|Furutech’s Award-Winning Pure Transmission Build Quality
Many A/V enthusiasts go to great lengths to carefully set up major system components, but pay little attention to the source, the AC power. Furutech knows that each and every part of the chain is as important as the next, so maximum attention is lavished by Furutech on all aspects of AC power transfer.
Meticulous build quality is a large part of the engineering equation. Furutech Pure Transmission quality turns a macro lens on every element of power and signal transfer applying optimized engineering solutions to well-known problems such as contact resistance, EMI and RFI rejection, grounding, and using the best materials and processes available.
GC-303 is a special material Furutech bonds to the interior bottom-plate of the chassis (see illustration below) that absorbs EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) generated by the internal fittings of the unit. The e-TP 609 uses no filtering besides Formula GC-303 so AC resistance is kept to a minimum, allowing a more resolving, powerful, dynamic, and colorful performance from your components.
Furutech’s Patent-Pending Axial Locking System
Furutech designed a special locking screw (see illustration below) that anchors each duplex receptacle preventing oscillation and enhancing long-term stability. Further, a special 3M material isolates the duplex outlets from resonance. Total attention to detail: Each Axial Lock is torqued to perfection to work with the 3M resonance control material, with 4 spikes provided to mount the entire unit.
“Sometimes simpler solutions are better solutions—a notion that perhaps explains why Furutech’s e-TP609 six-outlet power distribution module works so well. … The e-TP609 is not a “power conditioner,” since it doesn’t provide active, in-line power-purification/filtration circuitry of any kind. … a simple six-outlet power-distribution box that features a robust metal chassis, high-quality vibration-damped “Axial Locking” AC outlets, ultra-high-purity copper wiring, and passive noise filtration via strategically placed panels of an EMI-absorptive material called GC-303 … In practice, the e-TP609 yields a noticeable reduction in background noise and grunge, coupled with a smooth, organic sound that allows music’s natural beauty to flow freely.”
