Furutech e-TP80 Power Filtering Distribution +GC-303 Bonding. Furutech Quality that won't break the Bank.
Now at True Audiophile.
We're always looking for power center/conditioners that really work and work for high current applications such as amplifiers. While many companies claim you can use their power conditioners for high current ie amplifiers, we found this to not be true. It always darkens the sounds and muddies the sound stage. After looking for years to find a more affordable solution than the HB Cable and GigaWatt conditioners, we an even better option than the one we used to carry and they performed brilliantly.

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 Crystal2Formula is the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping material. Created by Furutech, it is found exclusively in Furutech products.
The e-TP80S NCF is a sophisticated, luxuriously made power distributor that eliminates many common problems found with audio and video components caused by massively contaminated electrical power.
The AC waveform becomes severely distorted by ground noise, voltage spikes and sags, high frequency power supply noise from other components in your own system, plus radiated high frequency digital noise from processors and digital interconnects.
There are also distortion products at the top and bottom of the AC waveform created by switch-mode power supplies in electronic devices on the same circuit.
Additionally, you’re never alone; your residential AC mains supply is shared with other apartments, homes, and businesses on the same utility transformer.
That’s why many audio and video enthusiasts notice their systems are more enjoyable late at night or on weekends! The beautifully crafted special grade aluminum chassis effectively shields against another common problem, RFI (Radio Frequency Interference), and a layer of Formula GC-303 blocks EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference). Internal wiring is FURUTECH ?-14 wire (14 AWG) that guarantees low resistance.
Furutech Hyper Quality Audio Grade Receptacles are wired to the IEC AC input of the e-TP80S NCF. Receptacles feature rhodium- plated phosphor bronze, non-magnetic conductors for stable, long lasting, optimized power transfer.
Furutech’s Two-Stage Cryogenic and Demagnetization Alpha Process Using cutting-edge technology and materials, Furutech developed a low-temperature two-stage process that significantly improves every facet of audio and video performance.
The treatment begins during the manufacturing process with a deep, conditioning cryogenic freeze of all metal parts. Using high-end refrigerants -- liquid N2 or He -- Furutech achieves temperatures of between -196 to -250°C. The treated parts actually change their molecular structure at these extremes of temperature relieving internal stress.
The molecules bond together more tightly, and the overall structure becomes more stable. This improves electrical conductivity and so power and signal transfer. Step two in the Alpha Process exposes these same parts to the patented Ring Demagnetization treatment.
Ordinary high-power magnets used for this purpose often increase magnetic effects; they leave some areas more magnetized than others. This patented process uses controlled attenuation to completely eliminate magnetization for immediately more vivid and colorful improvements. Ring Demagnetization further enhances conductivity of all treated materials.
ALL metallic parts used in Furutech products go through the Alpha Process treatment to keep all connectors, conductors, and metal parts in a perfect stress-free, stable and highly conductive state. Formula GC-303 GC-303 is a special material Furutech bonds to the interior bottom-plate of the chassis (see illustration below) that absorbs any EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) noise that may be transmitted through your power source or generated by the internal fittings of the unit.
The Final Result The 2-Step Cryogenic and Demagnetizing Alpha Process works in tandem with other design-in features to create the most optimized AC power transfer possible. Furutech’s total awareness and devotion to detail results in a greater sense of power, dynamics, and resolution, with cleaner, blacker backgrounds and a larger, more stable soundstage, vivid tonal colors and deeper extension at both ends of the frequency range.
The e- TP80S NCF will allow the delicacy, refinement and nuance of a performance through, along with micro- and macro-dynamics that will leave you breathlessly engaged. Displays of all types will exhibit greater, sharper resolution with less ghosting, color shift, “snow”, or vertical and horizontal lines.

·GC-303 is a special material that Furutech layers and bonds to the interior bottom-plate of the chassis.
It actually absorbs EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) generated by the internal fittings of the unit.
The e-TP80 uses no other filtering besides GC-303 so AC resistance is kept to a minimum, allowing a more resolving,
powerful, dynamic, and colorful performance from your components.
