Protect your thousands for $65
If you've been debating about whether or not to purchase this product, let me help you make your decision: Leave this review and buy it now. This was my first purchase ever from Sweetwater, and it has yet to let me down.
You've spent hundreds (or like me, thousands) on your pro-audio setup. What's better than being able to plug your expensive rack of equipment into ANY plug at ANY venue, and not have to worry about it frying, or noise, or hum??
Many times throughout the spring/summer, I am responsible for providing the music for outdoor venues on the grounds at my church. Most recently, the net worth of musical/pro-audio gear being used at one of these events was well over $4000. Unfortunately, the only place to plug in is to a rusty, junky looking outdoor outlet under a pavilion. I plugged my M-8x2 in, plugged in the rest of our gear, turned on the power, and to our surprise, absolutely no power line noise coming through the PA system, even after a sound check. Yes, you read that right, the Furman M-8x2 conditioned power from an OUTDOOR outlet so well, there was NO NOISE coming through our PA system.
Furman is truly a reputable company in the power field. Even if you don't buy this unit, please don't purchase power conditioning equipment from any other company. I've had this since 2008, and it is still going strong. Furman really out did themselves with the M-8x2. For being one of their lower-end units, you get amazing functionality, and peace of mind. Buy this NOW.
My only complaint: Don't let this unit sit in the sun. Over the years, my unit has turned a light grey from sun exposure, but hey, that's my fault.
