LAN-8 NCF Ethernet Cable
Ultimate High End Audio Grade Cat 8 LAN cable
“The LAN-8 NCF’s have been brilliant here, bringing a definite step forward in our reference streaming/music server applications. The level of transparency and detail continues to move forward (does it ever end?!), especially with the quality of the associated electronics with designs from companies like T+A, Aurender, and exaSound.

Triple Shielding, Deep 24k gold plated RJ45 connector with NCF shell
Category 8 compatible Ethernet LAN cable.
Category 8 (8P8C S/FTP)
• NCF Connector Shell (Multi-material hybrid construction）- NCF features a special crystalline material that has two 'active' properties. First, it generates negative ions that eliminate static. Second, it converts thermal energy into far infrared. Furutech combines this remarkable material with nano-sized ceramic particles and carbon powder for their additional 'piezoelectric effect' damping properties. The resulting Nano Crystal² Formula is the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping material. Created by Furutech, it is found exclusively in Furutech products. NCF delivers improvements in the depth and focus of the sound stage, harmonics and tonal balance with NCF. Low frequencies are cleaner, with a greater sense of definition made possible by a lowered noise floor.
• Category 8 is backward compatible with Categories 7 and 6. It also features improved specifications for crosstalk and system noise than Category 7 with added shielding for each individual wire pair and the cable as a whole. Besides the additional shielding, the LAN-8 NCF features twisted pairs with the number of twists per unit length increasing RF shielding and protecting from crosstalk.
• Category 8 cable allows 40 Gigabit Ethernet and frequencies of up to 2000 MHz (Category 7 X 3.3). Noise interference resistant, providing a fast and stable network environment.
• Main conductor wire: 24 AWG (19/0.12) Silver plated α (Alpha) OCC conductor for minimal transmission loss.
• RJ45(8P8C) Connector: α (Alpha) non-magnetic conductor with deep 24k gold plating and 24k gold-plated copper alloy body with minimal magnetic properties preventing signal degradation.
• 3 Layered Shielding with superior noise isolation aluminum foil and copper braiding exceeding shielding effects of conventional cables. Effectively isolates noise dramatically improving sound reproduction.
• The best damping and insulation materials for improved frequency extension and tonal balance
