About the Panamax M8-AV
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.
Power protection for all your gear
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.
Quick response prevents damage
The M8-AV reacts to a voltage spike in less than a nanosecond, breaking the connection to protect your equipment. The 8-ft. 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.
