The Furutech GTX-D NCF R Pure Copper Duplex Receptacle with Nano Technology and Rhodium Plating.
This is a NEW version of the GTX DR receptacle. The basic body style and features are retained, and the conducting parts are made of pure copper. The difference for the NCF version is that it makes use of Furutech’s Nano-technology to obtain better performance. NCF stands for Nano Conductor Formula. This is a NEW from Furutech pure copper AC receptacle like the original GTX, but here the part is manufactured with Furutech’s NCF technology, which translates into even higher performance that is obvious to the listener at even the first blush of music. SPECIFICATIONS Rhodium-plated (Alpha) Pure Copper Conductor (0.8mm) Nonmagnetic stainless conductor spring system Body material: Nylon/fiberglass with piezo ceramic and carbon damping material Cover material: Polycarbonate Parts set with nonmagnetic 2.0mm-thick stainless brace plate Specified for wire diameters of 4mm (set screw) Dimensions: 104.0 mm (L) x 47.2 mm (W) x 28.0 mm (H) Total attention to detail and build quality extends right down to a specially designed patent-pending conductor pressure plate (see below) that increases contact area Furutech spade terminal FP-209 recommended for 10 AWG wire

Furutech’s Top-Tier GTX–D NCF Receptacles… Refinement has a New Name…
Nano Crystal² Formula (NCF) – 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 – only found in Furutech products!
The Pure Transmission Mission
The GTX-D NCF manifests a devotion to best performance in every element of AC and signal transfer. Considering that what you actually hear is in a very real sense the direct product of the incoming AC then the final few feet are of prime importance for best performance.
Of course everyone would love to make pure-copper receptacles, but its malleability – lack of stiffness – makes pure copper a poor choice. That’s why you’ll find less conductive metals like beryllium copper, phosphor bronze or brass in most receptacles. Furutech’s intense engineering scrutiny has resulted in an industry-first, a technique allowing us to use special Furutech rhodium-plated α (Alpha) pure copper conductors strengthened and sprung by our innovative nonmagnetic Stainless Steel Conductor Spring System that keeps a firm grip yet won’t damage male connector blades or their plated surfaces. But what really sets the GTX-D NCF receptacle apart is “NCF” – Furutech’s ultimate damping material – Nano Crystal² Formula eliminates static, “interconverts” thermal, mechanical and electrical energy and damps vibrations. The GTX-D NCF can be summed up in a word; virtuoso!
