Furutech has announced the release of their new Category 8 High End Performance Ethernet Cable, called the LAN-8 NCF.

Furutech’s LAN-8 NCF is a beautifully engineered and built Category 8 S /F TP twisted pair cable for Ethernet and other high speed signal transfer.

Category 8 cable allows for 40 Gigabit Ethernet transfers and frequencies of up to 2000 MHz (3,3 x Category 7)

The cable features a NCF connector shell (with Multi material hybrid construction).

NCF features a special crystalline material that has two ‘active’ properties. First, it generates negative ions that eliminate static. Second, it converts thermal energy into far infrared. Furutech combines this remarkable material with nano-sized ceramic particles and carbon powder for their additional ‘piezoelectric effect’ damping properties. The resulting Nano Crystal² Formula is the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping material. Created by Furutech, it is found exclusively in Furutech products. NCF delivers improvements in the depth and focus of the sound stage, harmonics and tonal balance with NCF. Low frequencies are cleaner, with a greater sense of definition made possible by a lowered noise floor.

Category 8 is backward compatible with Categories 7 and 6.
