Furman M-8x2 Merit Series 8 Outlet Power Conditioner & Surge Protector

You Pay: $54.99
Product Highlights
  • Rack Mountable

The Furman M-8x2 Merit Series 8 Outlet Power Conditioner is a low-cost AC power solution for rack mount systems. Install an M-8x in the top slot of your rack, and the eight switched AC outlets in the rear panel will power up and protect all your equipment, up to a 15A load.

M-Series conditioners protect your delicate electronic equipment by combining high voltage varistor (MOV) surge and transient suppressors. The fast-acting suppression circuit quickly responds, and clamps transient voltages to safe levels. An RFI/EMI interference filter works to prevent noise from fluorescent lights, certain dimmers, radio transmitters, and similar sources of "electronic pollution" from contaminating the AC line, and from there leaking into sensitive audio, video, or computer circuits.

The rear outlets have been spaced to accommodate even the bulkiest of wall warts and adapters.
A circuit breaker is provided on the rear panel. If the total load on the power conditioner (combining all outlets) exceeds the 15A (or 1800W) limit, the circuit breaker will trip. It can be easily reset by pushing in a button.
The M-8x2 has a convenient master switch for the rear outlets which glows when the power is on.
Standard level filtration from radio frequencies and electromagnetic interference.

        Comments about Furman M-8x2 Merit Series 8 Outlet Power Conditioner & Surge Protector:

        I already have the Furman M-8Lx and just needed the outlets, no frills for another audio effects rack. After I installed the M-8x2 in the rack and trying to plug in the wall warts, quickly realized that the depth does not allow the wall warts to fit in. No vertical space with other 1U or 2U regular depth units.Had to add short zipcord extensions for those wall warts that now are kind of loose in the back. I should have ordered another M-8Lx as it is deeper.Just a caution to those looking for a review. Looking through the other reviews, I see a few that mentioned that.

                        Bought this to protect all of the electronics needed for a portable outdoor movie theatre. We had fans for the inflatable screen, a projector and a 1500w sound system running off this while plugged in as well as on a generator. You can't beat it for the cost.

                              No frills! Just a simple gadget that does what it's suppose to do and does it very well. I use this in my studio with ample lighting so I don't need the pull-out lights. The extra outlet in the front is so useful. Wish there were two :)

                                                  What can I say? It works like it's supposed to, great build quality. For this price you can't beat it. It would be nice if it came with rack mount screws though... but no big deal.

                                                        A pretty simple product really... But works as expected and installed and fit exaclty in the place I needed it. This one is compact at less than 4" deep and allowed me to install in the back of my rack case behind other equipment. Conveiniently accomodates all my power connections with room to spare.
                                                        (Also was shipped very fast and provided in more than adequate packaging)

                                                          These things are so good that I bought two! I have them both rack-mounted in my music desk -- one to operate the iMac and it's peripherals and the other to operate my music gear. With a flip of the front-mounted switch, my music gear comes to life. Launch my DAW and I'm ready to record!Oh yeah - I also have a third one (but with lights) on my gigging bass rig.Seriously, you can't go wrong. Do like I did -- buy some!

                                                          I owned one of these for five years without any trouble and just bought two more. They are well made but inexpensive, and give peace of mind that your gear is protected. It's a nice option if you don't want to pay for front LED lights or meters if you don't need them. A note of caution: The previous version (M-8x) was almost twice as deep; the M-8x2 is considerably shallower. This means it does not protrude very far into the rack, and depending on what you put directly adjacent in your rackspace you might have trouble reaching the outlets in the rear. It also has cleverly spaced outlets to allow for "wall-wart" power supplies, but some such power supplies take up space vertically rather than horizontally. Thus, you can't mount the M-8x2 directly above another rack appliance that is deeper because there will be no room for the vertical wall warts to hang down. These are not problems if you plan accordingly.

                                                          I'm not sure I've ever reviewed a product online before, but I felt compelled to give kudos to this unit. I'm borderline shocked what a difference this unit has made in my two-channel audio system. What a steal for the money. Highly recommended.
