OVERVIEW

Safe and stable voltage for optimum performance at an affordable price.

The Furman Merit Series M-8DX Power Conditioner is the perfect low-cost AC power solution for any rackmount audio system. The M8-DX has eight switched AC outlets in the rear panel power to protect all your equipment from power surges with up to a 15-amp load.

The M-8DX power conditioner protects your audio 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. NRTL/TUV listed.

Featuring two slide-out, swiveling light fixtures, The Furman M-8DX Conditioner provides discreet illumination of your equipment on stages,
in studios, and in other dark places. A dimmer knob lets you adjust the lamp brightness to just the right level. It also features a digital LED voltmeter to display incoming line voltages.

FEATURES
  • Filtration of noise from radio frequencies and electromagnetic interference
  • Standard level of surge suppression
  • Digital LED voltmeter to display incoming line voltage
  • Dual pullout rack lights with dimmer control
  • 8 rear panel outlets
  • Sturdy one rack space design

Make sure that your gear operates at optimal voltage. It's life and your sound depends on it.

The Furman M-D8X is sturdy, works as advertised, and looks good in my rack. The digit voltmeter display looks cool and gives me confidence that my power is stable. The lights are a nice feature when I work with the overhead lights on low or off. Ultimately it is a great piece of equipment to protect the gear in my rack. Who figured a power conditioner could look so nice?

I purchased this unit because of the high ratings. I wasnt expecting much, but i have noticed this unit consistently displays a lower current than my other power conditioner. The good thing is i dont hear any hum through my 3 pairs of speaker monitors! One last disapointment is this unit doesnt shut off in stages. I would expect all of these units had such feature built in. Oh well.

    Comments about Furman M-8DX Power Conditioner with Lights and Meter:

    I bought this to protect my favorite bass amp. This is my second unit that I have purchased. Plenty of plugs including "wall wart" plugs in the rear. Having the additional plug on the front is super handy for lots of uses (charging your phone at band practice?) The readouts are easy to see and the controls are super simple. honestly too, pull out lights are a really slick feature. Functionally useful and look really cool. Dimmable and retractable if you don't need them at all. Anyways I think it's a critical piece of equipment if you love your gear. At the end of the day it's basically a really slick looking power strip.. Reliable, durable, cool looking and a decent price.

            I already had the ipr2 5000. The 2000 compliments it well in my equipment rack. It works great and has plenty power for the stage!

                  I love that I can put my furman in my rack and plug in all my gear and have it somewhat regulated as far as power goes. I guess I think of the furman as an overpriced power strip, but it's definitely convenient with 9 outlets and works well in a live music setting with multiple rack-mount items.
