OVERVIEW

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

Like its Merit series predecessor, the Furman M-8x, the Furman M-8x2 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-8x2 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-8x2 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-8x2 power conditioner is NRTL/TUV listed.

FEATURES
  • Filtration of noise from radio frequencies and electromagnetic interference
  • Standard level of surge suppression
  • 8 rear panel outlets
  • Sturdy one rack space design

Make sure that your music gear operates at optimal voltage. Its life and your sound depend on it.

    The new Furman conditioners now have one front-panel outlet, which is most helpful in home studio use when you want to try something out without having to climb behind your console to make a permanent connection. They have a very short chassis so access to other devices in your rack is not hampered. They last a very long time, are reasonably priced, so that is why I give them highest marks for overall value.
    Recently added the Furman M-8X2 to my home studio where it does duty with a ten year old Furman conditioner once used in an amp rack. As my stack of studio components & devices grew I needed more power outlets. Most reviews of music related devices & instruments speak about the sound of a device. In the case of Furman conditioners, the lack of sound is the key. Less IS more. Most homes are plagued with flourescent lights, air conditioner motors, appliance motors, etc. that can really dirty up the electrical power to your sensitive recording devices. WiFi devices generate RFI as well as nearby cell towers. With the two Furman power conditioners, my recordings are absolutely free of any power-related noises. When I listen to recordings others have done in their home studios, I often hear these types of electric power induced noise, but not in my recordings.
    While Furman makes very high priced devices, my two low-cost conditioners work flawleesly, and one has done so for ten years. Now that's quality & value.

    If you are fine with hearing some buzzing through the speakers, then this is a good value. Otherwise, I am not impressed. I installed it and right away I could notice each and every thing I turned on that was connected to it. When I talked the the rep about having it returned, he was like, "It's just meant for speakers.." Why would it have 9 outlets then?

    Anyway. Not impressed. I guess that's what I get for not paying for the higher quality gear. Everything else Furman I have ever used has been great.

        Comments about Furman M-8X2 Power Conditioner:

        I bought this because of the wiring in my house not being the best. It cleaned up my signal and actually improved my tone. Adds a bit of clarity to the highs and just smooths everything out. Everyone should own one of these, whether or not you have a rack setup.

          Cost effective power conditioning in building with ancient wiring. Reduces RF interference and 60 cycle hum considerably. Wall wart spacing for three receptacles on rear panel is good design feature for home recording studios

            Comments about Furman M-8X2 Power Conditioner:

            Bought this power conditioner to try and reduce some noise in my rig. Unfortunately it was quite ineffective at noise reduction. Although I do believe it had a positive effect on my tone, it sounds more balanced, less harsh. I do like the on off switch, that is especially effective at home for my pedal board. Surge Protection is a plus.

                  Ordered the very basic Furman M8x2 Power Conditioner on Wednesday and on Friday was plugging it in. A very good unit to power a rack that does not require the lighting of the more expensive unit. Reliable and does what it's supposed to. Great unit!

                          This power conditioner did exactly what it was supposed to, eliminated annoying hum from a tube guitar amp. Have all amps and a mixer plugged into it for band practice. Will purchase another for live rig I am setting up.

                                I've been playing for 40 years, so I've come across just about every power problem there is while on the road and in the studio. This device will take dirty, fluctuating power (very common at bars and clubs), and provide consistent, power which will protect your valuable gear. I will never again plug into house ac without having my Furman as a buffer to my amps, pedals and P.A. When you go into a recording studio, make sure all their gear is filtered with a Furman or other like product. It makes a huge difference in your sound!!
