Furutech Unveils Ag-12 Tonearm Cable

Furutech AG-12 Tonearm Cable

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.

MSRP: $390 — Available: Now

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…
–Srajan Ebaen, 6moons.com
