FS: Furutech GTX-D AC Receptacles

Recommended Posts

Item: Furutech GTX-D AC Receptacles
Location: Melbourne
Price: $150 each
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: NLR/Downsizing
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash (Can post)
Extra Info:

 

Up for sale are Furutech GTX-D AC Receptacles in both rhodium-plated & gold-plated versions.

 

Made from pure copper, which is then direct-plated with either rhodium or gold, these are probably the best receptacles currently available.

 

Unlike most receptacles, their special construction means these do not chew up the blades of AC plugs.

 

All outlets have been conditioned on an Audiodharma Cable Cooker.

 

Multiples of each type available.

 

NOTE: These are USA-style receptacles that accept USA-style plugs.
 

Local pickup preferred, can ship at buyer's expense.

These are illegal to install in a permanent building Aus. Only rated to 125v. Not sure in the legalities of selling.

How many of each of these do you have available?

I am using the latest NCF versions to great effect in my Audio Replas powerblock.

All the rhodium units appear to be spoken for at this stage however interested parties should feel free to PM me if they're interested in those & I can put them as backups in case the sales fall through.

 

I still have a number of the gold versions available in the meantime.

 

I also have a thread for the matching Furutech FI-50M AC plugs that will hopefully appear shortly.

These are plainly illegal to instal in Australia. I really do not know why these have been allowed to be posted up here.

They could be used after a step down transformer in a portable setup but even then they wouldn't meet Aus standards as they have not been certified.

Good luck if you have to make a claim. 

They are illegal. They haven't been through our testing procedures and the different plug type is not approved. (they no doubt are better but the paperwork doesn't approve them) 

As a licenced electrician I would never install them for a client.

My understanding of the regs in Australia is that it is only forbidden to sell these if you are a company (but not an individual)

I'd be extremely surprised if they have insured you knowing about this.

 

Like every other insurer, your policy excludes:

 

Quote

loss, damage, injury or death arising from faulty design or workmanship

 

Non-faulty design being products specified which comply with our electrical code

Non-faulty workmanship being a qualified installer who has followed the relevant code/rules.    (ie. any sparky who might have signed this off, has technically done "poor work").

 

 

FWIW - I don't think the risk of you having an issue, or being caught out, is particularly high.....   but

. They are not compliant. You are kidding yourself. Stop spreading dangerous misinformation. A licenced electrician would never install them and risk a heavy fine and or lose their licence.

Other than that, only the beyerdynamic logo on top of the headband shows some wear. Comes with included carry case, original 9ft cable and original packaging.
