New affordable Panamax power solutions for home theater
Panamax, Inc. today announced the release of four new power products optimized for home theater systems. The PM8-HT, M8-HT, M8-HT-PRO, and M10-HT-PRO offer increased levels of filtering and advanced noise-reducing technologies for improved audio and video quality, while patent-pending circuitry protects components from power irregularities.
Designed to work with high-definition (HD) systems, these new products offer power cleaning and filtration to eliminate common symptoms of AC line noise, including loss of detail, pops, hisses, hums, and visual artifacts, and allow equipment to perform at its full capability for an optimal home theater experience.*
The M8-HT-PRO and M10-HT-PRO offer premium filtration for increased audio and video clarity, in addition to noise isolation between their isolated outlet banks, which prevents any noise created by a component plugged into one bank from contaminating the power to equipment plugged into the other outlet bank.
The M10-HT-PRO also offers Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT), which suppresses noise dramatically and consistently across the entire dynamic range for stunning audio and video quality. This product features six linear filtration outlets, three of which provide sequenced activation. The M10-HT-PRO also offers four digital ultrasonic-noise-filtered outlets, while three isolated outlet banks provide further protection against AC noise.
All of the new products feature Panamax's exclusive Protect or Disconnect™ circuitry, which completely disconnects AC power to connected equipment in the event of a catastrophic surge, while integrated coax/sat and telephone/LAN line protection prevents electrical surges that travel over cable, satellite and antenna lines.*
For the protection and longevity of home theater components, the M8-HT, M8-HT-PRO, and M10-HT-PRO feature Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM), a patent-pending technology that monitors the incoming AC power and, in the event of an unsafe voltage, disconnects power to connected components. Once the voltage returns to safe levels, power is restored to the connected equipment.
Additionally, the M8-HT-PRO and M10-HT-PRO offer a 12-volt trigger that allows source equipment to activate or deactivate four delayed outlets for high-current equipment such as power amplifiers and subwoofers.
"The new floor model line offers a wide range of technologies that enable our customers to receive the best possible performance from their home theater equipment and, at the same time, ensure component longevity," said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Panamax and Furman. "Continuing our tradition of innovation, the advanced filtering technologies and patent-pending circuitry of these solutions set them apart from any other products on the market."
The M8-HT-PRO and M10-HT-PRO will be available in September 2007 at MSRPs of $149.95 and $199.95, respectively. The PM8-HT and M8-HT will be available in October 2007 at the MSRPs of $79.95 and 99.95, respectively.
