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.

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

      this item will save your gear when your on the road. I've have one for years & it finally shot craps. my old one was the "old style" it did not have the "reset button" on it. this updated one does. great for those spikes. The lite are a must when on stage and the meter is cool to watch.
      if your wondering why not a 5 ... nothing is perfect in life so 4 is the best I can do

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

      This is my second Furman Power Conditioner as I also have a Power Factor Pro for my guitar amps, keyboard and effects.
      So far, several years have gone by and it still works flawlessly.
      Furman products insure that the electrical supply for all of your gear is smooth, quiet, and SAFE.
      This product is used in my stage PA rack that houses the power amps.
      I trust it and would not dare plug in those amps without this Furman unit.
      To be safe though, always check the venue's electrical outlets before you plug in anything to make sure they are wired properly.
      Always take the preventive approach and you'll save thousands in repairs.

              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?

              Does the Job

              By Steven Puckitt

              from Houston, TX

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

              Does the job and solid as it gets.
              It's got lights, a voltmeter and plenty of plugs. All seems to work as intended.
              Feels sturdy. All metal chassis, metal knobs for the lights and the switch feels solid.
              I got a good deal on it otherwise I probably would have just gone for one of the cheaper models made by Furman. If you are looking to spend the money though it is worth it.

              Great Product

              By Steven Puckitt

              from Houston, TX

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

              Products is great and works great, but if you can't find a good deal on it getting one of Furmans cheaper models would also do you just fine.
              Has a volt meter, lights and plenty of places to plug things in.
              My first one came in broken so they shipped me out a new one right away so A+ for Musician's Friend. The volt meter works, the lights work and it is giving my gear power so quality is fine. It feels sturdy and strong with its metal chassis.
              I got it for a great value, but if you don't need the volt-meter you could probably do just fine with one of their cheaper models. There is some truth in the fact that a power conditioner is just an overglorified power strip...
