About the Panamax PM8-AV
The Panamax PM8-AV shields your home theater system against harmful spikes and power fluctuations. It also filters out the RF (radio frequency) and electromagnetic interference that can degrade your system's performance.
The power protector comes with eight AC outlets, conveniently spaced to allow for bulky transformers. Two sets of coaxial input/output jacks protect your cable, antenna, or digital satellite TV connections. There's also a protected telephone line input/output.
The PM8-AV reacts in less than a nanosecond during a spike, breaking the connection to protect your equipment. The 6-ft. power cord has a right-angle plug that hugs the wall, for an easy fit behind your audio/video cabinet.
