Already owning the S1, S2 and S£ multifans from AC Infinity which I got last year to cool down my Tag Mclaren AV processor and amps as well as my PS3 not before I had messaged AC Infinity through here on Amazon and then directly on their website I had a very helpful nice chap called Tommy who answered a lot of my in depth comms asking all the questions under the sun and every time he would reply in great depth explainign things and also doing this in an timely manner also which always impressed me then see they released towards end of last year the new Aircom series and the T8 & T9 took my interest but had plenty more questions to ask Tommy relating to these new units and how they would perform in my current rack set up and once again was impressed with the patience and in depth replys I had to my questions but my only sticking point was ordering from them in USA as these were not available to Amazon UK customers and as I needed three units (1x T8 & 2 X T9 Aircoms) I never quite pulled the trigger with postage cost and shipping distance but low and behold I check periodically on Amazon Uk every now and again in hope they are stocking them and could not beleive they finally was making the Aircom series availabel to UK customers although at time of writing only one seems to not be available in UK is the T8 Aircom but hoping that changes.
So I ordered a T9 model to try finally and firstly can confirm it does come with a UK 3 pin plug (thankyou AC infinity there just for common sense and not kopping out with EU adaptor plug type affairs in the box) and is fairly quick and easy to get running as only has the power output and two USB outputs on the back to daisy chain any other AC mulitfans upto 6 additional multifans.
Have to say the T9 is one of those products that is nailed on in every way from design to function and features cannot fault this unit and was worth the extra years wait for this to finally be available on Amazon UK.
So far I just have it on auto and is far more effecient and quiter than when I was just using two multifans on my processor and is only having to use the 1st low fan speed setting to keep my very hot dual processor at a constant 25C. It has only kicked in the alarm so far when I turn it on it has detected it above the 35C alarm temp I have and immdeidatly the fans kick in full blast for around a minute or so to get it under the 35C alarm I set until it is 2C under that marker then went to lowest fan speed and within several minutes was keeping it at a constant 25C. With features like the smart mode and alarm setting and a lock key to stop it been accidentally adjusted especially if you have kids wandering hands and display brightness levels or just off this unit is worth the money wait for it to come to the UK.
From this I am definitaly getting another one of the T9's soon for my other power amps then just need AC Infinity to stock the T8 rear blower version for my processor as the cleareance is less than my amps.
It is a refreshing change as not to often I come across a company that way before I even purchased any of their products would answer all my questions in depth on many occasions then from the S range of multifans I have to now this Aircom T9 model know they are well thought out and well designed products that actually excel at what they are made for and look forward to getting more Aircoms to keep all my AV equaimpment three to four times cooler than without them helping prolonging the life of my gear also.
A lot noisier than expected, even slowest speed clearly audible during Quiet periods of music spoiling the dynamic range - it's a bit like listening to early tape cassette players where background hiss limited enjoyment - but with loud film soundtracks capable of masking the fan noise it's not really noticeable - that is until the fans stop running when you can't help but feel that a weight has been lifted from your ears.
I have not experimented with other fans but I can't help feeling that one large slow fan could shift just as much air as the three small but faster fans fitted into the Cooler, but with less noise - after all you don't notice your record turntable making a noise when running - do you ?
Item arrived fast and well packaged from Amazon The instructions are clear and its easy to sent up Once working it does a really good job of cooling my Denon AV amp,even when running at high volumes and it is in a enclosed space overall a great product
