Jaguar’s Nanotec Contact Enhancer is a specially formulated liquid from Nanotec Systems in Japan, a world-class authority on nano particles for audio applications. Nanotec also does the nano formulations found in Furutech cables and other products.
The Contact Enhancer liquid is a formulation of nano-sized Silver and Gold particles, suspended in oil. Use the liquid to paint certain electrical connections in your system to reduce resistance and improve current flow at these points. Applying this liquid between two metal surfaces reduces what’s known as micro-arcing…microscopic arcing of electrical current between metal contacts. Less resistance in current transmission results in a sound with faster high-frequency transients, more immediacy and palpability. Harmonics and nuance become more dimensional and present.
- Before applying the enhancer it’s recommended to clean the metal surface with a contact cleaner, such as DeOxIt (which can also remove the contact enhancer).
- Use the liquid on speaker/amp terminals, fuse ends, tube pins, power cables, etc. Do not use on interconnects, phono jacks or other types of connectors where there's any possibility to bridge the contacts with the metals in the liquid (just give us a call if you're not sure.
- Use a very small amount. Just a tiny dot is enough for an application. One small bottle will probably last the average user for several years.
- There is a burn-in time. Run current through the connection for about 5-20hrs, during which time the sound can be relatively constricted but it will open up.
