Thanks, Ivan. That't what I was asking for. Any review/test/impression on the new stuff?
I'm glad you're feeling better!

P.S. I should probably move my question on the other thread since it's more on-topic being in the 'Power conditioning' section!

In case anyone is interested, although not yet on ether the Japanese or English websites that I could find the FI-52 NCF(R) and FI-52M NCF(R) 20A connectors are available to order. I had just sent an e-mail to Furutech asking if/when we would see these and to my surprise the response was they are available to order now. Perhaps they are special order only for the time being but at least they exist.

Cool, thanks

When exactly did they hit the streets? It's odd that they don't have product pages yet on the Furuetch websites, not even so much as a "new product" announcement which as far as I can tell all of the other NCF upgraded products received. For example I see the new Schuko NCF sockets are promoted now and will be shown at the Munich High End show.

Hi

Sorry to revive this thread after so long.

I have been using a strip with Cary tube preamp and digital sources on a Furutech GTX-D Gold outlet and Pass power amp to a Maestro on the wall for a while now.

The combination seems decent but lately with some bass heavy recordings I have found the bass thick and boomy on extreme low bass notes. The mids and highs are fine and I tend to be sensitive to bright treble.

I took the preamp out and put it to the Maestro on the wall and this ameliorated the bass somewhat. Everything became fuller sounding but as a result, there was less low bass reverb (sounds contradictory?)

I suspect it is the GTX-D Gold. I am guessing if I replaced that with a GTX-D Rhodium NCF, it will tighten up the bass and hopefully eliminate the excessive low bass reverb. But in doing so, will the highs become too forward, hard or bright as Rhodium tends to be vs Gold?

Any experienced feedback from users who have tried the Maestro, GTX-D Gold and GTX-D Rhodium NCF is much appreciated.

Thanks
