That’s what I’m inferring from your reply and perhaps better fits the context of the Furutech description of the 105-D.
    The teflon sheet comes with the wall plate.

    The 105 D NCF cover is perfectly flush with the GTX receptacle with no "tension" on the cover, adding 1/2 turn bows it in slightly.

    I totally get the confusion on this, it's unconventional and seems like the parts don't fit quite right, but Furutech has said this cover design is better and it's done intentionally.

    I have a question to all those who replaced their AC and IEC connectors from Oyaide M1/F1 to FI-50M NCF(R)/FI-50 NCF(R)?

    In this thread some members did mention the fact that they had made the switch but failed to provide a clear description of what exactly they liked with the Furutech more and in what areas Furutech is superior to Oyaide. Thank you!

    Hi.
    Testing my brand new NCF Booster.
    Really interesting tweak.
    I have it supporting my Göbel PC on the IEC TAD C600 connector.
    It has a really audible improvement.
    More focused image, less noise floor, sweeter highs, more organic sound, warmer presentation, more depth...
    Maybe it lacks both ends extension or it is the result of less distortion....
    I feel less dynamic presentation.
    I couldn’t imagine such a sound change...
    I have to try removing the top cover to see if i get a middle impact sonic signature.
    Until now, too much impact on sound.

    I bought both the outlets and the NCF cable boosters for my new showroom which is not yet finished.
    I have however had a few clients purchase the cable boosters to try and both of them have purchased additional units telling me that they were totally surprised at how much of a positive difference they made.
    I really purchased them because the Gobel power cords are large and heavy and in some applications these would be able to support them and hold them in place perfectly. We had an issue like this originally at Priaptor's. I had put them on the back burner since I have a lot of things going on and sitting down to try one of these wasnt a top priority. After receiving the feedback I am going to have to make time to get that done. Next trip to hear my speakers at the Priaptor's lair is going to have to be it before Axpona happens. Get ready Howie!!!!!!!

    NCF Booster is widely used by Hong Kong audiophiles.
    Our experience is that it should be used for high current positions such as wallsockets, power-conditioners, poweramps ... etc
    Using them on small current positions may have the pitfalls of reduced airiness/ambiance/dynamics.

    Thank you CK.

    What differences have you find between high vs low current booster positions?
    I have my booster supporting a new Göbel PC that it is still on burning progress....
    The Göbel PC is connected to the big TAD C600 power supply.
    I have to wait until break in progress finish to do different tests....

    Regards.

    Hi CK.

    I'm agree with your experience. Once PC fully broken, the NCF Booster makes the effect you describe.
    I was working on spikes, toe in, until i've removed it and sound returns to glorious development.

    Greetings....

    CKKeung, are you using the NCF Booster on the power cord of your ARC 40 Anniv preamp? If so, what are the results?
