Product Infomation  
Top of the line double-shielded α (Alpha)-OCC conductor interconnects, power
cords and digital cables featuring extraordinary build quality and Formula
GC-303 antimagnetic EMI-absorbent modules surrounding the cable offering greater
resolution, more powerful dynamics, and virtuoso performances from all your
components. All connectors are rhodium-plated for optimal signal
transfer.

" Furutech might rightly be thought of as WBT's elder Japanese
brother. Elder and bigger ... Shielding from and against noise pollution in
cables has become more important than ever - and Furutech has developed a very
powerful yet elegant antidote … Bravo."

Features:
• Double-shielded α (Alpha)-OCC Conductors
eliminate radiated noise
• Formula GC-303 Antimagnetic EMI-Absorbent Modules
surround each cable
• High performance beautifully engineered rhodium-plated
connectors [RCA FP-106 (R)] or BNC [FP-3-117 (R)] transfer signal without
reflections for extremely low jitter performance
• Center filament pin
[FP-106 (R)] a high-contact work of engineering art composed of nonmagnetic
rhodium-plated phosphor bronze with Teflon dielectric
• RCA connector
backbone composed of nonmagnetic rhodium-plated eutectic cast copper alloy with
beautifully-finished nonmagnetic copper alloy outer locking shell
• BNC
connectors [FP-3-117 (R)] characteristic impedance 75 ± 5Ω
• Additionally
shielded with special fiberglass and 0.12 mm α (Alpha) conductor braid

Insulated with air-foamed HDPE reducing capacitance and damping vibration

Results in greater resolution, clarity, powerful dynamics, and an ultra-quiet
soundstage in which music develops more fully without artificial upper-frequency
“presence region” glare.
• GC-303 allows a deeper, tighter bass to form a
solid foundation for the rest of the frequency range, better defining the
original recording’s venue. Natural, unforced detail reveals nuance and energy
for an engaging musical experience.


α (Alpha) Conductor Is Composed
Of Fine PCOCC Wire Strands Treated With Furutech’s α (Alpha) Cryogenic and
Demagnetizing Process


Here’s What The Critics Say
“The Furutech
cable sound is easily described as one that completely avoids those peculiar
striations that result from highlighting, the providence of certain silver
cables that emphasize edge definition for nearly surreal image lock. Such sharp
edging then becomes synonymous with etching. It gives a short-lived appearance
of exceptional detail - short-lived since such sound is not only unrealistic but
fatiguing.

“The Furutech cables patently don't cause this. However, they
are exceptionally detailed. I can't help but think that the hexagonal barrel
innards [Formula GC-303 Modules] are at least somewhat responsible for this
wealth of clearly intelligible inner detail. Rather than throwing detail at you,
they throw out inter-note noise. While the end result might seem the same --
more detail -- the way it communicates is very different. Put plainly, the
Furutechs never fatigue even at elevated levels yet they do remain ultra
resolved.”
