FURUTECH EMPIRE MAINS POWER LEAD
- Furutech build quality
- Cryo treated as standard
- 1.5 metre standard length
The new Empire power cable features the company’s innovative ‘PC-Triple C’ power conductor, which is crafted using a proprietary forging process involving repeated rounds of metal folding – not unlike the method used to create the katana, the famous Japanese Samurai sword. In this case, however, Furutech applies variable levels of high pressure to high-purity oxygen-free copper (OFC), resulting in a forging process that would be the equivalent of folding the steel of a katana tens of thousands of times. This process ensures that the crystal grain boundaries deep inside the copper are rearranged so that the electrical current travels through the signal path more smoothly than ever before.
A low capacitance, audio-grade PVC dielectric surrounds each of the Empire’s three 45-strand conductors. The three are then encased in an inner sheath created from lead-free, audio-grade PVC impregnated with electrically conductive carbon particles to damp the cable and reduce the adverse effects of static on the audio signal. This whole is then screened from external RFI pollution by way of a conductor shield constructed from a multi-strand OFC wire braid. An ultra-flexible outer sheath, again in lead-free, audio-grade PVC, surrounds the shield and the complete assembly is then housed in a tough outer sleeve of braided nylon yarn.
The Empire power cable is finished with Furutech’s renowned gold-plated power connectors, featuring the company’s patented Floating Field DamperTM grounding system, in which all metal screws in a connector are tied to ground via a metal ‘bridge’ to prevent the flow of noise and significantly reduce distortion for ultra clean and stable power transfer.
In both the Empire and the Roxy, all metal parts are treated with Furutech’s trademark two-stage ‘Alpha’ cryogenic and demagnetization process, designed to render all metals stress-free, stable and highly electrically conductive – and enabling that all-important Furutech goal of “pure transmission”.
