Furutech Power Guard-E48 Inline Filter Power Cable, 1.5M
Power Guard-E48: AC 250V 10A 50/60Hz
AC Power Can Make or Break Your System!
The audio you hear from your home entertainment system is essentially the incoming electricity itself, and the typically violent storms riding the AC line and its ground is very detrimental to the performance of your components.
The Power Guard-48 is a sophisticated finished inline power filtering cable that eliminates many common problems caused by contaminated electrical power lines. It protects against distortion caused by ground noise, voltage spikes and sags, high frequency power supply noise from other components in your own system, and finally high-frequency digital noise emanating from processors and digital interconnects.
Plus you’re never alone when you take your listening seat; the residential AC supply is shared with other apartments, homes, and businesses on the same utility transformer explaining why many enthusiasts find their systems perform to a higher standard late at night and over weekends.
And while the Power Guard-48 is a star performer at eliminating common AC problems, it does it all without restricting current draw in any way. Furutech, known for its world-class Pure Transmission engineering, build and finish, have done the tests and the Power Guard-48 does not interfere with current draw. The Furutech FI-48M(R) power connector perfectly complements Furutech’s NEW - (Alpha) PC-Triple C Power cable which utilizes an ingenious proprietary forging process where variable high pressures are applied to high-purity oxygen-free copper tens of thousands of times, ultimately transforming the copper's crystal grain boundaries that were formerly in a vertical direction into a longitudinal orientation to allow the signal to flow more easily down the manufactured cable. The copper's crystals become much more well-connected and uniform, both physically and electrically, creating a much more highly conductive and sonically compelling conductor.
The Power Guard-48 Inline AC Filter lowers noise on every component on which it’s used resulting in very natural and extremely fine resolution down and through the utterly silent noise floor. It improves soundstaging and imaging while creating nuanced high frequencies, an attractive, engaging midrange, tight and controlled bass, with power and dynamics to spare.
