Furutech debuts the Ag-12 Pure Transmission silver-plated Alpha OFC tonearm cable featuring nonmagnetic rhodium-plated DIN and RCA connectors. The sense of mechanical integrity of the Ag-12 tonearm cable’s build is immediately apparent. Furutech Pure Transmission technology turns a macro lens on every element of power and signal transfer applying optimized engineering solutions to well-known problems such as contact resistance, grounding, EMI and RFI rejection, and using the best materials and processes available.
Meticulous attention to build quality is a large part of the engineering equation: Rhodium-plated nonmagnetic pure-copper and phosphor bronze fittings, Furutech’s silver-plated Alpha Conductors with four-layer shielding, and beautifully engineered rhodium-plated DIN and RCA connectors [FP-126R]. The Ag-12 Tonearm Cable’s low-level phono signal is further shielded with a cuff around the cable containing GC-303 EMI-absorbent material. All metal parts are subjected to the deep cryogenic and demagnetizing Alpha Process.

The Critics Speak!
“If, like me, you appreciate taking many sonic steps forward and no steps backward, you’ll want to give these components a try.”
— Chris Martens, The Absolute Sound
“If I had to limit myself to one key term … I’d opt for relaxed ultra resolution. … Things sound bigger. … There’s no funny business of compression, smearing or skewing … The sense of big simply gets bigger and bigger and bigger. … Tolerances are spot on … go in smoothly, locks and unlocks without any undue play … something luxurious and silken about the Furutech connectors. Like fine Swiss watches … perform to a very high standard, getting the tactile satisfaction and pride of ownership…
