Furutech’s top-of-range Lineflux NCF phono-to-phono interconnect cables “employ all kinds of exotic aerospace-grade materials and process,” writes Martin Pipe in the magazine’s March issue. They offer “high-tech design, impressive build quality and strong performance” with “audible improvements in micro-detailing and background blackness.”
At the signal-carrying core of the Lineflux NCF are solid-core OCC copper conductors, encased in successive outward layers including double-layer shielding, a high-grade polyethylene dielectric and a composite sheath incorporating resonance damping nano ceramic and carbon powder for improved signal transmission.
All metal parts are treated with Furutech’s trademark two-stage ‘Alpha’ cryogenic and demagnetization process, designed to render the metal stress-free, stable and highly electrically conductive.
“The Lineflux boasts Furutech’s latest CF-102 NCF (‘Nano Crystal Formula’) phono plugs, which are themselves beautifully made, high-tech joys to behold,” writes Pipe.
“These tonally-neutral cables perform extremely well… a palpable reduction in low-level noise is evident. At the same time, I could hear more rhythmic ‘snap’ and perceive nuances that had hitherto been buried in a hi-res recording.”
