– e-TP80ES – European version
The e-TP80S / e-TP80ES is a sophisticated, luxuriously made power filter/distributor that eliminates many common problems found with audio and video components caused by massively contaminated electrical power.
The AC waveform becomes severely distorted by ground noise, voltage spikes, and sags, high-frequency power supply noise from other components in your own system, plus radiated high-frequency digital noise 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 electronic devices on the same circuit.
Additionally, you’re never alone; your residential AC mains 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!
How can you tell you’re a victim of polluted AC power? Listen and look for these symptoms: Flat, hard, grainy high frequencies, a thick and bloated midrange, fat, uncontrolled bass, and loss of air and soundstage stability. On video displays, the picture resolution is less than sharp, with “ghosting”, color shift, “snow”, or vertical and horizontal lines. If this looks and sounds familiar, you need Furutech!
The beautifully crafted special grade aluminum chassis effectively shields against another common problem, RFI (Radio Frequency Interference), and a layer of Formula GC-303 blocks EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference). Internal wiring is Furutech μ-14 wire (14 AWG) that guarantees low resistance. Furutech Hyper Quality Audio Grade Receptacles are wired to the IEC AC input of the e-TP80S / e-TP80ES. Receptacles feature 24K gold-plated phosphor bronze, non-magnetic conductors for stable, long-lasting, optimized power transfer.
The upgraded units feature new MOV circuitry that will automatically cut power to the main circuit board EMI filter to prevent short circuits and protect your system. In addition, the audio grade MOV circuitry will dampen any electrical and mechanical resonance caused by electrical resistance, heat, and power flow. For convenience, LEDs indicate the normal function of the e-TP80ES surge protection function and EMI filters. When the LEDs are “on” you are noise-free and surge protected.
