Protect it with the Furman M-8S power sequencer!

Vital power filtering removes unwanted noise from your sound

Did you know that most power sources are really noisy? The hum from fans, the buzz from fluorescent lights, even the swaying of the power lines outside your house or studio can all build up to add low-level background noise to your system. Typical power strips don't do a thing about this noise, which is why you need a Furman M-8S power conditioner. Thanks to the power filtration built into the M-8S, you'll get cleaner sound and better performance from your music gear.

Sequenced outlets protect your speakers and other valuable equipment

Most of the time, equipment damage occurs while devices are either powering up or powering down. Power sequencing allows your gear to power up in stages, which provides adequate time for each unit to stabilize before the next piece of gear powers up. It's a bit nerve-wracking when you power up your rig and you hear that dreaded "pop" sound erupt from your speakers. The sound is not only startling, it also induces a sick feeling in your stomach as you wonder - Are my speakers blown? By delaying the activation of your speakers and/or their amplifiers until the rest of your rig has powered up, you can eradicate speaker pop.

Reliable Furman quality gives you power you can count on

Another reason to go with a Furman M-8S power conditioner is plain and simple reliability. Most power strips wear out in a few years, but before they go, they deliver more and more erratic power. Cheap components can cause serious fluctuations even in new power strips. The scary thing is that you normally can't detect the results of bad power at first, but your gear can. At Sweetwater, we've seen how bad power can burn out transformers, reformat hard drives, and reek all sorts of havoc on your rig. Play it safe, add a Furman M-8S power sequencer to your rig today.

Furman M-8S Power Sequencer Features:
  • Standard level AC protection and filtering provides your gear with clean and reliable power
  • 6 sequenced rear panel outlets protect your speakers and other valuable equipment
  • Offers up to 15 amps of power, allowing you to run entire basic studio and live rigs
  • Front-mounted indicators assures you that your gear is being properly protected
  • Robust all-metal chassis can easily withstand the wear of mobile use
Keep your gear safe and sounding great with the Furman M-8S power sequencer!

Must have!

I bought this to sequence my rack so that I could avoid speaker pops, and it has worked flawlessly for that purpose. As an unexpected bonus, I had a very explosive power surge (literally, my son's WII console blew apart and bits flew all over) that fried straight through my power strip, went through two online UPSs that do not have the clamping time for that type of surge, and fried a few computers. The only things on that circuit that survived without a trace of damage were ones connected to the sequencer. The only reason for a 4 star rating is because I am sure there are better units out there if you're willing to spend, but for what it cost, it's a no-brainer.
