Furutech NCF Booster Signal - Connector & Cable Holder
The Furutech NCF Booster Signal is a cable and connector support that elevates system performance and fidelity. Having first been a real success in Japan, the NCF Booster is now here!
What is the NCF Booster ?
It is a cable support and multi-material connectors improving the performance of these. Thus, the NCF Booster does not just elevate your cables from the ground to limit the contact points thus reducing electromagnetic interference. It also ensures real damping of cables and connectors, allowing optimal alignment to reduce static loads. By its action, the NCF Booster allows to obtain a signal more pure and clear.
Not only does the Furutech NCF Booster-Sinal Connector and Cable Holder lift audio cables off the floor minimizing their points of contact with the floor, reducing electromagnetic interference, it also excels at providing NCF damping support for connectors and cables at points of connection. The NCF Booster-Signal allows for the optimum alignment between connectors and sockets and eliminates static – boosting performance by allowing a more pure and clear signal.
NCF : Nano Crystal² Formula
Developed especially by Furutech, the NCF incorporates a special crystalline material with two active properties. First, it generates negative ions to eliminate static charges. Secondly, it converts thermal energy into infrared. Furutech therefore combines this material with remarkable properties with ceramic nanoparticles as well as carbon powder to ensure piezoelectric damping. The result of using the Nano Crystal² Formula is obtaining the ultimate mechanical and electrical absorber.
The word crystal, when applied to sound reproduction, is a truly desirable thing. When you describe a sound system as “crystal-clear,” for instance, you’re referring to its ability to offer an open and transparent window into the original recording event. You might also use this phrase to suggest a lower noise floor, less distortion, or anything else that gets you, the listener, closer to the music you love.
Furutech has produced decades of unrivaled innovation within the audio industry. We have enabled listeners all over the world to get closer to their favorite music by making it sound as crystal-clear as possible. We have accomplished this enviable feat through careful research based upon solid scientific principles, and exhaustive listening tests to confirm those results.
These aren’t “magic” crystals, mind you, but a new crystallized material that actively generates negative ions to eliminate static and converts thermal energy into far infrared. There is nothing mysterious about the way these crystals work—quite simply, they improve audio performance in a very specific and measurable way.
The story behind these crystals is simple as well. Years ago, a Japanese research team discovered that these crystals affected sound quality in a certain way—a very positive way. After learning about this research, Furutech decided to test these crystals under strict conditions. After experimenting with countless forms and composites, the Furutech team found a proprietary use for this material that would excel in audio applications.
Furutech achieved this by combining these crystals with nano-sized ceramic particles and carbon powder to create a piezoelectric effect, which results in even better damping properties. This didn’t happen overnight—this material is the culmination of 30 years of steady and consistent research at Furutech.
We dubbed this material NCF, which stands for Nano Crystal² Formula.
The NCF Booster-Signal is a simple cable elevator that can be placed along runs of cable, or even at the connection point. The height of the Booster is adjustable, so you can dress your cabling more efficiently. You can install NCF Boosters throughout your system in a matter of minutes, and immediately notice the results.
In other words, it’s incredibly easy to hear the differences that Furutech NCF Boosters will bring to your audio system. Once you hear them, the choice will be crystal-clear.
