RE: Anybody have any experience with Furutech FT-111 RCA's?

The FT-111's came in today. The fit/finish, workmanship, and overall quality are top notch, as is the norm for Furutech. Jewelry-like, quite honestly. However, some further clarification on "low mass" is needed, as these are the heaviest RCA's I've ever held in my hand. One distributor's site lists them as "low mass," so after reading that I'm thinking Eichmann Bullet or a KLEI Harmony kind of low mass. Furutech's site advertises them as "low metal mass." Guess it depends on which metal is being referred to. If you take the outer barrel and collet off, the remainder is in fact quite light and low mass, and perhaps that's what Furutech is referring to -- the metal that's actually in or part of the signal path.

In any event, the only thing that matters is the resulting sound, and I still very much like the screw termination which eliminates the solder. After removing the outer barrel the internals are easy to get to as well, so these should be no problem to work with. I'll report back once I get a pair of cables built up. Going to try some cotton insulation for the positive conductor which may turn out extremely cool....or may be a disaster waiting to happen. :)
