Pushing Tonal &
Spatial Boundaries

The next evolutionary step of our award-winning IC-3 design eliminates solder in the signal path.  A patented process deep cryogenic treatment, and Furutech’s Nano Liquid enhance conductivity and performance. The result is a highly musical interconnect with richly refined tonal characteristics, resolved frequency extremes, improved micro and macro dynamic shadings, and holographic spatial cues.

THE CABLE AT THE CORE

Multiple stranded, silver-coated OFC copper conductors insulated in an ultra-low loss foamed Polyethylene dielectric, in a low capacitance design. 100% aluminum mylar shielding provides immunity to noise, with an upgraded, durable Techflex jacket.

Connector Options

FURUTECH FT-111(G) & FT-111(R) RCA

Furtech’s FT-111(G) and FT-111(R) locking RCA’s feature a high-conductivity signal path, with one piece rhodium or 24k gold plated alpha pure copper one-piece conductors, designed for minimal impedance. Every part of the signal path is optimized, resulting in an RCA that extracts every bit of performance from our cable design, and exceptional sound quality. Non-magnetic materials, a non-resonant SUS housing, and screw terminals allowing for our solderless, Nano Fluid enhanced connection. Low mass, a silky smooth locking mechanism, and a stunning finish are hallmarks of this highly innovative part. Choose the FT-111(R) for a slightly more neutral presentation, or the FT-111(G) to add a touch of warmth to your sound.

SOUND CONNECTIONS XHADOW REFERENCE XLR

Precision, elegant machined art, the Xhadow XLR is considered one of the finest hi-fidelity XLR‘s in the world, and is designed with the audiophile perspective in mind. Made from pure aluminum rod-stock and anodized in “Xhadow Gray” for a durable and non-conductive finish, the main barrel assembly houses an internal strain relief. Into the barrel this fits a “Gender-Module”, creating a male or female plug. A mirror plated outer passive shell houses a machined Teflon dielectric, and pure copper machined silver-plated contact pins, which give a rich, but nicely resolved sonic character. Solder-free set screw terminal option.
