Furutech FI-50 NCF (R) vs FI-28 (R) Differences?

I would appreciate experiences on the comparison between FI-50 NCF (R) and FI-28 (R). Is there a noticeable or significant difference between the two plugs. I am aware the FI-50 NCF (R) is the top-of-the-line and supposed to be very good. However, they cost much more than the FI-28. Does the additional cost translate to a noticeable or worthwhile difference, or the difference is subtle or marginal at best?

I would appreciate any experiences on this matter. The wire that will be used on the plugs both AC connector and IEC would be FP-TCS31.



@salectric Very interesting ...

Have you triyed FI-46 NCF (gold plated) ?

Which cables are you using the connectors on?

I am using FI-46 NCF on both Furutech TCS31 and Furutech 762 with relatively good results.

However, sometimes i wish i have a little bit more transparency and instrument separation ( as Ramm Amadeus 5 MK2 is providing ) that’s why I ask ...


i haven’t tried the FI-46.  Most of my connector trials were with Audio Note ISIS mains cable but I also used Ocellia Silver Reference cable.


Just to follow up on my earlier post, I have since then tried using ETI Legato Gold for both IEC and AC plug.  That had too much of a gold coloration (too warm and slightly soft and rolled off in the treble).  I also tried the ETI Legato Rhodium IEC but it is too lean in the bass for my tastes as well as slightly too bright.  For me the combination of Legato Gold IEC and FI-11M Copper AC is just right.  I now use that combination on ISIS cable for all of my gear.
