– e-TP80ES NCF – European version
The e-TP80S NCF / e-TP80ES NCF is a sophisticated, luxuriously made power filter/distributor that eliminates many common problems found with audio and video components caused by massively contaminated electrical power.
The AC waveform becomes severely distorted by ground noise, voltage spikes, and sags, high-frequency power supply noise from other components in your own system, plus radiated high-frequency digital noise 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 electronic devices on the same circuit.
Additionally, you’re never alone; your residential AC mains 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!
How can you tell you’re a victim of polluted AC power? Listen and look for these symptoms: Flat, hard, grainy high frequencies, a thick and bloated midrange, fat, uncontrolled bass, and loss of air and soundstage stability. On video displays, the picture resolution is less than sharp, with “ghosting”, color shift, “snow”, or vertical and horizontal lines. If this looks and sounds familiar, you need Furutech!
The beautifully crafted special grade aluminum chassis effectively shields against another common problem, RFI (Radio Frequency Interference), and a layer of Formula GC-303 blocks EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference). Internal wiring is Furutech μ-14 wire (14 AWG) that guarantees low resistance. Furutech Hyper Quality Audio Grade Receptacles are wired to the IEC AC input of the e-TP80S NCF / e-TP80ES NCF. Receptacles feature Rhodium-plated pure copper, non-magnetic conductors for stable, long-lasting, optimized power transfer.
The upgraded units feature new MOV circuitry that will automatically cut power to the main circuit board EMI filter to prevent short circuits and protect your system. In addition, the audio grade MOV circuitry will damp any electrical and mechanical resonance caused by electrical resistance, heat, and power flow. For convenience, LEDs indicate the normal function of the e-TP80S NCF / e-TP80ES NCF surge protection function and EMI filters. When the LEDs are “on” you are noise-free and surge protected.
Nano Crystal² Formula (NCF):
Incorporated into selected Furutech products, NCF features a special crystalline material that has two ‘active’ properties. First, it generates negative ions that eliminate static. Second, it converts thermal energy into far-infrared. Furutech combines this remarkable material with nano-sized ceramic particles and carbon powder for their additional ‘piezoelectric effect’ damping properties. The resulting Nano Crystal² Formula is the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping material. Created by Furutech, it is found exclusively in Furutech products.

High-quality nano-ceramic particle composite Isolator Footers.
All metal parts are treated with Furutech’s Two-Step Cryogenic and Demagnetizing Alpha Process
A layer of Formula GC-303* bonded to the bottom plate effectively shields against EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference)
*Formula GC-303 is a special material that Furutech layers and bonds to the interior bottom-plate of the chassis. It actually absorbs EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) generated by the internal fittings of the unit. GC-303 absorbent filtering ensures that AC resistance is kept to a minimum, allowing a more resolving, powerful, dynamic, and colourful performance from your components
