What were the results? Thanks!
If tried the Defender with a P10 and that and the NCF with a P15.
The Defender I have left with the P10. It makes a subtle “smoothing” improvement with high frequency. No real downside and when removed. . . you want to put it back.
Haven’t tried the NCF in the P10 because it sounds so good with the P15 I don’t want to move it. Just strips away a subtle veil that hung over the sound that was not noticeable before, but once gone you don’t want it back.
Both these products were found worthy of my systems.
Thank you for the report. Of the two, would you be able to choose a favorite?
Yes. . . for my main system the NCF. It’s a close call, but the Defender just seemed to add a tiny dash of old school romance and thus was just that tiny bit less transparent overall. Might be just the ticket for another system.
I have The NCF plugged into an NCF power distributor. It makes a positive contribution to the sound.
I’m using and NFC in my Dectet which is fed by an NCF outlet and after a week I’m coming to the conclusion that once its in your system you wont want to take it out. I tried and still have a Defender which I use to protect the line my subs are on. The defender does seem to roll the highs just ever so slightly, I compared it to the Isotek plug in unit first and I still have the Isotek in an unused outlet in the duplex to protect my amp which I run direct to the Furutech Ncf outlet.
If the Clearline had surge protection I would most likely have 3 .
