Panamax today announced the latest additions to its MR series of elegant, yet cost-effective power management products for home theaters: the MR430 and MR5100.

The Foundation of Power and Performance in Home Theater Systems, the Units Combine Rock-Solid Protection and Linear Noise Filtration With Sleek Designs

PETALUMA, Calif. -- Oct. 23, 2012 -- Panamax today announced the latest additions to its MR series of elegant, yet cost-effective power management products for home theaters: the MR4300 and MR5100. Offering sleek designs to complement any A/V system, the units feature exclusive Protect or Disconnect(TM) and Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM) circuitry to protect valuable components from power problems. The new models are updates to Panamax's popular "PM" Family and feature enhanced Linear Noise Filtration to maximize A/V performance as well as upgraded aesthetics.

Providing optimal A/V system performance, the units' Linear Noise Filtration eliminates common symptoms of contaminated power, including loss of detail, pops, hisses, hums, and visual artifacts. For moderately sized systems, the MR4300 offers Linear Level 3 Noise Filtration, while the MR5100 features Linear Level 4 Noise Filtration for a high level of performance even in complex noise-prone systems. Both units provide multiple isolation banks and Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) for incredible overall A/V performance. More details on Panamax's Linear Filtering Levels can be found at

The MR4300 features nine surge-protected outlets, eight on the rear panel plus a front-panel convenience outlet, while the MR5100 features 11 surge-protected outlets -- 10 on the rear panel plus a front-panel convenience outlet -- in addition to dedicated coaxial, telephone, and LAN pass-through protection ports on both units. Providing complete power protection from all varieties of power anomalies, AVM circuitry disconnects the power in unsafe conditions and automatically reconnects it when safe power returns. The MR5100 includes power sequencing of two outlet banks during start-up and shutdown, preventing damaging speaker thumps and tripped circuit breakers. For enhanced performance from audio equipment, each model is equipped with one high-current outlet bank containing four outlets.

Providing a soft yet sophisticated industrial design, the MR4300 and MR5100 feature brilliant decorative blue crescent lights accenting their white digital voltmeters and power status displays. On the MR4300, two downward-firing media lights illuminate any equipment cabinet or rack, providing users with well-lit access to their media player or system controllers in a theater, media or living room. All decorative and media lights can be dimmed or turned off completely to eliminate distractions when watching movies or TV. Equally graceful on a shelf, in a cabinet, or in a rack, the 1-RU MR4300 may be mounted with an optional rack-mount kit (sold separately) while the 2-RU MR5100 ships with the optional rack-mount kit included.

"The MR series represents professional-level technology in the most affordable family of component power management solutions ever offered by Panamax," said John Benz, director of power and accessories, Core Brands. "With their rock-solid protection and Linear Noise Filtration, the MR4300 and MR5100 truly are the foundation of power performance in any home theater system. And while other power management products are designed to live quietly behind the scenes, the MR units are ready for the spotlight, providing a sleek, modern look to complement today's A/V components."

The MR4300 and MR5100 will be available in late October 2012 at MSRPs of $299.95 and $439.95, respectively.
