If you are looking for something to power all your rack equipment and amp head in a clean way then look elsewhere. This is not a power conditioner it is simply a voltage meter with rack lights and the ability to power things. I will admit i made the mistake in thinking that it would perform in the same way as power conditioners such as the Furman i ended up buying afterwards. The positives of this product are that the voltage meter is a useful feature that helped me keep an eye on voltage in less that reputable venues. The lights worked well and helped me in low lighting to fiddle with settings on my amp. As far as those functions go i was very happy. the negatives were that when i tried to use this product to power my tube amp head, 4 rack units and a pedal power supply it was incredibly noisy, the buzz at some points became louder than the amp itself. yes it did power the units theres no argument there but i couldn't use it live.
If you want a rack mounted voltage meter and light then this is a pretty good product but if you want something to power all your gear, your going to have to bite the bullet and pay the circa £300 price tag for a power conditioner.
The unit came well packaged, and with a Euro plug. I'm very capable electrically so I had no problem replacing the plug - so that's fine - I'm sure an adapter would work just fine too.
As I'm in the UK the voltage reading is higher than would be expected in Europe (240v vs 220v) so the LED bar graph reads on high side.
I bought this as a way of tidying up my rack unit and fixing the age old 'reach behind the desk to switch stuff on and off conundrum'. It has done this perfectly and made a somewhat annoying task a thing of the past. It also now means that should I want to transport my rack I only have 3 cables to unplug (power, ADAT IN, ADAT OUT). Excellent!
The dim-able (and somewhat redirect-able) lights are also really useful, if you're getting the lights low for a mixing session and you need a quick light to adjust settings - bingo. A nice added extra.
The only down side is that it does NOT come with the IEC->IEC connectors needed to run from the unit to your rack gear. That would be a good thing to mention in the product description.
I didn't buy this thinking it was a conditioner - it is not one. If you're looking for a cheap solution to tidy cables and manage your power this is a bargain.
