NEW ITEM! Furutech's FI-11 series male AC connectors are arguably the best bang for the buck connectors on the market, and will accept larger O.D. cabling (up to 16mm). They are very easy to work with, require no soldering, and will accept up to two 12 AWG wires per terminal. The male blades are made from pure copper and the connector includes Furutech's special "ground jumper" system that connects the housing screws to the safety ground, thus eliminating magnetic interactions. Their clamping mechanism allows superior clamping pressure on the wires, and their cable body clamp is extremely well designed. Mate these with a good AC Wall Receptacle for ultimate performance. Available in the solid (unplated) copper FI-11M (Cu), gold plated copper FI-11M (G), or rhodium plated copper FI-11M (R) versions.

Furutech's premium FI-25 and FI-28 series male AC connectors are incredible sounding connectors, and are very easy to work with. They require no soldering, and will accept up to two 12 AWG wires per terminal. The metallic parts are made with OCC, OFC copper or highly conductive phosphor bronze, and include Furutech's special "ground jumper" that connects the screws to the safety ground, thus eliminating magnetic interactions. The FI-25 and FI-28 also grounds the strain relief clamp screws. Their clamping mechanism allows superior clamping pressure on the wires. All versions also undergo Furutech's proprietary demagnetization process and cryogenic treatment. A deep, thick silver layer is plated over the base metal before the final plating is applied to the Rhodium version. Mate these with a good AC Wall Receptacle for ultimate performance.

NEW ITEM! Furutech has just released the new FI-E35 Schuko connector that has the same clamping mechanism as the FI-25 series, allowing for up to TWO 12AWG conductors per terminal. This is the first and only Schuko connector on the market that uses PURE COPPER for the conductor pins, and is sure to raise the bar yet again for Schuko connectors. Available in gold or rhodium plating. The Furutech FI-E11 series uses a similar clamping mechanism as the US FI-11 series, however, the pins are made with Eutectic brass, and the terminations are similiar to the Furutech FI-10 series IEC inlets. The Furutech FI-E38 series is similar to the FI-E35 series, has a slightly different shell, and an improved strain relief clamping mechanism.

NEW ITEM! VH Audio is pleased to announce the exclusive availability of a GOLD PLATED version of Furutech's flagship FI-50 connector series!

Furutech's state-of-the-art FI-50 Piezo Ceramic series of carbon fiber connectors, including the FI-50 IEC, FI-52 20A IEC, FI-50M Male connector, and FI-E50 Schuko Male connector! The base metal is Furutech's Pure copper (not brass or bronze) Rhodium (or Gold) plated Conductor (made with their alpha process). The FI-50 series uses a similar Earth Ground system, similar to their FI-25 / FI-28 series series. The nylon/fiberglass connector body incorporates nano-sized ceramic particles for absorption of vibrations and resonances. Finally a multi layered nonmagnetic stainless steel and carbon fiber housing, which also incorporates an acetal copolymer. Only the absolute best materials were used for this connector series, and it will now likely become the "cream of the crop" of audiophile power connectors.
* Specified for cable diameters from 6mm to 20mm
* Dimensions: Body length 40.0mm x 40.5mm diameter x 76.2mm overall length
* Metal cable clamp for improved grip and reduction of mechanically and electrically induced distortion. For more information on the new FI-50 series, please click below:

WattGate male AC connectors are the standard by which all other connectors are judged, and represent exceptional value. All the WattGate connectors have been recently updated to use non-magnetic stainless steel screws. They require no soldering, and will accept up to a single 10 AWG wire per terminal (without modification). The brass contacts are available unplated 5266i series, or plated with gold 330i series. WattGate's proprietary plating process uses a layer of OFC copper, followed by electroless nickel, and finally a layer of 24K gold. WattGate connectors are now cryogenically treated by WattGate.

NEW ITEM! WattGate's new SILVER plated 330iAg connectors are now available! They utilize the same plating process as the 330i gold series, but finish with a layer of pure silver, in lieu of 24K gold.

NEW ITEM! VH Audio is pleased to announce the exclusive availability of a GOLD PLATED version of Furutech's flagship FI-50 connector series!

What makes the FI-50 and FI-52 IEC connector unique is its use of Furutech's (Alpha) Pure Copper Rhodium plated conductor (or Gold plated conductor for the FI-50). The FI-50 is the only IEC connector I'm aware of that uses PURE copper (not brass, bronze, beryllium, etc...). The FI-50 also uses Furutech's Earth (Ground) Jumper System (US Patent No.: 6,669,491 ), and employs a nylon/fiberglass body incorporating nano sized ceramic particles for absorption of vibrations and resonances. The multi layered nonmagnetic stainless steel and carbon fiber housing of the FI-50 is absolutely beautiful, and also incorporates an acetal copolymer for optimum performance. Only the best materials were used to make the FI-50.

FI-10(R) & FI-10(G) - The Furutech Rhodium-plated FI-10(R) IEC inlet can be described in one word: CLEAN. The Gold-plated FI-10(G) sounds a bit warmer and is especially suited for digital or solid state equipment. This is a premium IEC inlet that utilizes a nylon/fiberglass housing and high conductivity Phosphor bronze. The Furutech FI-10 IEC inlet is a significant upgrade to most audiophile components, since most stock inlets are made of nickel-plated brass and PVC body. When used in conjunction with the Furutech FI-25 series IEC plugs on your power cord- you'll have a connection that has the "grip of death", in addition to unbelievably good sound. This IEC inlet is very easy to install, and does NOT require any soldering. The wires are simply screwed into the inlet.

* Please note these inlets were originally made with a Flouropolymer body (2004), but have since been manufactured with a nylon/fiberglass body to meet regulatory requirements. Many vendors on the web are not aware of this, and are inadvertently advertising these as having a Flouropolymer body.

FI-09(R) & FI-09(G) - Furutech has just introduced the FI-09 15 AMP PREMIUM Gold or Rhodium plated IEC inlets! This newly designed 15A IEC inlet utilizes the same clamping technology as found in Furutechs 20 amp inlets and connectors. Will accept up to 4mm wire diameter and the clamping plates are made of pure copper, NOT brass.

> More details and cutout dimensions for FI-09 (.pdf) <

FI-33(R) & FI-33(G) - Furutech has recently introduced the FI-33 20 AMP Gold or Rhodium plated IEC inlets! To my knowledge, these are the very first serious attempt at an audiophile grade 20 amp IEC inlet. The clamping mechanism is similar to that of the FI-25 series connectors, but is futher refined with a patent pending pressure plate that increases the surface area and grip of the clamps. You can easily get two 12 AWG conductors into each termination point (H, N, G).

NEW ITEM! FI-03 (G) & FI-03 (R) - Furutech has just introduced the FI-03 15 AMP IEC inlets with an integrated 5X20mm fuse holder. Please note fuses are sold separately. This newly designed 15A IEC inlet means you can the cheapo stock inlets with something of subsantially higher quality. Dimensions: 44.0mm (W) x 28.6mm (D) x 33.0 (H) Rated up to 10A at 250V

The Oyaide Inlet R is a highly anticpated product that is finally here! The Oyaide Power Inlet R is Oyaide's statement inlet, and is very simply composed of just a housing and blades. The housing is made with 30% glass filled PBT, for quality, durability, vibration absorption, and heat resistance. Due to the wider area where the cable is to be attached, it makes soldering work easier compared to a regular power inlet. The blade is trimmed down from phosphor bronze, and after hand polishing, is plated by platinum and palladium, determined to be the best sounding based on Oyaide's repeated tests with prototypes.
