TRPTK recording studio tests NCF

Recording studio trptk.com tests NCF – Netherlands July 2017

(TRPTK was founded in 2014 by audio engineer Brendon Heinst and music producer Luuk Meijssen, as a movement against the degradation of sound quality and emotional impact of recordings. The only reason why music still exists as an art form, is because there are artists out there who want to keep telling their stories, regardless of what it will take to do so. They just want to be heard! And we want to be there to pass their message through)

TRPTK did three recordings with test power cords powering the Sonodore power supply and preamplifier, one test with Furutech’s Empire cable, one test with a cable fitted with Furutech’s FI-50 NCF and FI-E50 NCF connectors, and then one with a regular generic power cord. The recordings of a piece called Luminous by composer Maurizio Bignone played by cellist Maya Fridmanthe cello was chosen as it is such an extremely rich and broad-band sound

The signal path was:
- Sonodore RCM-402 60V active powered microphone
- Mogami 2534 Quad Neglex microphone cable
- Sonodore MPA-502 60V power supply and preamplifier (powered with either Empire, NanoFlux NCF, or generic cable, through the NCF test box’s normal or NCF output)
- Furutech FA-aS21 interlinks (12m)
- Merging HAPI at 352.8 kHz with Premium Input Modules
- Digital Audio Workstation with Pyramix 11

All cabling, both power and audio, were by Furutech.
In my personal opinion, there is no other choice for cabling if you’re only happy with the absolute best.
Being very finicky about my sound, there’s only one cable manufacturer I fully trust.

Furutech introduces new Ag-16 Silver-plated α (Alpha) OCC Phono Cable

Ag-16

Ag-16 Silver-plated α (Alpha) OCC Phono Cable

Phono cartridge output is vanishingly small and easily polluted by RFI and EMI. Every element of signal transfer must be perfectly engineered to avoid distortion that robs music of life. If you’re going to the trouble of playing vinyl why swamp the low-level signal in a veritable soup of noisy distortion right at its source!

All enthusiasts are looking for the same qualities: Verisimilitude to the original event, a sense of engagement promoting suspension of disbelief, an immersion in audio and video experience. To engage without effort requires meticulous preparation of the entire playback chain especially including cables and most importantly at the signal source.

The Ag-16 Phono Cable achieves its remarkably quiet soundstage and transparent presentation with silver-plated α OCC conductors, three-layer shielding and external ground wire, even a specially engineered cable clamp to improve grip and avoid any potential distortion.

1.1 meter phono cable available in three versions:

Ag-16 (straight DIN)
Ag-16-L (angled DIN)
Ag-16-R4 (RCA connectors)
Ag-16-XLR (DIN to XLR connectors) – by custom order

New 105-D NCF receives the Audio Accessory Meikisho 2017 Special Award

Neo Damper Outlet Cover 105-D NCF is Furutech’s “Top of the line” Receptacle Cover. After a multitude of tests involving the best in damping materials, Furutech brings you its masterpiece. This combination of carbon and NCF and Neo Damper will be the final touch to your complete AC chain.

105-D_NCFアクセサリー銘機賞2017特別賞ロゴ

Audio Accessory Meikisho 2017 Judge –Mr. Masamitsu Fukuda comments:

Even with development and application of high-performance AC outlets, it is often the case that the user is not experiencing the true worth of the AC outlet due to poor quality and performance of the outlet cover used with such high-performance AC outlets.

Materials used in the development of outlet covers have always been the major sales point and the task of finding new materials that are conducive to improved sound performance has been a difficult one.

Then Furutech developed an outlet cover formed of Neo Damper and NCF carbon fiber.

Reaching a level of performance not seen until now, this nonmagnetic, nonmetallic outlet cover has won high praise and is a worthy recipient of the Meikisho Audio Accessory Award’s Special Award.

 

Onegen Publishing’s Audio Accessory Editor – Mr. Katsunori Isayama comments:

Last year we saw the introduction of the GTX-D NCF(R) AC outlet as the first product in the NCF series lineup. Of course, there is the appeal of this NCF material, however I think it was really the synergistic effect of Furutech’s accumulated technical development prowess.

This year again, two years running, Furutech receives the Special Award, for their new Neo Damper outlet cover 105-D NCF. With this concept outlet cover plate, I hope for many audiophiles to easily experience the effectiveness of NCF and Furutech’s advanced technical expertise.

The Empire & The Astoria Pro Audio Cables

The_Astoria The_Empier

Furutech Astoria and Empire power cords

If you’re a musician or a recording professional, ask yourself the following question: Do your current power cords make sense?

They might make sense to your budget or in the context of your recording and playback equipment, but are they making sense to your brain? Does the music you create in the studio sound like the music in your head, natural and inviting and emotional? Or do you listen to your music with an imaginary clipboard in your lap, checking off what’s right about the sound you’re getting—and what isn’t so right?

