OVERVIEW

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

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

The Furman Merit M-8LX protects 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. NRTL/TUV listed.

The Furman Merit M-8LX Power Conditioner features 2 slide out, swiveling light fixtures to provide 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.

FEATURES
  • Filtration of noise from radio frequencies and electromagnetic interference
  • Standard level of surge suppression
  • 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. Its life and your sound depend on it.

        Comments about Furman Merit M-8LX Power Conditioner with Lights:

        This PC seems reliable and it has enough power for my modest home studio. I use a UPS for my iMac and this thing powers my monitors, interface and controller. I like the front outlet-it's reallly handy for a quick pluging. Dimmers are OK-nothing superb but does the job.
        I like it and I think the price is right.

          Comments about Furman Merit M-8LX Power Conditioner with Lights:

          Hey, it's a Furman product, so I expect it will last me a long time and will work exactly as advertised.
          But I'm rather disappointed with the lights that are installed. They're weak even at full power on the dimmer. Plus it'd be nice if there was a push button on/off version of the dimmer knob like the more expensive units have. It's a hassle to push in and pull out the light columns just to get them to turn on or off (though I guess I can just use the dimmer).
          Beyond that, it's a nice small unit for minimal set ups (I have mine in a 6 space rack with a mini mixer that I'm using as a personal IEM, so no major power draw).

                        Great product from a reliable brand. The lights are useful for badly lit areas. The outlet on the front is extremely useful for quick access to plug in additional gear or to charge a computer or cell phone. Nice spacing of outlets on the back.

                            Excellent, reliable product from a trusted brand. The rack lights are always helpful to have. I like the way they space out some of the outlets on the back to accommodate brick-type plugs.
