The basic material for the Oyaide F1 is Beryllium Copper, which provides maximum conductivity, strength, and a secure contact.
The surface of the F1 is thoroughly polished TWICE. Then, a layer of platinum (.5 micron) is plated directly onto this polished surface, and the polishing process is again applied twice. Next, the Oyaide F1 receives the final Palladium plating (0.3 micron), and is again polished twice. The combination of these polishing processes, platings, and thicknesses of platings ultimately leads to the final sound character. This connector is Oyaide's best IEC connector, and is its all-out assault on high-end AC connectors
Oyaide M1 and F1 components
For the body of the Oyaide F1, Oyaide has chosen high density PBT, mixed with 30% glass filler. This combination was used to maximize rigidity, thermal stability and provide high resonance absorption. The inner housing is Delrin, while the outer shell is made from a 50 series aluminum alloy.
In our experience, and based on the feedback of our customers, the Oyaide F1 male AC connector has a tonal character that is very natural sounding, resolving, and very balanced throughtout the frequency spectrum. Highs are sweet and extended, mids are layered beautifully, and bass is rock solid, without being lean or suffering from any bloat or note overhang. Soundstaging is second to none. Reserve this connector for only the best cabling and most revealing, musical systems.