The new Furutech Astoria and Empire power cords were designed for demanding professionals just like you. Developed in Tokyo with extensive feedback from musicians and recording professionals, the Astoria and Empire power cords have been specifically tuned and balanced to deliver greater punch and dynamics to your sound—more of what you’re hearing in your head and in your heart.

In fact, choosing between the Astoria and the Empire provides you with even greater control over the type of sound you’re trying to achieve. Pick the Astoria if you’re aiming for quick response and natural speed, mated with deep and powerful bass. The Empire, on the other hand, offers a well-balanced sound with incredible resolution so that you hear every detail and nuance. It’s up to you.

Just replace the existing power cords for your amplifiers, mixing consoles, microphone preamps and even your entire recording and playback system, and you’ll immediately hear more top-to-bottom coherence in the sound. Dynamic range will be greater than ever before, and the music will sound effortless and expansive instead of congested, edgy or muddy.

Your music will start to make more sense where it counts—in your brain.

The legendary design team at Furutech are experts when it comes to preserving the signal path and delivering an end result that’s accurate, honest and uncompromised. Our innovative (Alpha) PC-Triple C power cable, used in both the Astoria and the Empire, is the result of a proprietary forging process that involved repeated rounds of metal folding—the same method used to create the katana, the sword used by Samurai warriors!

We’ve taken that art of sword-making to new levels, however, by applying variable high pressures to high-purity oxygen-free copper. This creates a forging process that is identical to folding the steel of a katana tens of thousands of times. This ensures that the crystal grain boundaries deep inside the copper are rearranged so that electrical current travels through the signal path more smoothly than ever before.

Add our renowned gold-plated connectors, our noise-reducing (Alpha) conductor shielding, our vibration-controlling RoHS-compliant flexible PVC sheath and our patented Floating Field Damper grounding system and you’ll have a razor-sharp tool for extracting the finest results– both in the studio and on the stage.

Use Furutech’s Astoria and Empire power cords for all your recording and playback needs and the end result will not be subtle

Furutech introduces the NanoFlux Speaker Cable

NanoFlux_Speaker_Cable

Top-of-the-Line Furutech NanoFlux Speaker Cable

Furutech Alpha Nano-Au-Ag OCC is one of the best conductors Furutech engineers have found for sound reproduction.

The new technology used in the highly specialized manufacturing process of this ultra-high performance power cable combines Furutech’s world renowned Alpha- OCC conductors with Furutech’s extremely effective signal transmission enhancer, Nano Liquid, to create Nano-Au-Ag conductors. Nano Liquid’s molecules are so tiny (8 nano-meters in diameter (8/1000000mm) they cover the Alpha-OCC surface and “fill up” any concave-convex sections left on the conductor surface during the production process, increasing the electric conduction area and debasing impedance. The very precise mix of gold and silver super-micro particles and amount of dispersing Squalene oil used on the conductor has great influence on the sound reproduction, and Furutech’s engineers settled on their exact ratio of gold to silver particles after careful audition of countless test samples. The resulting “tuned” cable offers superb overall balance of qualities that Furutech is known for that allows you to feel experience and communicate with music. The results are extremely fine resolution down and through the very low noise floor, improved sound staging and image palpability, a musical, attractive, “round” midrange, tight and controlled bass, plus power and dynamics to spare to set your music on fire!

New Power Guard Series

Power Guard-48Power Gurad-15

AC Power Can Make or Break Your System!

The audio you hear from your home entertainment system is essentially the incoming electricity itself, and the typically violent storms riding the AC line and its ground is very detrimental to the performance of your components.

 The Power Guard-15 and Power Guard-48 are sophisticatedfinished inline power filtering cable that eliminates many common problems caused by contaminated electrical power lines. It protects against distortion caused by ground noise, voltage spikes and sags, high frequency power supply noise from other components in your own system, and finally high-frequency digital noise emanating from processors and digital interconnects.

 Plus you’re never alone when you take your listening seat; the residential AC supply is shared with other apartments, homes, and businesses on the same utility transformer explaining why many enthusiasts find their systems perform to a higher standard late at night and over weekends.

 And while the Power Guard-15 and Power Guard-48 are star performers at eliminating common AC problems, it does it all without restricting current draw in any way. Furutech, known for its world-class Pure Transmission engineering, build and finish, have done the tests and the Power Guard-15 and Power Guard-48 do not interfere with current draw. The Furutech FI-15M Plus(R) Aand FI-48M(R) Cconnectors perfectly complements Furutech’s NEW – (Alpha) PC-Triple C Power cable which utilizes an ingenious proprietary forging process where variable high pressures are applied to high-purity oxygen-free copper tens of thousands of times, ultimately transforming the copper’s crystal grain boundaries that were formerly in a vertical direction into a longitudinal orientation to allow the signal to flow more easily down the manufactured cable. The copper’s crystals become much more well-connected and uniform, both physically and electrically, creating a much more highly conductive and sonically compelling conductor.

