Furutech e-TP809E NCF 6 Way Schuko Mains Distribution Block
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 e-TP809 NCF is a sophisticated, luxuriously made power distributor of almost unbelievable quality that eliminates many problems caused by poor connections, contact resistance, EMI, RFI, and lack of resonance control.
It’s All About the Receptacles
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 the AC power.
Central to the e-TP809 NCF’s success at controlling resonances are the extreme high performance Furutech GTX-NCF Pure Transmission AC receptacles. The GTX-D NCF manifests a devotion to best performance in every element of AC and signal transfer. 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 most receptacles. Furutech’s intense engineering scrutiny has resulted in an industry-first, a technique allowing us to use special Furutech rhodium-plated α (Alpha) pure copper conductors strengthened and sprung by our innovative nonmagnetic Stainless Steel Conductor Spring System that keeps a firm grip yet won’t damage male connector blades or their plated surfaces. But what really sets the GTX-D NCF receptacle apart is “NCF” – Furutech’s ultimate damping material - Nano Crystal² Formula eliminates static, “interconverts” thermal, mechanical and electrical energy and damps vibrations. The GTX-D NCF can be summed up in a word; virtuoso!
With a further eye to resonance control and tight, secure connections—illustrated below—the e-TP809 NCF is equipped with patented Axial Locking Screws. They’re hand-torqued at the factory and measurably reduces receptacle resonance by a factor of ten!
As illustrated below, the e-TP809 NCF is wired with Furutech α (Alpha)-CB10 conductors—5.5 sq. mm 10 AWG—ensuring very low electrical resistance, and the star-wired conductors are sheathed within resonance-absorbing tubing. There’s also a layer of Formula GC-303 bonded to bottom plate that effectively shields against EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference).
Naturally the chassis is made of the highest-grade aluminum to effectively shield against RFI (Radio Frequency Interference). Befitting a unit of such style and effectiveness, it’s equipped with a beautifully-crafted aluminum top plate dressed in an elegant carbon fiber finish.
