Furutech NCF Booster

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.

Features

Multi-material hybrid construction – a Furutech original design.
Support unit: audio-grade ABS resin and NCF nylon resin to eliminate static charge.
Top clamp unit: stainless steel block and audio-grade NCF nylon resin.
Base unit: audio-grade ABS resin body with slip-proof, shock-absorbing plate with counterweight.
NCF – Nano Crystal² Formula – Nano Crystalline, Ceramic and Carbon Powder

Incorporated into select 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.

Cable holders (also known as supports, lifters, risers or elevators) are generally designed to improve the performance of audio cables by minimising their points of contact with the floor, reducing electromagnetic interference. Furutech say that their NCF Booster, however, goes even further.

Furutech told us: “Not only does it lift audio cables off the floor and enable optimum alignment between connectors and sockets, it also provides additional damping support for both cables and connectors – boosting their performance by allowing a more pure and clear signal”.

As its name suggests, a key ingredient in the NCF Booster is Furutech’s Nano² Crystal Formula (NCF), an ‘active’ anti-resonance damping material. Developed by, and exclusive to, Furutech, NCF features a special crystalline material that they claim has two active properties. First, that it generates negative ions that eliminate static. Second, that it converts thermal energy into far infrared. Furutech combines this material with nano-sized ceramic particles and carbon powder for their additional piezoelectric damping properties. Furutech claim that the resulting Nano Crystal²Formula delivers superb electrical and mechanical damping and that the effect of that damping, particularly when applied to the critical junction between mains plug and socket, is to reduce audible noise significantly.

Surprisingly effective
Thursday, 27 August 2020  | 

Often mains plus plugs, especially the C15 type, can be a bit wobbly in the component socket. A lot of 'audiophile' mains leads are quite heavy and can pull the plug down adding to the wobbliness. This allows the plug to vibrate in the socket which seems to lead to distortion being introduced.

You only realise the pernicious nature of this when you try the NCF boosters. I found they are most effective on power amps - I guess because there is more vibration here. They removed a whole layer of glare.

I found the signal booster version not as effective, but still worthwhile especially on speaker cables.
