Furutech’s new NCF Clear Line is an audio grade passive AC optimizer, small enough to hold in your hand, that you simply plug it into any vacant mains socket on either a power distributor or wall outlet.

In a bold statement, Furutech claim: “It takes just a moment to notice the difference that the NCF Clear Line can make to both audio and video systems. You won’t have to switch back and forth repeatedly to discern an improvement. It’s right there. Immediate.”,

Nano Crystal2 Formula

At the heart of this claim is Furutech’s NCF, or Nano Crystal2 Formula, an in-house invention that features a special crystalline material that has two distinct properties: it generates negative ions that eliminate static, and it converts thermal energy into far infrared. When this material is combined with nano-sized ceramic particles and carbon powder, its crystals become the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping material. Created by Furutech, NCF is found exclusively in Furutech products.

NCF Clear Line

Now, with the NCF Clear Line, Furutech has introduced perhaps the simplest way to bring the benefits of NCF technology into your home. The NCF Clear Line is an entirely passive device that contains no electronics, hence it does not interfere with the power current. Instead, it eliminates electrical and mechanical resonance from the power socket and AC circuit thanks to a combination of the NCF material with air coils designed to draw and damp the vibrations from the socket’s electrodes.

Furutech claim improvements in both sound and visual quality in audio and AV applications.

Features & Specifications

Main body formed with nylon resin and glass fibre incorporating NCF.

Four-layer housing (shell) formed from special resonance damping nylon and precise combinations of NCF and carbon fibre.
