Customer Notice: Counterfeit Furutech products shipping out of China

Customer Notice: Counterfeit Furutech products shipping out of China.

We have many confirmed cases of counterfeit “Furutech” product and cases of other brands’ counterfeit product show Furutech’s trademarked “NCF” logo shipping out of China and Hong Kong. Please be advised that while Furutech does supply Furutech made NCF connectors to select cable and component makers, Furutech does not supply the NCF material only for use in a maker’s product. Therefore, if you find the NCF logo on a connector or socket not made by Furutech, it will be counterfeit product (example: Acrolink NCF connectors and receptacles).
NCF is also a registered trademark to Furutech (“NCF” USA Reg No. 5,145,049; “NCF” Germany No. 30 2016 000 978; “NCF” China No. 18881752; “NCF” Japan No. 5855796)

Here at Furutech, we are being vigilant in having Furutech and NCF badged counterfeit product removed from popular ecommerce platforms. However, Chinese based ecommerce platforms AliExpress and Taobao have been problematic and they give little regard to legitimate trademark infringements.
Please be advised that any Furutech or NCF badged product on AliExpress or Taobao shipping out of China or Hong Kong is without a doubt counterfeit.
Also, please note that NO Furutech product or Furutech product part is made in China, so our products are not easily accessible there. Also, Chinese import duties on Japanese products are extremely high, so finding low cost authentic Furutech product in China would be impossible.

New NCF Clear Line AC Optimizer

NCF Clear Line

AC Power Supply Optimizer

It takes just a moment to hear the difference that Furutech’s NCF Clear Line can make to your audio or video system.

Why just a moment?

Furutech’s Nano Crystal² Formula, also known as NCF, has resulted in a number of truly innovative and effective products over the past few years. NCF features a special crystalline material that has two distinct properties—it generates negative ions that eliminate static, and it converts thermal energy into far infrared.

When combined with nano-sized ceramic particles and carbon powder, these crystals become the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping material. Created by Furutech, NCF is found exclusively in Furutech products and nowhere else.

Now, Furutech has introduced perhaps the simplest way to implement NCF technology into your home—NCF Clear Line.

NCF Clear Line is an audio grade AC optimizer, small enough to hold in your hand, that instantly enhances the quality of your power supply. Simply plug the NCF Clear Line into any vacant receptacle on either a power distributor or wall outlet. For best effect, use the NCF Clear Line on the same AC line/supply as your system, preferably at a receptacle adjacent to your system.

It only takes a moment to hear the improvement in the sound. You won’t have to switch back and forth repeatedly in order to “discover” an improvement. It’s right there.

You’ll immediately notice 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.

Then unplug the NCF Clear Line from the power receptacle. You’ll immediately miss those sonic improvements. You’ll want them back.

In home theater applications, you will also hear these same distinct results. Just as importantly, you’ll see the difference in your video quality. All you need to do is plug the NCF Clear Line into your home entertainment system and the improvements will be instantly noticeable.

Sharper. Clearer. Yet more natural and easy on the eyes.

It only takes a moment to take your listening or viewing experience to the next level with Furutech’s NCF Clear Line. Find out for yourself.

-               Improves resolution, focus and 3-dimensionality of performance

The NCF Booster is almost here!

A new kind of audio accessory will be relased by Furutech at the end of October.
The NCF Booster is a multifunctional performance-enhancing connector & cable holder. The much antcipated NCF Booster has been receiving rave reviews in Japanese publications and such was demand that initial production runs sold out to industry insiders in Japan before the NCF Booster even reached audio store shelves.
Furutech has since increased production to allow for international release in late October.

What is the NCF Booster?
It is a multi-material, hybrid constructed performance-enhancing connector & cable holder for superior connetcor and cable damping.
Not only does the Furutech NCF Booster Connector and Cable Holder lift audio cables off the floor minimizing their points of contact with the floor, reducing electromagnetic interference, it also excels at providing NCF damping support for connectors and cables at points of connection. The NCF Booster Connector and Cable Holder allows for the optimum alignment between connectors and sockets and eliminates static – boosting performance by allowing a more pure and clear signal.

NCF: Nano Crystal² Formula
Developed by Furutech, 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 damping properties. The resulting Nano Crystal² Formula, exclusive to Furutech, is the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping material.

VGP2018_Audio_gold_logo  

In Audio Accessory magazine (Japan) top audio commentator Masamitsu Fukuda reports:
…First listening impression after setting the NCF Booster… Something has changed dramatically… muddiness gone… clarity!

Increased sound to noise ratio, strengthened contrast and definition, response speed improved, transparency increased and distortion reduced… improved space, depth and imaging. So surprised by how much of an effect this product brings.

Once set on your system, you won’t want to remove it.
A completely new audio accessory has arrived.

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 recordings with test power cords powering the Sonodore power supply and preamplifier, 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.
– Brendon Heinst

…I have to say, after this test, I am astounded by the quality of this cable. You clearly hear there’s so much more space in the recording, such an openness I’ve never experienced before.

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

The Flux-50 NCF Inline AC Filter

Nano Crystal² Formula (NCF).
Incorporated into selected Furutech products, 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.

The Flux-50 NCF Inline AC Filter lowers 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 image palpability and creates musical highs, an attractive, engaging midrange, tight and controlled bass, plus you’ll notice power and dynamics to spare.

 

New Slimline Power Cord Series

The Roxy

New High Performance Power Cord designed for Analog Components

The Roxy Power Cord has been designed and tuned to complement a wide range of analog components. It delivers a balanced energy allowing for a powerful, yet stable and defined bass. Greater extension at both low and high frequencies delivers clears and dynamic imagery in an ultra-quiet soundstage. The new slimline IEC connector also allows for easy connection to light weight components, like phono stages and is perfect for fitting space restricted IEC sockets that can be found on some high-end components.

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.

Nano Crystal² Formula – Nano Crystalline, Ceramic and Carbon Powder

Incorporated into new NCF series of Furutech products, Nano Crystal² Formula — NCF is comprised of a special crystalline material that has two “active” properties. First, it generates negative ions that eliminate static and secondly, it converts thermal energy into far-infrared. Furutech then combines this remarkable crystalline material with nano-sized ceramic particles and carbon powder for their additional “Piezo Effect” damping properties. The resulting Nano Crystal² Formula is the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping material – only found in Furutech products!

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
