Construction & Materials
1. NCF (multi-material hybrid structure): NCF formulated nylon resin (Body).
2. Anti-vibration grooves: suppresses surface vibration.
3. Housing: Blasted and anodized aluminium alloy.
4. Air chamber: Internal air pressure suppresses vibration.
5. Vibration radiating NCF pillar.
6. Vibration suppression wall (NCF damping wall): elimination of resonance.

…we have our Vinno Rossi L2i-SE reference integrated amplifier/DAC/phono amp and an iFi Pro iDSD DSD512-capable DAC/Headphone Amp/ Preamp sharing a pair of AC receptacles with a two-receptacle Booster-Brace via the Clarus Concerto. This is a very high-resolution system. Cables are a combination of TARA Labs (XLR and Speaker cables), Kubala-Sosna Realization Reference USB cable, Synergistic Research Galileo SX reference power cable, Skogrand Beethoven Power Cable, and Focal Sopra 1 Monitor Speakers and dedicated stands. I had been using this combination for several months now, plugged into the same receptacles on the Concerto that I used when I installed the Booster-Brace, and was using DSD512 and DSD256 albums as sources. The DSD512 from NativeDSD.com is particularly astonishing, although the DSD256 from various sources is also remarkable.
The results of the Booster-Brace in this application was immediately apparent to me: Greater transparency, more nuanced detail, and a sense of improved solidity in the imaging of all recordings that I’ve heard.
This is a notable achievement. At the DSD256 and (especially) DSD512 levels, the performance wrought by the Booster-Braces cannot be gainsaid. I would not want to be without it.

Nano Crystal² Formula (NCF).
Incorporated into selected Furutech products, 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.
