AC Infinity Aircom Series T8 and T9 Component Cooling Fans Hands-On

Fancy fans provide easy solution to air circulation problems. This is a good thing because sometimes space can be tight and gear can run hot. Now, when I was asked to check out the AC Infinity Aircom Series, I was not sure what to expect quality-wise. With a price point of $99, they are neither cheap (in fan terms) nor expensive (in home theater gear terms).

Upon unpacking the T8 and T9, it became clear that these are industrial-grade cooling machines that are highly customizable. If you need hard core cooling, they can spin up and make some air move. But if all you need is continuous, near silent ventilation then they can ramp the fans down and effectively operate on cruise control. It's all programmable through the fan's LED front panel, which also provides real-time temperature updates.

So anyhow, fans. There's not too much more to say. I tried 'em for a few months and so far they do what they say they do. If the price seems right, I recommend them. If the price seems high, I'm sure there are other options. To my sensibility, you get a good, solid, silent, flexible , useful product for the money. More info about the top-venting T9 here and the rear-venting T8 here.

I just bought mine like a week or two ago an simply love it(T8). I have never ever felt my receiver get warm again, it's always cool now. I even used a 20% off coupon code I saw here on the side of the forums AVS17X, and made the buy even better!!! It also stops the dust from easily getting in the receivers top slits, since the unit sits on top of it. My old pioneer was so full of dust when I looked inside since I didn't have one of these before. The packaging and presentation is very nice too as you know you are buying a top notch product that actually works and does what it claims to do. I too highly recommend it if you have a receiver you want to keep cool!!!

Yes, these are excellent - build quality and features for the price is hard to beat. Good/Friendly customer service too. The fans do start to become audible at speed setting 3 and above, and you might hear them in more silent parts of a movie, but otherwise not bad. This unit is capable of moving a lot of air. The T8 is great if you need to stuff it in a tight space with no vertical clearance thanks to the low profile and since the fans pull from the bottom and blow out the back of the unit instead of the top! Great form factor all around, and you can kill the display completely to keep it dark in your theater setting.

This was the perfect solution I've been looking for! Rather that cut out a section of my new entertainment center I can drop one of these on top of my AVR! And with the coupon code provided I was able to get the T8 shipped for $91! Thanks!

Make sure you enter it in the coupon code box to the right before submitting your order. I nearly missed it.

I don't have due to my cabinet. However, I did purchase their standalone vent fans with the cooling monitor. Love the product.

Fundamentally, yes, although the top venting T9 units can move a little bit more air and is a little bit quieter. But yeah, features are the same, and running on low they are both effectively silent.

Thank you very much I will be ordering the T9 right now.

@imagic you should be getting some kickback for all the sales AC Infinity will be receiving after your mini review.

Your review mirrors my experiences with the T8's in my setup. I love them. I can say that they can get loud. I never thought about just setting them to low and running them all the time. I have mine setup to automatically fire up once a certain temperature is reached and it will cool it down FAST. Drawback is the fans do come on fast and loud. I personally recommend them to anyone. I'm cooling a Marantz 8802a and 8077 amp with my two T8's in a Salamander cabinet with closed doors.

Glad they work well, I first saw the ads a couple of weeks ago. It's interesting idea, a fan system that works and looks like a component that actually belongs in your rack.

I have a T8 for my Denon x4300h which was running very hot in a less than ideally ventilated/mostly enclosed cabinet. I drilled several holes in the back of my media console and pushed the T8 flush to them so air is vented directly out the back. In my room any fan setting above 1 is audible which is the one complaint I have. Level 2 is tolerable and only noticeable during very quiet scenes/breaks in music but 3 or above I find too loud. Max speed (6) is sorta ridiculous in terms of how loud it is for AV equipment. Otherwise it works well. For most of my listening habits it can keep temp under 96 at lowest fan speed using auto setting with X4300h in auto eco mode.

Funny my T8 just arrived today and I have two more showing up tomorrow. How are you guys running yours? My marantz 8802a gets really hot as well as my two Rotel amps. How can Do you set up so it is a set it and leave it senario? Is runninng on low all the time best then just turn it off when you shut down? I used the 20% off coupon twice. Just checked my 8802a and it is not hot, these days hugs work.

Thanks

Dave

Same here! I prob could have maybe been able to use the T9, but i like how the T8 covers the top completely, as if it was open up top like the T9, dust gets in so easily.
I think anyone who uses one of these, obviously has a surround sound system most likely. And the noise you get from the fans, isnt that bad since the speaker sound over takes it by far. My ceiling fans are on 24/7 too, so i really def, never hear the T8 Fans.

The T8 is a great product that fits perfectly over the top of the Denon X4200. The X4200 used to get quite warm to the touch, but now all is well. Setting to a preset temperature, this T8 is a receiver saver, Once in a while I hear it kick on when moostly dialogue from the center, but that is not very often. I know there are other options, buts this is just about perfect with the measurements of the X4200. Well worth the price x10! AC Infinity struck gold with these.

I bought two of these about 6 months ago, they've worked flawlessly ever since. I have 2 T9's set for a max speed of 3/4 speed to keep the sound down during soft dialog moments and they are able to keep my prepro and amp nice and cool in a Salamander quad unit... I highly recommend!

I've owned the AC Infinity T9 for a few months, with my Marantz SR7011 and it performs very well, maintaining temperatures at or below 95F, in smart mode. I highly recommend this product or the T8 depending on your requirements.

Peace and blessings,

Glad to see this review. Been using their products for quite a while. (You may notice at the very top of rack a dual fan. It never goes on as the Infinity units do their job very well.

Please excuse dust in last pic. Although brand new Marantz and Emotiva, it's in my old living room and since building the media room this past year with the rack you see pictured, no one goes in the LR any longer. Shame, really, as there's a 75" Samsung there.





Apologies for the sloppy white conduit going up to the 86" LG. When building the room, I ran a thick Blue Jeans HDMI cord through wall but it somehow got damaged when the foam insulation was shot in. I didn't know about running a hard conduit for it at the time. That white vertical one will be painted color of the wall (eventually) and hung straight.

T-8 or T9 owners

Just received then T9, installed and seems to be working pretty good.

Question


This seems strange. I think the temperature probe is a little off.
The receiver has not been on, the temperature gage that I have in the cabinet is registering 81.9 degrees where as the T9 jumps between 88 and 89 degrees and the fans are on.

Any thoughts?

Tomorrow, I'll turn off my AVR and see what T9 reports versus my digital thermometer. If I forget to post that, you have permission to remind me to do it. I ain't shuttin' down the party tonight.

Quite serendipitous post here on the front page of AVSForum. I hopped onto the site to research the low volume of my Yamaha RX-A2050 after some use at moderate volumes (-30, -28). I've known for some time that my cabinet doesn't have quite enough head room and heat could be an issue. Nothing in the manual I can find about attenuation as temperature rises.

Anyway I was going to look at cabinet cooling options but this looks like a no-brainer at $99 -- with all the positive reviews here how can I go wrong?

Question: how are you measuring the temperature of your equipment? Just by touch?

I get precise with my measurements. IR thermometer is cheap enough on Amazon.
