Furutech FT-818(R) High Performance Binding Post
All audiophiles search for the same qualities: Verisimilitude to the original event, a sense of engagement promoting suspension of disbelief, a visceral immersion in the audio video experience. They also know that everything in the signal path makes a difference, and that includes speaker binding posts.
This critical connection often proves the weakest link in the quest for tight, low-distortion signal. Change your cables a few times and speaker binding posts can loosen. It’s bad enough in modestly-priced speakers where the simple remedy is to unscrew the back plate and tighten the offending nut. With expensive stand-mounted monitors or larger, more costly speaker systems why take the risk? The Torque Guard binding post sits at the very highest rung of build quality and musical performance, maintaining the tightest, most noise-free and undistorted signal path possible.
Furutech’s beautifully finished, beautiful sounding Torque Guard Binding Posts are the result of meticulous engineering and careful audition of various suitable materials. The FT-808 features an α (Alpha) pure copper conductors for minimal impedance and substantially-built extremely nonresonant carbon fiber, nonmagnetic stainless steel and eutectic copper alloy housings. The unique patent-pending Torque Guard technology, which prevents over-tightening, allows each post to be evenly tightened for improved channel balance and signal transfer.
