Following on from the success of their original GT2 USB cable, Japanese cable experts Furutech now introduce the higher specified GT2 Pro.
Featuring 24k gold-plated non-magnetic USB 2.0 connectors and Furutech’s new Alpha* OCC (Ohno Continuous Cast) silver-copper alloy conductor, the GT2 Pro is a beautifully engineered and built USB 2.0 cable, designed with the audiophile in mind.
More and more music lovers are building up audio collections on their computer hard drives and the audiophiles among them are rightly keen to seek accurate, high performance sound. With an increasing number of USB-input DACs now available to serve their needs, computer-based systems have become capable of delivering smooth and detailed sound, particularly with high resolution recordings. But as with any system component, you need high quality, well-engineered, low-jitter USB cables to achieve that.
Furutech’s GT2 Pro USB cable is formed around special Alpha* OCC silver copper alloy conductors with superior high-density polyethylene insulation/dielectric. It features three-layer shielding and specially engineered 24k gold-plated USB 2.0 connectors with a special 24k gold-plated copper alloy EMI shield incorporated into the connector. The cable wrap includes excellent damping and insulating materials, selected to deliver improved frequency extension and tonal balance. A carefully engineered clamp improves grip and keeps both mechanical and electrical distortion at bay.
The result? Clear and open highs, elegant midrange textures, powerful but controlled bass and an enhanced sense of the sheer palpability of the music. The GT2 Pro creates a true musical experience from the data stored on your computer. Furutech produces every cable in their range in the same way: optimized engineering solutions applied to advanced materials and processes, backed by utterly meticulous build quality.
Founded in 1988, Tokyo-based Furutech designs and manufactures an extraordinary range of analogue and digital, power and coaxial A/V cables and related accessories. The company also offers a full line of elegantly engineered and designed power distribution and filter components, and makes a wide range of the highest quality OEM A/V connectors and other signal transfer parts including power, speaker, IEC and specialized hyper audio quality outlet receptacles.
Furutech’s pure transmission design concept seeks to improve every element of signal transmission, from the AC to the speaker. All metal components are treated with Furutech’s proprietary 2-Stage Alpha Cryogenic and Ring Demagnetization Process during manufacture, ensuring the lowest achievable levels of distortion and noise.
The company’s mission is to build the best possible products at a price/performance ratio that deeply satisfies every customer.
* The Furutech ‘Alpha Process’ explained
Using cutting-edge technology and materials, Furutech developed its proprietary two-stage ‘Alpha’ cryogenic and ring demagnetization treatment process to significantly improve every facet of audio and video performance.
The treatment begins with a deep, conditioning cryogenic freezing of all metal parts. Using high-end refrigerants, liquid N2 or He, Furutech achieves temperatures of between -196 and -250° C. The treated parts change their molecular structure at these extremes of temperature, relieving internal stress. The molecules bond together more tightly and the overall structure becomes more stable. This improves electrical conductivity, enhancing power and signal transfer.
Step two of the process then exposes these same metal parts to a patented ring demagnetization treatment, which uses controlled attenuation to completely eliminate magnetization, further enhancing the conductivity of all treated materials.
All metal parts used in Furutech products undergo this two-Stage Alpha Process to keep all connectors, conductors, and other metal parts in a perfect stress-free, stable and highly conductive state. Used in tandem with other design features, the result is the most optimised AC power transfer possible.
