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.

  • Good, but not great.

    As reviewed by Dylan on 1/12/2010

    I recently purchased this unit to run my BBE 482i, Rocktron Hush Super C, Pod X3 Pro as well as my Line 6 Spider Valve head. Pros: Enough power outlets and good wall-wart spacing with a convenient front-panel outlet. The lights work well enough (unless you use it to light more than 4 racks, then it needs a really dark stage). Keeps power cables neat and is built strong. Con: It doesn't eliminate things like radio frequencies and other interferences completely. I still have trouble with these issues depending on the venue/room. All in all though. If you are looking for an affordable power solution that is solidly built that will keep your expensive equipment protected from surges, this is a great little unit. If you need something that completely kills rouge radio signals and other noises, consider spending a bit more on what is an IMO, a crucial piece of gear for a rack rig.

  • Less Than Average Product

    As reviewed by Shayne on 8/3/2014

    My M-8LX made it almost a month before one of the lights went out. Even before then, the lights were still dim with the dimmer turned up all the way. I made the upgrade to a Furman PL-8C and have had no problems. The LED lights are much brighter than the conventional bulb and also produce less heat. If you need dependable, bright lights, don't settle for this model.
