Furman M-8Dx Merit X Series 8 Outlet Power Conditioner & Surge Protector - with LED Voltmeter & Dual Lights

You Pay: $99.95

The Furman M-8Dx Merit X Series 8 Outlet Power Conditioner is a low-cost AC power solution for rack mount systems. Install an M-8Dx 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.

The M-8Dx features a digital bright red, 3digit LED voltmeter that displays the incoming line voltage from 60 to 150 VAC (accuracy +/- 2 VAC). It also includes two pull-out light tubes for rack illumination, with dimmer control.

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 accomodate 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 may be easily reset by pushing in a button.
A convenient master switch for the rear outlets which glows when the power is on. There is a separate "Rack Lights" switch for the lamps, plus a dimmer control knob which regulates the lamps' brightness.
Standard level filtration from radio frequencies and electromagnetic interference.

              I almost got the cheaper version without the voltmeter and the lights. Glad i didn't. The volt meter lets you know what you are working with. It doesn't change anything. But it is nice to know,and it looks cool. The lights are quite useful to see your controls in a dim lit room. When I purchased it was on sale and a great deal. It is worth the money at the regular price.

                    I bought this to replace a similar unit (that had an intermittent power switch) by another company in my keyboard rack. I have a furman power conditioner in my studio effects rack that I bought in 1980 and never had a problem with it. I've learned my lesson. Price difference was negligible and the reliability of furman products are incredible.

                      Use it in my rackmount to protect my gear.
                      It's also great for cleaning the back of the rack, since I'm recording on location most of the time.

                        I use this power conditioner to power my 4 pieces of rack gear and my large LCD monitor. Because I live in an old house I am wary of voltage spikes which could damage my gear. The Furman seems to be doing well reducing noise in my all around setup as well as improve the performance of my television's contrast and detail. I also like the pop out lights for live shows.

                        The voltage display is also useful for gaging power during "in the cuts" live setup.

                        I will buy another one soon as it is only rated for 15amps.

                              I do a number of outdoor weddings as I am from Bermuda. The biggest problem I face is power issues. The M-8Dx ensures me that I have enough power to run my equipment along with filtering out any unnecessary noises.

                                  Had the M-8DX for a few weeks now, and I couldn't be happier. There isn't really much to say since we haven't been struck by lightning.

                                  the only thing I would change is have the power button be backlit. other than that its fine.

                                            When working with live audio, a clean signal is the only exceptable signal. Keep it clean and conditioned.

                                              Considering I have never owned any rack gear in the past, this product really delivers!

                                              Great craftsmanship, performance and options.

                                              Folks, this is a nice power conditioner at a great price. I would recommend anyone with nice gear worth protecting get one of these units. It is solidly built and the voltmeter gives an accurate reading of the supply voltage available to your stuff. I like the way it has a 'protection ok' light to warn you if the unit took a nasty surge and is no longer working. The outlets are very strong assuring a good tight connection with your gear.

                                              now I know why I always see these things on Nracks. Best feature? Shuts of those bits of gear that don't have power buttons with a power button on the front!
                                              Has an accurate voltage meter - at least for a home studio.
                                              Got rid of two "on the floor: surge protectors.
                                              Tech support is fantastic. I called about the voltage meter fluctuations. I got a very useful education in electricity. Long story short this Tech set in motion a call to my super who fixed an issue in my fusebox - a potential fire hazard was averted.

                                                  The M8Dx is a great little power conditioner. The lights and the voltage meter are a nice touch so you won't be suprised by a low voltage or high voltage outlet.
