Furutech’s Top-Tier GTX Receptacles Refinement has a New Name….
GTX-D (R) Duplex Pure Copper Duplex Receptacle w/Rhodium Plating $245.00
An excellent Furutech power product, manifesting 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 phosphor bronze or brass in some receptacles. Furutech’s intense engineering scrutiny has resulted in an industry-first, a technique allowing us to use special Furutech 24k gold-or rhodium-plated a(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. Even the screw-down pressure plates are curved to maximize contact area. The GTX receptacle can be summed up in a word; virtuoso!
