The Roxy features a 37-strand silver-plated OFC conductor for each of live and neutral plus a 37-strand OFC earth core. Like the Empire, it includes five distinct layers of insulation and protection. An audio-grade polyethylene dielectric surrounds each of the three conductors, and the three are then encased in all-natural materials: a cotton inner filler, wrapped in a paper barrier layer, crafted to ensure none of the midrange ‘glare’ that can be all too common in many of the more affordable audiophile cables. Finally, the Roxy is finished with an ultra-flexible outer sheath in lead-free, audio-grade PVC and a tough, nylon yarn braid outer sleeve.
In both the Empire and the Roxy, all metal parts are treated with Furutech’s trademark two-stage ‘Alpha’ cryogenic and demagnetization process, designed to render all metals stress-free, stable and highly electrically conductive – and enabling that all-important Furutech goal of “pure transmission”.
