Furutech GTX-D R
Audiophile AC Receptacle
Copper Blades, New Clamping Mechanism, Fantastic Transparency and Neutrality
This is one of the best AC Receptacles you can buy.
Rhodium Plated Pure Copper Contacts
Of course everyone would love to make pure-copper receptacles, but its malleability –lack of stiffness –makes pure copper a poor choice. That’s why you’ll find phosphor bronze or brass in some receptacles. Furutech’s intense engineering scrutiny has resulted in an industry-first, a technique allowing them to use special rhodium-plated a (Alpha) pure copper conductors strengthened and sprung by their innovative nonmagnetic Stainless Steel Conductor Spring System that keeps a firm grip yet won’t damage male connector blades or their plated surfaces. Even the screw-down pressure plates are curved to maximize contact area. The GTX series Audiophle AC receptacles can hold any power cord firmly in place.
The GTX-D R offers up neutrality, transparency and speed without adding grain, edginess or grit. So often plated receptacles have a sonic glare or sheen to them that makes them unlistenable after a few minutes. Not so here. We recommend the GTX-D R for tube systems, and for plugging in gear that is neutral to slightly warm in character.
