Tokyo, Japan • Furutech Co., Ltd., manufacturer of analog and digital audio and video cable plus a wide range of
accessories, debuts ADL (Alpha Design Labs), quality products built to Furutech’s Pure Transmission standards
at surprisingly affordable prices.
The ADL GT40 24/96 USB DAC/Analog Recorder
The designed in-house GT40 –
stylish and compact – self-installs
speakers and headphones. It’s
designed for those with growing
computer hard drives that want
playback plus an easy way to
archive LPs or other analog
sources, a first in its product
The GT40 records at 16/44.1 or 24/96 using bidirectional USB and switchable Line or MM/MC Phono Stage
inputs, plus it features L/R analog outputs, a separate headphone amplifier, gold-plated Teflon-insulated RCA
jacks mounted in a high-quality aluminum chassis with a beautifully machined volume knob. CD Redbook 16/44.1
and especially 24/96 files reveal a vivid, captivating sound unheard of at this price… wired with Furutech’s
Formula 2 USB cable of course!
GT40 Sound
The GT40 brings High End sound to your system in the following way: Recall any visit to a fellow audio
enthusiast’s home. As music plays you can immediately hear if the sound “sets up” in an audiophile way: A sense
of spaciousness, imaging, out-of-the-speaker sound, open highs and an inviting midrange over tight bass. The
ADL GT40 brings Furutech’s signature sound of smooth, wideband, detailed clarity to desktop systems, especially
with high resolution files, but 16/44.1 also sounds much improved. Your first impression will be that you’ve never
experienced compute files sound so open!
GT40 Power Train
The heavily-shielded audiophile-grade GT40 features a trusted low-latency USB 2.0 ASIO audio driver that plays
and records up to 96kHz. It’s completely plug-and-play; the operating system installs the GT40 as soon as the
USB connection is made. While completely-USB powered devices might be convenient they simply don’t develop
the power required for high-resolution playback, so the GT40 sports an external supply to remedy the issue.
At just under six inches wide and two-and-a-quarter high the GT40 USB DAC/Analog Recorder is easy to place
and enjoy.
