The Panamax M8-AV provides protection for your audio/video components, including cable or digital satellite TV systems. This power conditioner shields against harmful spikes and fluctuations in your home's AC power, and filters out the RF (radio frequency) and electromagnetic interference that can degrade your system's performance.
The M8-AV features eight fully protected AC outlets, conveniently spaced to allow for bulky transformers. You get two sets of protected coaxial input/output jacks for cable, antenna, or digital satellite TV connections. The M8-AV also has one set of in/out jacks to protect your telephone connections.
The M8-AV reacts to a voltage spike in less than a nanosecond, breaking the connection to protect your equipment. The six-foot power cord has a right-angle plug that hugs the wall, for an easy fit behind a chair or sofa. You can also mount this conditioner on your wall for out-of-the-way placement.

Pros: got quickly
This unit accomplishes what it is designed to do.
Pros: Reliable as this is the second unit I own with two more on the way.
A great product at a fair price, overall a really great value.
Pros: Easy to use, can hang on wall to save precious floor space.
My new embroidery machine required a surge protector with a step up/step down transformer. This unit will protect against line surges and low voltage. Crutchfield Representative was very helpful, and the price was good. Many sewing/embroidery machines are now computerized and the cost can be substantial. The Panamax was the only protector that fit my needs. I also checked with APC and they do not have a unit like this available.
Pros: Protection against line surges and low voltage. Easy installation. Relatively small footprint, fits on top of my sewing table. Easy access to connections.
This unit works and has protected equipment in my house for some time. I have two units and so far none of my equipment has been hit by lightening
Pros: Easy to set up and the unit has plenty of outlets
Got my old stereo plugged in to this and i get better radio reception. It's magic!
Pros: price, piece of mind, and radio reception
Cons: not a one
So far so good. I have owned several Panamax products over the years and not been disappointed. So far, this product is no exception.
Pros: Size and functionality. Appealing looks.
Everything works as advertised. It hasn't had a serious "test" yet . Thats why 4 stars.
Pros: Well made, as far as I can see.
Cons: None yet
Worked for a day, and then none of the unit's outlets would power anything despite the green indicator lights showing that supposedly all was fine. Must be a defective unit. I am going to try a replacement as the features on this unit are great (if it works).
