Sound: It doesn't do anything negative to my sound. It doesn't really do anything positive either, but its not supposed to. It just protects your gear. Feature: The same as the guy below me said, it really is a glorified power strip. The lights are pretty nifty, they do illuminate your rack pretty well, but I don't find a use for them. I don't fault them being there though. Ease of Use: Big button, turn on. Green light means all's good. Turn off, your whole rig powers down. Quality: Not bad. If you have an expensive rig, of course you're going to want to buy a more expensive conditioner, but if you're like me and not made of money, this is a great rack. Value: I got a deal on this but its probably only worth $50. Again, a glorified power strip. Manufacturer Support: Haven't dealt with them yet The Wow Factor: You need a power conditioner if you have a rack. Its just good practice to protect your gear. Overall: I'm gonna hold on to it for a few years until I need to replace it with a higher quality, in which case I will probably be purchasing a higher quality furman.

Overall: It conditions my power which is why I bought it, it's also nice that it has lights and a dimmer know since it's being used for a live setup and you can't be to sure about clean power and great lighting conditions everywhere you go.

Sound: It doesn't make any - seriously, there;s no hum or crackly interference at all. Feature: For my money they could have left off the wimpy lights and put four more sockets on the front. The rheostat for the lights is nice - but an on/off switch for the lights would have been good, too. If the unit is on the lights are on, and they get warm tucked-away inside the thing. Consider taking the bulbs out. Ease of Use: Turn it on. Turn it off. Quality: Well built, solid metal construction, heavy-duty mains cable. Value: It's a tad-bit expensive for what it is. It's just a spike/surge suppressor - there's no actual power conditioning going on. Manufacturer Support: The best support is support you never need. Haven't needed them yet. The Wow Factor: It's a glorified power strip - but it looks nice in my rack. Has a nice LED so you know it's on. A big textured rocker switch. Two wimpy pull-out lights that barely throw enough light to see by. Overall: Would have got a 9 if it had on/off for the lights.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
