THe Furman is not a 'regenerator'. It is a power conditioner.

Big difference between a conditioner and a regenerator.

A regenerator is really a heavy duty amplifier, designed to output 60Hz.
The cost of running one is higher, since you are basically running an amplifier to power all your other stuff. I own a regenerator also. A PS Audio P600 (I use it for just my digital stuff)

A conditioner does not regenerate the AC power. It cleans the power up.
A conditioner often has a transformer and maybe some other types of filters in it.
The transformer is the main filtering agent in the Furman. Most of the weight in it is just the huge toriodal transformer. (My Furman also has a huge automotive style stiffening capacitor in it. A capacitor used this way keeps the voltage from sagging if a big current drain hits it))

(PS if you get buyers remorse, pm me and I will buy your new to you Furman off you, depending how far it is to ship! From San Diego, Hawaii or Alaska... ahhhh ??? I am in SE Wisconsin BTW. LOL)

Anyway, also, you might (in the future, like a year from now..) see if you can just buy the rear panel with US duplex openings which will fit your IEC backed Furman.
Swapping out the parts is mostly a mechanical bit of work. (no soldering)
And it would let you fill in the US duplex holes with the ones of your choice.
I just looked at my Furman and the back panel is a bolt on separate, and I bet most of the Furman top of the line are the same size box, with various bits installed. Anyway just a thought if you ever want to convert the back of it.
Good luck.

PS I do not think using the adaptors you need will hurt the performance enough to worry about it...
