As the Ultimate in sophistication, the Oyaide F1 IEC Connector was designed as Oyaide's flagship model, making zero compromise. The result is a sound that is powerful, dynamic and highly sophisticated. The F1 represents a major step forward in cutting edge technology having inherited and improved upon the advanced technologies of Oyaide's P/C series.
Oyaide's products are so simple to assemble. A detailed examination of the quality of each component is important as the characteristics of each component are harmonized to complete the F1 as the ultimate product.
The inner housing is made from Delrin for its superior mechanical strength, excellent vibration damping properties and noise reduction capability. The outer casing is made of aluminum with alumite treatment because the turbulence of magnetic field is easily generated around connectors. This leads to for superior noise reduction. This combination of materials actualizes high signal/noise ratio and attenuation vibration. The maximum 17mm cable in diameter is installable.
All screws, which were originally designed for M1/F1 and P/C series, are made of highly rigid stainless steel which is a non-magnetic substance. Moreover, once the cable is in place, it cannot be separated from the plug by a force less than 30kg, a significant safety feature.
The contacts are made from beryllium copper for its mechanical integrity and high conductivity, and they are heat treated to insure electromechanical integrity. The 1.0mm thick and 6.0mm wide contacts provide maximum contact area, have more than 8kg of holding power and reduce vibrations at the point of contact with no loss of signal transmission.
The plating of the F1 is a combination of platinum and palladium which were selected as a result of repeated listening tests. The inner platinum layer is 0.5 microns thick and the outer palladium layer is 0.3 microns thick.
To complete the F1, the manufacturing process is started from foundation coating. The material which was punched out as a part is hand polished piece by piece after machined barrel-polishing.
The powerful, dynamic, and highly-sophisticated sound provided by the M1/F1 is unmistakable and unforgettable for everyone.
