@phthora Ended up getting the Furman M-8X2 and the Pangea AC-14. After hooking everything up, the first thing I noticed was my TV looked a little clearer lol. On the audio side, I do notice better separation and tighter bass (less bass impact, but I may be remembering my DAP instead). The vocals sound slightly different, not sure how though (which was also noticeable through my speakers). Maybe the increased separation makes them sound clearer. The top end either sounds smoother or less present as a result of the mids, so songs don't sound as harsh as they did before. Overall, it doesn't feel like a waste of money, especially now that I'm not using a budget surge protector for my living room set-up!
