It has excellent specs and there is no loss of signal or diminishment of gain. It is a well built piece and I highly recommend this adapter.
For those who are looking to upgrade all their audio components, the Furutech headphone plug adapter provides a nice upgrade for those who want something more than the usual $1.99 gold-plated adapter.
The housing material is listed as "SUS 304" = Steel Used Stainless grade 304 which used to be called 18/8 due to the fact that it is composed of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. The silver housing is very corrosion resistant and looks great when plugged into a silver or black unit.
Some important points: The F 63 adapter comes in a few flavors. The F 63-S(G) vs F 63-(G) = The (G) version is usually only sold in Japan and the adapter's female receptacle is recessed approx 50mm. The F 63-S(G) vs F 63-S(R) = (G) Gold plated and (R) Rhodium plated.
I only supply this extra info in case one decides to brave ordering one of these from Japan. Moon-audio sells the F 63-S(G), the most versatile model, for a very reasonable price.
The only headphone jack on the DAC I chose is the standard size. Thus, being the audiophile that I am, I wanted a "high end" adapter.
This product is exactly that! It is made solidly, has a low profile, and I seriously doubt I would hear a difference in having the cable re-configured. If you want a high end adapter, this is the one to buy.
