The Furman PB-40 is your run of the mill patch bay, consisting of 40 points in a single space rack mountable unit. It has all 1/4" TRS connections, and is all around quite standard for a TRS based patch bay. I've used the PB-40 on its own in a smaller home studio, but you can definitely get a few of these and use them as a full on patch bay in a professional studio if you so choose. That's pretty much all that you need to know in terms of characteristics, and it really isn't much to know at all. The PB-40 seems to have a pretty good build as well, although since I don't own myself I can't say how well it will hold up over time. Having said this, I think that as long as you treat it properly and don't move it around violently too much, you should be all set. There are a whole slew of 40 point patch bays available, including that made by Tascam which I have also used, and I have to say that I really don't see a difference at all. A 40 point 1/4" TRS patch bay is going to be what it is regardless of who makes it, granted that it is made with the right equipment and isn't made incredibly cheaply. Basically what I'm saying is that if you're in the market for a patch bay of this size, I'd do a comparison of the price between brands as the first thing to look at. The price of the Furman PB-40 is very reasonable and is right in the range of what you should expect for a patch bay like this. There isn't too much more to say that I haven't said, but the bottom line is that the PB-40 is a solid patch bay that will get the job done for anyone who needs a 1/4" TRS patch bay of this size...
