Is there any link or tutorial on how to do it?Hallo, I have recently replaced plugs on my non-NCF Furutech Nanoflux power cable with the latest NCF Fi50, so I thought I could share my impressions here as I benefited so much by reading about people's experience earlier on in this thread here. My experience has been very positive. I am surprised with the improvement on installing the NCF plugs versus the non-NCF plugs (admittedly, very old non-NCF plugs, first version of those). I also have an untouched NCF Nanoflux, and this is still a superior cable, but the non-NCF Nanoflux with NCF plugs sounds better to my ear than the original non-NCF Nanoflux. I would say it was totally worth the investment (an opinion which may differ from those expressed earlier in this thread). In comparison to the original non-NCF Nanoflux, the non-NCF Nanoflux cable with NCF Fi50s offers improved resolution (but not as good as in the original NCF cable), a slightly improved soundstage (still not as good as that offered by the original NCF cable) and, most importantly, improved clarity: music impresses more with natural flow, details on the stage. Overall, for me it was worth the investment. But of course, if you were to buy a new non-NCF Nanoflux cable for the price it cost when it was released on the market or the NCF cable for the price it is offered at now, I would definitely choose the NCF Nanoflux. However, when somebody has a very old non-NCF Nanoflux that is worth so much less on the second-hand market, the addition of the NCF plugs could really be worth it. And one more thing: if somebody wants to replace plugs, especially the more upmarket Furutech cables, it is important to know how to do it. Mine were replaced by a Polish forum user who knows how to do it. He is actually a kind of celebrity on Polish forums as the person who knows about Furutech plugs
I know Furutech posted videos on youtube on how to do it and it seems there was nothing special to it.
