11 AWG Furutech OCC-DUCC Wire + Tweek Geek's Sonic Tonic=Giant Killer
After living with the Furutech FP-S032n, FP-S022n, and FP-S55n we feel eminently qualified to tell you about the DPS-4. It flat-out rocks. Smoothness, Check. Balance, Check. Organic resolution, check check. Dynamic snap, Holy shit CHECK!!! This cable is head and shoulders above the other Furutech cables. The price would indicate as much, and you indeed get what you pay for.
Furutech’s Ultimate-Quality, top-Shelf bulk power cable, the (Alpha) OCC-DUCC is one of a select few of conductors that Furutech engineers have found to truly excel in sound reproduction. (Alpha) OCC –DUCC is constructed using a combination of DUCC Ultra Crystallized High Purity Copper and Furutech’s world famous Pure Transmission (Alpha) OCC.
Furutech's DUCC Ultra Crystallized High Purity Copper is supplied and regulated with strict quality control by Mitsubishi Materials Industries. It is one of the best conductors Furutech engineers have found for signal transmission (MMI is the leading manufacturer of the highest-purity oxygen-free copper in the world).
Rhodium Plated Copper Carbon Fiber Wall Plug and IEC
In an effort to create a superb value power cord, we wanted to create something that sounded great, but wouldn't be outrageously expensive. We use the rhodium plated copper contact connector that after trying many others, gave us the best sound. On top of that the cost was in line with our goal of providing a high value power cord. The main bodies of these connectors are milled out of a billet of copper, chrome plated then dressed with a carbon fiber sleeve. The copper creates a Faraday cage for the delicate junction between wire and connector. They are massive, provide excellent shielding from EMI and RFI and because they are copper, provide great resonance damping as well.
Our Tweaks to the DPS-4 Cord
During assembly, we treat all of the contacts with Furutech's Nano Silver/Gold liquid before the cable is terminated. This is the same liquid that the individual wires are bathed in during the making of the cable. The nano particles of silver and gold are suspended in a squalene oil, when applied to the surface of wire they fill in the microscopic gaps, cracks, etc in the wire which lowers the noise floor. We coat the exposed ends of the wire with Nano liquid right before termination.
Sonic Tonic: Yes, we use the Sonic Tonic inside both connectors. The improvement is staggering, with a much lower noise floor, better bass, and more clarity top to bottom. Level 1 adds the equivalent of 1 full set of Sonic Tonic to each connector, level 2 doubles that with 2 full sets per connector. How do we do it? Instead of putting the Tonic in little bottles, we simply add it to a moldable epoxy and form it around the wires just before they go into their terminations. Being in such close proximity to the EM field enhances the performance of the Tonic, and the amount we are able to get so close to the naked connection really makes for an effective tweak.
Furutech FI-50M & FI-50 Connectors: These are the absolute best connectors available. The Furutech FI-50 M and FI-50 iec connector feature Furutech's Pure Transmission FI-50 Piezo Ceramic series connector bodies and housings feature several breakthrough construction techniques. A multilayer nonmagnetic stainless steel and carbon fiber shell incorporates a special damping and insulating acetal copolymer. Nano-sized ceramic particles and powdered carbon. (Only nano-sized ceramic particles effectively couples with carbon powder.) Nylon and fiberglass are incorporated as well forming an extremely effective, well damped, mechanically and electrically nonresonant connector body. These carefully chosen and tested active materials mechanically and electrically damp the connector and receptacle as they interconvert thermal, mechanical, and electrical energy for the finest Furutech Pure Transmission signal.
