20-amp power line conditioner and surge protector with isolation transformer

The IT-Reference 20i has 12 rear-panel AC outlets. A built-in "isolation transformer" feeds noise-free regenerated power to eight of the outlets.

Rock-solid protection for your home theater investment

The IT-Reference 20i is Furman's biggest and baddest power conditioner, tipping the scales at a grunt-worthy 81 pounds. It thoroughly cleans and conditions the AC power that is every audio/video component's lifeblood. Its twelve rear-panel AC outlets can accommodate 20-amp or standard 15-amp AC plugs. Furman originally built their reputation by developing equipment to meet the extreme AC power demands of professional recording, film, and broadcast studios.

An isolation transformer regenerates pristine AC power for your most sensitive gear

All electronic components operate best with a steady supply of clean AC power, and high-definition video equipment like Blu-ray players, flat-panel TVs, and projectors are notoriously finicky. The IT-Reference 20i addresses this issue with a built-in "isolation transformer" that feeds noise-free regenerated power to eight of the rear-panel outlets. That puts a stop to noise-inducing ground loops, and power supply backwash between connected components. You'll see noticeably improved picture detail and deeper black levels.

Power Factor Technology: Like a turbocharger for your amplifiers

Truly exciting sound requires wide-open dynamics. To reproduce instantaneous sonic peaks or "transients" cleanly, like a car crash or a cymbal crash, an amplifier needs lots of high-current power. During these moments, amplifiers - including those in receivers and powered subwoofers - may require more current than is available from your home's AC line.

Solution? Plug your amplifier into one of the IT-Reference 20i's high-current outlets. Furman's unique Power Factor Technology creates a "current reservoir" capable of delivering over 80 amps of peak current. Your amplifier gets the current it needs when it needs it most.

Protection for every pathway

The IT-Reference 20i constantly monitors incoming AC, and if an overvoltage condition is detected, power is automatically shut off to all connected equipment. And Furman's rugged surge suppressor circuitry can withstand multiple catastrophic high-voltage spikes and keep right on protecting your system. Three sets of coaxial inputs and outputs protect your satellite, cable TV and antenna connections. And one pair of protected jacks prevents spikes from sneaking in through your phone line.
