Furutech FI-50 NCF Audiophile AC Connector
Furutech FI-50 NCF
High Performance Audiophile IEC connector.
The FI-50 NCF iec connector utilizes Furutech's Pure Transmission FI-50 Piezo Ceramic series connector bodies and housings. The Piezo Ceramic series features several breakthrough construction techniques, all leading to a significant improvement in noise reduction and performance.
Multilayer Nonmagnetic Stainless Steel & Carbon Fiber Shell
A multilayer nonmagnetic stainless steel and carbon fiber shell incorporates a special damping and insulating acetal copolymer. Furutech settled on stainless and carbon fiber for the outer housing after extensive listening sessions with Japanese industry figures and audiophiles.
Nano Ceramics & Powerdered Carbon
The body of the connectors combines two active materials: Nano-sized ceramic particles and powdered carbon. (Only nano-sized ceramic particles effectively couples with carbon powder.) Nylon and fiberglass are incorporated as well forming an extremely effective, well damped, mechanically and electrically non-resonant connector body. That's correct, they're electrically damped as well. Piezoelectric effects are the key. Furutech's breakthrough in design and materials is based on employing nano-sized polycrystalline ferroelectric ceramic particles exhibiting electro-generative properties; mechanical pressure creates an electrical charge forming a bridge between electrical and mechanical oscillation. Carbon powder exhibits thermal-conductive characteristics that interact with the charged ferro-ceramic particles converting their energy into heat that's conducted away and released from the surface of the connector body!
These carefully chosen and tested active materials mechanically and electrically damp the connector and receptacle as they convert thermal, mechanical, and electrical energy for the finest Furutech Pure Transmission signal imaginable.
This is a significant leap forward in electrical connector design. We experienced a lower noise floor that yielded more information and richer tonal colors. These are the BEST AC connectors we know of.
