Furman's Reference i -Series has been recognized in the U.K. with a 2010 SVI Trade Award for "Best Power Conditioner." Taking home HiFi Plus magazine's "Product of the Year" award in 2009, the IT -Reference 16E i features Discrete Symmetrically Balanced Power, Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT), SMP/EVS professional -level AC protection, and Power Factor Technology to provide home theater systems with a pristine, balanced, low -impedance power supply to ensure unparalleled performance.
