Furutech has released a new by-the-metre, off-the-reel loudspeaker cable for professional studios or home listening rooms.

The company’s new flagship off-the-reel loudspeaker cable, the DSS-4.1, features Furutech’s ‘OCC-DUCC’ conductors. These are constructed using a combination of the company’s own Alpha-treated Ohno Cast Copper (OCC) with Ultra Crystallized High Purity Copper (DUCC), developed by the Materials division of Mitsubishi, a leading manufacturer of the highest-purity oxygen-free copper in the world.

DUCC Conductor

The Mitsubishi DUCC conductor begins with an extremely pure oxygen-free copper, which is then processed using new technology designed to optimally align the conductor’s crystals, while also reducing the number of crystal-grain boundaries, resulting in a tremendously efficient conductor.

Furutech’s OCC conductor, meanwhile, offers the benefit of larger and more ‘fibrous’ crystals, in which one dimension is longer than the other two, so as to create as few crystal junctions as possible. Again, since the copper molecules/crystals that make up the conductor wire are elongated in the direction of the conductor, fewer crystal boundaries occur within any length of wire.

Cryogenic Treatment

All metal parts are treated with Furutech’s trademark two-stage ‘Alpha’ cryogenic and demagnetization process, designed to render the metal stress-free, stable and highly electrically conductive.

Overall diameter 19mm approx.

Pricing & Availability

Furutech’s DSS-4.1 loudspeaker cable is available now priced at £350 per mono metre (including VAT).
