Improved soundstage and bass response

I installed this AC outlet for a home theater set-up, but have not yet installed the rest of the theater components. Instead, I hooked a CAL DAC and a Knight integrated tube amp to test any audible improvements. After listening to a couple albums I noticed a broader soundstage that contributed to the over all instrument placement -- as well as a deeper/more articulate bass response, especially for a tube amp of this era. The build quality is hospital grade and even heavy plugs fit very snug.

Easy affordable tweak

I have this outlet run direct to the BRKR box and is the only outlet on a dedicated Home Theater circuit. These are easy to install and I was able to notice that the floor noise lowered as a result. The outlet itself is built like a tank and bullet proof. It will securely hold your power snakes in place and not allow them to slip free. If you are lookning to tweak in your system, power is some thing you should strongly consider. Be it an AC line conditioner, power cables or this outlet. I am very happy with it and I will NEVER own or set up a system with out one again. And to back up what one of the other reviewers stated, PS Audio is a top notch company that produces top quality reference products and stand they behind what they MFG.

HIGHLY EFFECTIVE UPGRADE

Hello, I bought one of these back in Richmond, VA. in 2002 directly from PS Audio for the standard price of $49.99. They are a very pleasant company to deal with. I had never done something like this before, so I was a little concerned about wiring it in. It was extremely simple. Amen !! The first step, as it always should be when wiring in new receptacles, was to turn off the circuit in the breaker box for that outlet and then to verify that it was indeed out. Once verified as no longer being operational, I stretched the wires as much as possible, cut off the old and highly oxidized copper wire ends, stripped about 3/8 off the insulation, and sanded the wire with 220 grit sandpaper all around it and in all directions to make sure that it was fully clear of any remaining oxidation, chemicals from the insulation, etc. I did the same with the ground wire too. I also labeled which wire went where; i.e. this one goes to the upper left terminal, this one goes to the lower right terminal, etc. Once wired, I slowly and gently pushed it all back into the junction box and put the cover back on. Now for the test ... turning on the power again. There was no smoke, smells, or fire ... thank God ... and all of the other lights on that circuit still worked just fine. Cool. Time to plug the components into the Power Port. Talk about a tight grip on the plugs ... it is physically difficult in a good way though to plug them into the PP as it grips the plugs like a vice. Trying to remove them is just as hard, but again for a good reason as the contact they make by gripping the plugs so tightly is amazing. So is the immediately and hugely noticeable improvement in the sound. It was as if there was a vacuum of silence in front of me that felt like it was pulling the breath out of my lungs. It was like a giant, gaping vacuum was in front of me that drew me into the stage and the music like never before, or since for that matter. It literally made such a huge difference improvement in the sound that it was like I had replaced the preamp with a much better and quieter one. The sustain and decay of notes, cymbal crashes in particular, just kept going and floated off into space. It offered so much clarity and depth and quietness to the system, music, and magnified the enjoyment of listening many times over in comparison to not having it. It was instantly impressive. Even my father and wife said so as we had just listened to the same few songs at the same volume level before hooking it up. The air and space around the musicians was made much clearer and defined and the imaging improved greatly as we could now more easily discern not only where each person was at, but how he or she was turned or facing and how the instrument being played was oriented. We could listen at much lower levels ... deep into the late evening ... and hear so much more that we couldnt hear at all before, or if we could, not without much more haze and hash to it and sounding muffled and fuzzy due to the noise on the line. I would never have an audio or a video/home theater system without a PS Audio Power Port. They really do make that much of an immediate improvement. Upgrading interconnects or speaker cables has never made that big of an improvement for me at least. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Great Audio/Video Accessory

Great way to upgrade your power outlets for all areas where audio or video equipment is connected to AC voltage. Compliments and works well with component style power conditioners and backups. Highly recommended. Also recommended by Stereophile magazine.
