Pleasant surprise

I ordered this unit primarily for surge protection and the need for an 8-outlet strip, I wasnt particularly in need of nor convinced of its capabilities as a power line conditioner. I was wrong. While it is certainly serving its intended purposes well, I was really pleasantly surprised by the difference a high quality *power strip* makes with my A/V system performance. An immediate difference was noted with video, my new-ish 60 inch Samsung LED fed by Sony Blue Ray and Directv is simply sharper with much better tone and color resolution, and depth of field is more 3 dimensional - I am not a techie so forgive the simplistic characterizations - but the long and short of it is noticeably improved performance. Likewise with audio, its as if a veil was lifted. I have newer gear including 2 NAD 275BEE amps running in bridged mono, 165BEE preamp, 565BEE CD, AQ King Cobra interconnects, Morrow Audio SP5 speakers cables, Pangea HD24PCe HDMIs, and Sonus Faber Liuto speakers; I was shocked that the Furman PST8D made the most noticeable difference, contributing to better soundstage and detail than almost any other individual upgrade. I was and remain somewhat skeptical of snake oil upgrades in hi-fi, but this was a real find and a bargain to boot. Highly recommended.
