Clean Power for Stunning Audio-Video Clarity
For small to moderate sized home theater systems, the Elite-15 DMi provides a huge performance punch. Featuring 13 filtered outlets, the Furman delivers stunning audio-video clarity and the most advanced surge protection available.
The Elite-15 DM i upgrades and enhances the Elite series with an improved power supply that's quieter than ever, thanks to wide-bandwidth LiFT Linear Filtering Technology.
The dimmable front panel meters allow precise measurements of the incoming AC line and current loads. They're a valuable asset when monitoring systems that are connected to today's potentially poor power grids.
"I spent a night listening to my home system fully Furmanized and I have to say, in complete sincerity, I cannot remember the last performance upgrade I made in my system that moved the sound quality up (opened the door so much) as these 'optional' components," reports the September 2008 issue of Custom Retailer magazine.
Solution-Based Conditioning Technology
For over 33 years, Furman has pioneered the development of AC power products for the most demanding audio, video, and broadcast professionals. Though the need for pristine AC power is nothing new, the Elite-15 DM i's technology and its unique implementation are revolutionary and without peer.
The extreme AC demands encountered in the professional audio/video arena have required technological developments far in excess of typical home theater/audiophile power products. In studios, live sound, and broadcast facilities, breakdown is unacceptable. Equipment failure or poor performance is costly. The same is true of today's home theater. Furman's solution based technology, extensive engineering expertise, and robust build quality have answered the challenge of today's corrupted power lines, and led to the creation of the Elite-15 DM i.
Linear Filtering Technology
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. This 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.
With Furman's exclusive Linear Filtering Technology, televisions, projectors, DVD players, amplifiers, and processors are fed linearly-filtered AC power. This dramatically reduces noise, ensuring consistent peak operation regardless of load conditions or the time of day. For the first time, you will see and hear your theater or audio system as it should be: uncompromised.
Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus
Today's power grid commonly experiences numerous electrical surges and spikes on a daily basis. At best, these irregularities can degrade your equipment's performance, and, at worst, can severely damage your entire system.
The Elite 15-P safeguard your gear via Furman's exclusive Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) featuring Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS). This virtually maintenance-free surge suppression assures the highest level of AC protection possible, without sacrificing itself when the off ending surge is severe. No damaged equipment. No service calls. No down time.
Conventional AC conditioners employing older technologies leak voltage to circuit ground, which can, in fact, aid in damaging sensitive digital circuits such as computer processors. Furman's new technology, however, never directs voltage to the circuit ground further ensuring the safety of your equipment.
Dual Front Panel Meters
Furman's digital AC voltage and current meters allow precise measurements of the incoming AC line and current loads. These meters are a valuable asset when monitoring systems that are connected to today's potentially poor power grids. The meters may be dimmed when monitoring is not required.
The Elite-15 DM i also features remote control capability via 12V triggering, compatible with the 12V triggering devices commonly found in power receivers and pre-amp processors. Additional products (such as a remote subwoofer) can be daisy-chained from the 12V output jack for an additional triggered unit. The 12V triggering feature may be bypassed if desired.
When employing the Elite-15 DM i, you will notice far clearer, stunningly focused sound and visual images from your system. Video presentation will be crisp and colors true with greater gray and black scale definition, as well as noticeably improved depth and clarity. Many of the technological advances previously available only in our flagship Reference Conditioners are cornerstones of the Elite series. Now everyone can reap the benefits of unrivaled power purification and unequalled surge suppression.
"I spent a night listening to my home system fully Furmanized and I have to say, in complete sincerity, I cannot remember the last performance upgrade I made in my system that moved the sound quality up (opened the door so much) as these 'optional' components."
"Every single aspect of the sound through this system is dramatically superior to the same system without the Furman line conditioners. No matter how you like to dissect the sound to describe it, those things all got better. Bass extension and control, tonal balance and color palette, human-sounding voices, all aspects of realistic 3-D imaging, dynamics - the whole envelope is pushed much farther out. I even had my power amp plugged into Furman's Power Factor conditioner. This was always the last hurdle that no power conditioner we had auditioned could come close to jumping, but the Furman did it great."
