Features Resonance-Damped Receptacles and Locking Plates & EMI-Absorbing Formula GC-303
Furutech Co., Ltd., manufacturer of ultra refined analog, digital, video cable and accessories, pulls the cover off the e-TP303 Daytona Multi-Mode AC Filter/Power Distributor, providing comprehensive protection and filtering for your audio or home theater system.
The Daytona: 24 Hour Protection for Pro A/V and High Performance Enthusiasts
The Daytona is designed for professional installers working with high-end home entertainment systems, recording and touring venues, and high performance home enthusiasts.
We’re all looking for the same qualities: Verisimilitude to the original event, a sense of engagement promoting suspension of disbelief, an immersion in audio and video experience. To engage without effort requires meticulous preparation of the entire playback chain especially including the AC mains supply.
The Daytona 303 is a sophisticated, luxuriously made single-chassis power distributor and filtering unit that eliminates many common problems caused by massively contaminated electrical power lines. The AC mains waveform is heavily distorted by ground noise, voltage spikes and sags, high frequency power supply noise from other components in your own system, plus high frequency digital noise radiating from processors and digital interconnects.
There are also distortion products at the top and bottom of the AC waveform created by switch-mode power supplies in small electronics and charging devices on the same circuit. Additionally, you’re never alone; your residential AC supply is shared with other apartments, homes, and businesses on the same utility transformer. That’s why many audio and video enthusiasts notice their systems are more enjoyable late at night or on weekends!
Under the Hood
Like a Daytona GT racer, the Furutech e-TP303 is purpose-made to comprehensively protect your audio and video system with 5250 joules of surge protection plus Stage 3 filtering that dramatically reduces induced, radiated and ground-borne noise. Micro-circuits monitor line voltage and disconnects instantly if dangerous over- or under-voltages occurs, then reconnects once the power returns to safe levels.
The Daytona also features three ultra-advanced isolating filter sections including two analog, two digital, plus another pair of ultra-high-current audio filters. The Daytona also sports 12 surge-protected AC outlets, 3 pair of protected coaxial connections, and 1-in/2-out fully-protected phone line connections.
On the Track
The Daytona 303 relieves your system of flat, hard, and grainy high frequencies, a thick and bloated midrange over wooly bass, a loss of air, detail and soundstage instability. On video displays the picture resolution is sharper, with no ghosting, color shift, snow, or vertical and horizontal lines to spoil the view. If this sounds familiar, you need a Furutech Daytona 303!
The Daytona 303 features four unfiltered outlets: Direct 1 for Power amplifiers and Direct 2 for Preamplifiers and analog devices. There are six digital filtered outlets: Filter 1/Zone 1 for DVD and DVR, Filter 2/Zone 2 for CD, cable and SAT, and Filter 3/Zone 3 for TVs and projectors. All Furutech Pure Transmission receptacles feature nonmagnetic rhodium-plated Alpha phosphor bronze fittings.
The Daytona is beautifully-crafted of the highest-grade aluminum panels with a painted steel chassis that effectively shields against RFI (Radio Frequency Interference). A layer of EMI-absorbing Formula GC-303 bonded to bottom plate effectively shields against EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference). Internal wiring is Furutech Alpha-10, 5.5 sq. mm (10 AWG) for low electrical resistance, and all conductors are insulated with resonance-absorbing tubing
The front panel has eight indicators for abnormal operation including abnormal voltage, filter 1, 2, 3/zone 1, 2, 3, correct path, breaker, digital voltage and digital amperage meter. The rear panel features an attachable LED lamp so you can see what you’re doing, three sets of surge-protected coaxial terminals, surge-protected 3-way phone connections, remote control triggers, a sequence switch, and a voltage selector switch for 120V AC (60Hz) or 100V AC (50/60Hz)
standard rack mounting plates. All conductors are treated with Furutech’s Alpha Cryogenic and Demagnetizing Process
