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 XLR connectors
[FP-601M (R)] and [FP-602F (R)] transfer signal without reflections for
extremely low jitter performance
• Pins high-contact luxuriously-finished
nonmagnetic rhodium-plated phosphor bronze for stable Furutech Pure Transmission
signal
• 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.

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.”
