Furman M-8Dx Power Conditional

I bought a PL-8 back in the day that has served me well for years. I recently added another rack to my studio space and needed an additional power strip so I ordered today's equivalent of the PL-8 which is the M-8Dx.

I gotta say, it gets the job done but it's a sad unit compared to the PL-8. The light dimmer knob should read "dim" or "dimmest" because the bulbs produce a dark yellow light and you cannot run them independently of the "on" switch, as you could with earlier units.

The light tubes also feel much flimsier than the ones on its predecessor. Overall, the quality of Furman power conditioners seems to be going down hill.

I'd look somewhere else if I were you.
