Furutech has always about been true transmission and Gotham high purity copper retain its signature trait of openness and wide soundstage – this combination is both highly accurate, engaging and exceptionally clean. Let any colouration of sound using any tinge of silver/rhodium happens at the interconnects, this is almost as close as using a pure OFC power cable as bare as possible, with Furutech FI 28 plugs made from their famed and patented α (Alpha) pure copper with 24k gold plating. There are many claims of pure copper used in AC and IEC plugs, but there are even more using beryllium copper or phosphor bronze which are copper with impurities added. Furutech is definitely one of the only few which can be trusted in guaranteeing the purity of the copper used in the plugs.
Furutech has a technology in their plugs up their sleeve with the proprietary Floating Field Damper. Lifting these from Furutech product page:
- The Floating Field Damper completely solves “the biggest problem you never realized you had” by star grounding the parts in which floating magnetic fields are created by the flow of current. Our precisely engineered, sprung metal bridge in the connector body ties the various parts together and shunts the potential to the ground, preventing the flow of noise and significantly reducing distortion for an ultra-clean and stable power transfer.
Each conductor of Gotham 85055 cable is 5.50mm2, which translates to 11 AWG. They are definitely hefty and solid as a gauge size use for power application, capable of delivering up to 4000 Watt of power and 33 Ampere of current. There likely is no scenario where Gotham 85055 power cable cannot be used to power any hifi audio equipment. The super high purity of copper used in Gotham has always been a strong component which really distinguishes them from other brands. Together with their proprietary emphasis of more than 1 layer of shielding from similar grade of copper strands, Gotham 85055 performs in high regards and standards without really breaking the bank like other high-end power cables too.

The immense sense of space opens up to a much bigger listening sphere. The improved airiness does not thin out any upper midrange, but the transparency only makes them sparkles. On longer listening upon breaking in after around 20 hours, the sounds become so refined and natural the nuances are just easily picked up without realisation.
Meticulously hand sleeved with brown-black PET and PP cotton for both strength and flexibility to match the sophistication of the greenish hue body of Furutech FI-28, each cable is hand-crafted in Singapore with highest quality and aesthetic in mind. Sleeve colour change can be requested at no additional cost subjected to availability. All parts used in STAR SERIES are guaranteed to be truly authentic.
