Furman M-8X2 8 Outlet Power Conditioner and Surge Protector
Like its Merit series predecessor, the Furman M-8x, the Furman M-8×2 power conditioner is an ideal low-cost AC power solution for any rackmount system, just in a chassis that is 3.5″ shorter. The 1U M-8×2 also has eight switched AC outlets in the rear panel to power and protect all your audio equipment with up to a 15-amp load.
The Furman M-8×2 power conditioner protects your 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 and suppress 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 Furman M-8×2 power conditioner is NRTL/TUV listed.
Furman’s got your back
The M-8×2 is part of Furman’s Merit Series: solutions for people who need dependable power protection without spending a bundle. Install an M-8×2 in the top slot of your rack, and the eight outlets in the rear panel will power and protect your equipment. It’s only 3-3/4″ deep, so it fits easily even in shallow racks.
At the radio station where I dee-jay a couple of shows, the main equipment rack in the air studio has multiple CD players and a mixer, all plugged into a Furman M-8×2. The station operates 24/7 and reliable power protection is absolutely essential. That’s why they chose Furman.
When it comes to AC power, don’t learn the hard way
You’ve got a rack loaded with your processors, effects units, and more… and you’re going to plug that into the wall? Really? One big spike and your gear is toast. Don’t put your trust in wall AC, or the false security of a $5 power strip. Furman’s legendary protection circuitry defends your gear from the spikes and surges that are so common at gigs and practice spots.
As a bonus, the M-8×2 includes Furman’s effective RFI/EMI filtration, which can deliver quieter audio without the buzz and crackle that often comes along for the ride with unfiltered power sources.
