The Daytona: 24 Hour Protection for Pro A/V and High-Performance Enthusiasts
All enthusiasts are looking for the same qualities: Verisimilitude to the original event, a sense of engagement promoting suspension of disbelief, an immersion in audio and video experience. Engaging without effort requires meticulous preparation of the entire playback chain especially including the AC mains supply.
The Daytona is a sophisticated, luxuriously made single-chassis power distributor and filtering unit that eliminates many common problems caused by massively contaminated electrical power lines. The AC mains waveform is heavily distorted by ground noise, voltage spikes and sags, high-frequency power supply noise from other components in your own system, plus high-frequency digital noise radiating from processors and digital interconnects.
There are also distortion products at the top and bottom of the AC waveform created by switch-mode power supplies in small electronics and charging devices on the same circuit. Additionally, you’re never alone; your residential AC supply is shared with other apartments, homes, and businesses on the same utility transformer. That’s why many audio and video enthusiasts notice their systems are more enjoyable late at night or on weekends!
Under the Hood
Like a Daytona GT racer, the Furutech Daytona is purpose-made to comprehensively protect your audio and video system with 5250 joules of surge protection plus 3 types of filtering that dramatically reduces induced, radiated, and ground-borne noise. Micro-circuits monitor line voltage and disconnects instantly if dangerous over- or under-voltages occur then reconnect once the power returns to safe levels.
The Daytona also features three ultra-advanced isolating filter sections including two analog, two digital, plus another pair of ultra-high-current audio filters. The Daytona also sports 10 surge-protected AC outlets, 6 Digital filtered outlets (Filter 1, 2 and 3), plus 2 ultra-high-current, 4 unfiltered outlets (Direct 1 and 2). Also 3 pair of protected coaxial connections and 1-in/2-out fully-protected phone line connections.
On the Track
The Daytona relieves your system of flat, hard, and grainy high frequencies, a thick and bloated midrange over woolly bass, a loss of air, detail, and soundstage instability. On video displays, the picture resolution is sharper, with no ghosting, color shift, snow, or vertical and horizontal lines to spoil the view. If this sounds familiar, you need a Furutech Daytona!
