There are no power issues where i live.
The Furman is merely an IEC distribution box for 10 connections being switched on via 1 button in a handy package.
Actually, Richie is completely right: I very highly doubt that there are no power issues where you live.
Unless you built your house knowing that there was going to be a mastering studio in it, with class-A audio equipment in it, then you have all kinds of power issues going on.
You are actually one of the very few people on this forum who will be able to hear a noticeable difference, especially for what you're doing.
Unless you have a discrete power circuit just for your studio, which is completely separate from your main electricity circuits including a power conditioner between the main street feed and that discrete circuit then you most certainly have power issues that will affect your audio.
Also, every single piece of eqiupment (pro audio or not) is sending a dirty signal right back along those connections, meaning that even if you do have a discrete circuit after the fuses/breakers, all your kit, you lights, your screens, your phone chargers, (etc, etc) are all fucking up your power.
With kit like that, power conditioning is a must have. The furman distro does nothing apart from in line capacitance so while it will stop spikes, it's not removing any of the interferance that all those outlets and equipment are inducing in each other.
You really should invest in a few Furman power conditioners