 The Power Guard-15 and Power Guard-48 Inline AC Filters lower noise on every component on which it’s used resulting in very natural and extremely fine resolution down and through the utterly silent noise floor. It improves soundstaging and imaging while creating nuanced high frequencies, an attractive, engaging midrange, tight and controlled bass, with power and dynamics to spare.

1757_FP-TCS21 1756_FP-S35TC

 

Alpha Pure Copper-Continuous Crystal Construction
Furutech’s α (Alpha) PC-Triple C is one of a select few of conductors that Furutech engineers have found to excel in sound reproduction. α (Alpha) PC-Triple C is made with Furukawa high-purity oxygen-free copper using a special forging process. Unlike regular OFC (oxygen-free copper), almost all of the impurities of this high-purity OFC have been removed at the micron level through a special casting process unique to Furukawa.
Purposely designed and developed for audio signal conductors, α (Alpha) PC-Triple C is flexible, strong and can be drawn into a very fine wire. This new conductor, while not single-crystal like PCOCC, features crystal grain boundaries that are almost totally free of impurities which allows even the smallest of signals to be transmitted. While PCOCC is a single-crystal conductor, it is susceptible to imperfections during production. Since α (Alpha) PC-Triple C employs a fixed angle continuous transport forging process, pressure is applied to the high-purity oxygen-free copper tens of thousands times. This ensures that any crystal grain boundaries that were present in a vertical direction become longitudinal, and the crystals become connected and uniform in their direction. This process also helps to remove the imperfections that are often found in PCOCC, which create a more conductive and acoustic conductor.
The resulting conductor has an extremely fine resolution down and through the very low noise floor, improved sound staging and image palpability, a musical, attractive, “round” midrange, tight and controlled bass, plus power and dynamics to spare to set your music on fire!

The new fresh-looking FI-15 Plus series features a new plating technique which delivers sonic improvements with a more durable finish and newly designed body for firm cable grip and resonance control.

Furutech One piece Wound-Wire conductor Binding Posts FT-860 series

Furutech’s revolutionary, patented FT-860 Series One-Piece Wire-Wound Binding Posts are ideal for speaker builders, manufacturers and do-it-yourselfers looking for low-mass, quality engineered and superb-sounding terminals. The FT-860 Series is a first in speaker terminal design: The reduced metal mass of the binding post terminal pole piece lowers impedance values improving the sound even more. It’s easy enough to follow a trend like low-mass binding posts — less is more — but Furutech engineers weren’t satisfied with merely cutting away material and moving “new” and “improved” out the door. It has to work impeccably and sound glorious. Only Furutech has the expertise of materials, engineering horsepower and advanced processing to create products like the FT-860 Series with its innovative one-piece wire-wound conductor.

New FI-15 Plus series released

Furutech celebrate their 25th anniversary with the introduction of an updated and improved version of their very first power connectors, the FI-15E series. The new fresh-looking FI-15 Plus series features a new plating technique which delivers sonic improvements with a more durable finish and newly designed body for firm cable grip and resonance control.

PURE POWER 6 NCF

-Reviews-

Audio Rebels (Poland)

 

Test

Pure Power 6 NCF has been designed based on the theory that the role of a power distribution unit, besides distribution of power, should be the absorption/elimination of high-frequency noise. The audio you hear from your system is essentially the incoming electricity itself, and the typically violent storms riding the AC line and its ground is very detrimental to the performance of your components. Highly resolving audio systems can retrieve incredible amounts of detail from your favorite recordings. Unfortunately, they can also reveal problems elsewhere in the power chain—especially when it comes to noise flowing through your valuable components from your AC power mains. High-frequency noise and electromagnetic noise are radiated through a system by the antenna effect, and this noise is difficult to remove. Many makers of power distribution products will try to minimize the adverse effects of the noise with a simple electrical circuit, whereas the Pure Power 6 NCF, through use of special grade materials, isolation and grounding methods, incorporates a method of “induction and absorption” to eliminate this noise. Tests results show (graph 1) the surprising effectiveness of the “induction and absorption” method of the Pure Power 6 NCF as compared to the industry standard circuit method for reducing high-frequency and electromagnetic noise.

-Test method-

Input of high-frequency reference noise signal into the Pure Power 6 NCF AC inlet with the measurement of the noise signal output from the Pure Power 6 NCF outlets.

-Test result-

10MHz near, at once attenuation in the 100MHz from per 2MHz. It has been successful in quite significant noise induction. It is characteristic of the startle.

Dramatic reduction of noise between 2MHz to 10MHz, and complete elimination of noise at 100MHz proving the effectiveness of the Pure Power 6 NCF induction and absorption method. This will offer improved S/N ratio and ultimately improved sound performance from your system.
