Anybody using the FURUTECH GTX-D NCF (R) RECEPTACLES.

I'm interested in others experience when combined with a dedicated line.

Can't speak to the NCF. However, I am using two of the GTX-D(R) receptacles - each on a dedicated line. I'm also using Furutech alpha power / interconnect cables with carbon fiber plugs, which replaced Cardas Golden Reference cables. Very clean, detailed and neutral. The furutech products are excellent.

Similar experience here. Not the exact NCF but Furutech with dedicated line has been great for me. It's not only about the sound being clean etc but the consistency of good power (and sound) quality.

How can you tell they are neutral?

Probably in comparison to the warm signature of Cardas cables!!! 8)

Why don't you ask dazed2? You need to ask for his approval anyway.

I would if he knew anything about it...which he doesn't. 8)

Based on what I've read so far I have ordered two for myself...will arrive next week.

I found the Cardas GR cables to be very good - I wouldn't classify the sound as warm like some of the other cables in their line-up. The biggest difference for me was the immediacy and dynamic impact with the furutech products installed.

Alan:

You will need the following components to reap the full benefits:

Furutech GTX Wall
Furutech GTX-D NCF (Rhodium receptacle)
Furutech 105-D NCF (Carbon Fiber Plate Cover)

Don't hurt yourself installing these. :lol:

Happy Listening,
Francis R. :D

I've been using the full NCF package since it came out. Absolutely phenomenal! Prior to that I had used both the GTX-D (R) and (G). In my system, I had preferred the gold over the rhodium, but then the NCF seemed to take the best of both and go further yet. Anybody else that has gone this route through us has raved about the incredible quality of the Furutech NCF products. Since then, I've also gone with the E-TP609 NCF distributor (I had the non-NCF one prior) and have made power cables with their NCF bulk power cable and full NCF plugs. Furutech is definitely on a roll with these products.

Oh great, I just rebuilt both my listening rooms with dedicated lines and GTX-D(G) throughout a couple years ago.
And now I have to swap these out for GTX-NCF!!! Come one, will this ever end. :cry:
Thanks Furutech, for being so damn effective with your R&D. :evil:
:wink: :D

LOL. Yes, while I think the NCF are definitely a step up, you can be assured you still have incredible outlets with the GTX-D (G)! Furutech certainly doesn't stop their research and they amaze me how they continually are able to make great products even better. :)
