The Furutech Ethereal FT-212（R）/（G）Banana Terminals
Banana-style connectors are becoming increasingly popular with audiophiles who prefer simplicity and ease-of-use over more purist approaches to speaker wire termination. But are banana plugs always the best option when it comes to sonic performance? Fortunately, audiophiles who choose the more convenient option no longer have to accept sonic compromises when they terminate their speaker cables with Furutech FT-212 Ethereal Banana Terminals.
Quite simply, the Furutech FT-212 Ethereal Banana Terminals will assist audiophiles, OEM cable manufacturers and do-it-yourself hobbyists achieve the highest levels of performance while offering both the ease of use and the ease of installation of banana terminals. In fact, the FT-212s don’t even require soldering!
Furutech’s legendary reputation for meticulous engineering, which focuses on constantly examining every part of the signal and power path, is reflected in the following features:
• Rhodium plated pure copper conductors for the FT-212(R), or 24K gold-plated Alpha pure copper conductors for the FT-212(G) - both models injected with POM resin
• Low weight, low mass design which offers audible improvements in sound quality
• Extremely insulated POM body with non-resonant SUS housing and non-magnetic stainless steel end ring
• Non-magnetic SUS set screw construction design
• Beautiful machining and finishes provide all cable projects with a highly professional and attractive end result
If you’ve resisted the use of banana terminals as part of a highly resolving audio/video system, then it’s time to compare the Furutech FT-212 Ethereal Banana Terminals to your preferred type of termination. The FT-212 proves that it’s possible to have both convenience and performance!
