    Difference in Duplex Receptacles

    One thing I am pondering, you probably heard that noisy neighbors contribute to a reduction of sound quality.

    I am thinking this applies, but more so in the neighborhood you live in. Some guys I know live in new neighborhoods where all the infrastructure feeding them is new; power, sewer and water.

    Rex and I live in older neighborhoods with newer homes, kinda like lipstick on the pig.

    We are in an older rural area. Lot size is 2-20 acres, most being 3-6. Though it is an older area there are a few new homes being built.

    In the greater area, say 5 mile radius there are hundreds of new homes being built. With the expansion all of the main transmission lines have been replaced.
    We would probably have 2-3 miles of older poles and wires from the new power to our property. We are fortunate that with the need for electric based on the buildings on our property they placed one of the large green transformer junction boxes in the center of the property.

    Re: Difference in Duplex Receptacles

    Yesterday my EE friend Phil was over to replace a bias relay in one of my amp.

    When we finished we tested the Leviton receptacles that I changed the ARC Fault breakers to standard QO breakers. The measurement between neutral and ground only went down to 700 milli-volts from 800.
    In moving the breakers in the panel as I had previously mentioned, the problem receptacles were now fed by breakers in the first position on the buss bar. Not sure if this was the reason.

    I will be receiving new receptacles this afternoon and will measure again to see if there is the change we expect.
