video, Power Factor Technology to provide current on -demand for power -starved amplifiers, and three discrete dual -screen power banks to eliminate intercomponent interference and noise.

The SPR -16E i power voltage regulator provides an ultra -stable 230 VAC supply from excessively low or high AC voltage sources. It is also outfitted with Furman's proprietary Series Multi -Stage Protection Plus (SMP+) technology, which combines three filtering and protection circuits: Linear Filtering Technology™ (LiFT) suppresses noise dramatically and consistently across the entire audio/video frequency range; Series Multi -Stage Protection (SMP) clamps and dissipates damaging transient voltages at the highest degree available without sacrificing itself; and Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) circuitry protects against prolonged overvoltages by shutting off the incoming power until the overvoltage condition is corrected.

"We are very excited about the fresh look of our IT -Reference 16E i and SPR -16E i," said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Furman and Panamax. "We are providing our European customers with a more refined, elegant design that will complement any home theater system. The newly designed units offer the same levels of protection and noise reduction that our customers rely on."

Furman's newly designed IT -Reference 16E i and SPR -16E i will make their debut at CEDIA Expo 2007 this June at ExCeL London and will begin shipping in July. The original power management products will still be available while supplies last. To be one of the first to see the new products, please visit stand H2.
