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.

Love this unit, especially for the price. I have a relatively modest home studio at the moment, and I was having pretty typical "studio noise" problems -- hums, buzzing, etc. I did some research in the cause of these problems, and was pretty worried that I might just have bad grounding in my house (which would be quite expensive to fix!). But, I figured before I go nuts, I'd start shielding/replacing things with a systematic approach. The first thing I did was by the M-8x2... And that was it! No more problems. I'm running my whole setup into the thing. My monitors, mac mini, all of my rack gear, my amps, etc. I haven't had a single problem since. I was sincerely worried I'd have to call an electrician out and shell out a fortune to get my electricity clean, but 70 bucks and one Furman unit later my problems are gone! It's also incredibly convenient in terms of size -- only takes up one space in my rack, and looks nice and discrete. The build quality is also top-notch on this bad boy. I have a feeling I could throw this thing out of a moving train and it'd survive (not that I plan on trying any time soon). One reviewer was complaining about RFI (radio frequency interference) with his guitar pedals -- it's worth noting that the M-8x2 probably isn't at fault here. You can "treat" your electricity all you want, but if your cables and stompboxes are cheap or unshielded, you're still going to have problems. I have a SUPER old ungrounded Bell tube amp and I've used it both at home and in a state-of-the-art studio, and that thing always buzzes/picks up radio no matter WHAT. Look at the source before you go blaming your power conditioner!
Im a Mobile DJ and I don't know about you but my equipment isn't cheap. It gives me a better piece of mind knowing I have some type of surge protection for my amps and other equipment which is basically my investment. So with constantly doing different venues, its good to know my stuff is protected.
thanks to the suggestion of one of the sales rep I decided give him a chance and Bought the unit, it was the answer of my question about noise. Great price!! great gear !! I should ask the question long time ago thanks!!!
I have a couple of pedals that for some reason get RFI (Radio Frequency Interference). When I connect my guitar to the amp I get "0" interference but when I connect the pedals I get an FM station that is rather loud a very annoying problem. This equipment states that "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" It did nothing to eliminate the radio frequency I am getting at all. I connected the pedals and the amp to the Furman M-8X2 and it did nothing to eliminate the problem. I send it back to G.C I had great expectations about this product.
I purchased this unit in January of 2010 to protect my gk fusion 550 bass head. I immediately heard the difference the moment connected my jazz bass into my rig. The old saying is "bought lesson, best taught lesson". I gig all around town, in New Orleans and the Metro area. I lost an Ampeg S V T 3pro to a power surge playing in one of the city's 5 star hotels. The power surge possibly originated from the elevators in the Hotel. If you don't want to learn my lesson. I urge you to buy this unit.
