This time to merge with Furutech NCF was for Nordost QBASE-Mark II concept series filter-distributor QB8. Elegant design hush acquired a wide range of adherents in the audiophile world. But nothing could be so good, not try to get even better.
Ob8 izgatavots ļoti rūpīgi un pirmajā brīdī bija pat žēl to visu izjaukt.
Ob8 made very carefully and at the first moment, it even regretted to start it to dismantle.
This time to change the original Schuko socket to Furutech FI-E30 (R) NCF was not difficult. No need to drill, to rasp or to saw. The only part of an elegant appearance had to donate due to a decorative plate, which simultaneously executes the socket fixing feature, do not fit in any way. It was necessary only longer screws for new socket fixing. Although filter got a little robust look, but it was not so bad.
A small stone to QB8 producers garden- screws could be made of stainless (non-magnetic) steel. In previous Nordost Thor filter, such screws have been applied. Of course in this upgrade process to non-magnetic screws, nuts and washers were applied.
Unfortunately this time the IEC socket could not change, because without the help of skilled miller politely it was not possible- new Furutech FI-06 )R) NCF is too big for this inlet place on filter body
But, even without changing of the IEC inlet the result is very convincing- sound became much more transparent, more three-dimensional and timbral richer.
