    Please Recommend a Duplex Receptacle

    New construction for my listening room should start in 3 weeks or so. Would like to install some quality receptacles that don't break the bank. I would need about 8 to 10 receptacles so I would like to keep it around the $50.00 each amount. I would love to have the Furutech GTX-D (G) Duplex Copper Receptacles but that would run into a small fortune.

    Re: Please Recommend a Duplex Receptacle

    I saw this link. They look just like some $195 receptacles. The price isn't too high, but I have no knowledge about the vendor.

    Rhodium is currently selling at over $2000/ounce. Makes me skeptical of $21.85 before coupon.

    Paul,

    All outlets are not created equal. Neither is their intended use. Are some of your planned outlets used for more critical applications? Maybe splurge for a couple where the quality might be more important. Others can be swapped out later if you want.

    Re: Please Recommend a Duplex Receptacle

    Perhaps you can swing a few Furutech receptacles for your stereo equipment. I think it would be well worth the added expense as the power coming into that room is what you'll be listening to.

    I'm using the Furutech/GTX-D NCF(R) supplied power via a 100A subpanel with four 20A twisted pair wiring for each audio circuit with the neutral and hot wires wrapped on 2" centers and the ground wire placed parallel in PVC conduit. A white paper presented at the 2010 AES 129th Convention shows this method has the lowest ground voltage induction tested.

    That’s a great suggestion. I might splurge for 3 of the better outlets. One for each of my PS Audio BHK Mono’s that will be plugged directly into the outlets and one for my Shunyata Denali v2 that will have some of my source and DAC equipment. The rest will be Hubble outlets for the rest of my equipment.

    The Hubbell 5362's are very good outlets if you don't want to splurge on the "big buck" outlets for all ten. Pass & Seymour/Legrand also makes very similar outlet. I seem to remember at some point Caelin making the same recommendation for high quality value outlets.

    Re: Please Recommend a Duplex Receptacle

    My favorites of what I've tried:

    1) Hubbell 5362 cryo'd and cooked from Take 5 Audio (ironically the cheapest; also the basis for the Shunyata SR-Z1)
    2) Audioquest Edison - silver plated

    On the fence about:
    3) Furutech GTX-D (G) - (In one system I like them (older stock); in my simpler system I tried them twice (2 different outlets) and couldn't believe how veiled they were; the resolution was terrible for delicate sounds)

    Duplexes I didn't like:
    4) Audience Hidden Treasure - rhodium plated, made by Cardas (if you like fast and dynamic, I've never heard anything like this duplex; it wowed me but I couldn't get past the midrange which I found too lean
    5) Furutech GTX-D (R) - like the Audience, rhodium plated and I had the same perception of sound.


    I'd love to try the Shunyata Copperconn, however, they're $300 or more.

    I saw the cryo'd Hubbell's on Take 5 Canada about an hour ago for $39.95 Canadian so about $30.

    I installed the aq Edison and had favorable results compared to psaudio (for about three times the price).

    Ground Loops: The Rest of the Story
    Bill Whitlock, AES Fellow and Jamie Fox, P.E.
    This paper was presented at the AES 129th Convention, 4-7 November 2010, San Francisco, CA, USA

    ABSTRACT
    The mechanisms that enable so-called ground loops to cause well-known hum, buzz, and other audio system
    noise problems are well known. But what causes power-line related currents to flow in signal cables in the first
    place? This paper explains how magnetic induction in ordinary premises AC wiring creates the small voltage
    differences normally found among system ground connections, even if “isolated” or “technical” grounding is
    used. The theoretical basis is explored, experimental data shown, and an actual case history related. Little
    has been written about this “elephant in the room” topic in engineering literature and apparently none in the
    context of audio or video systems.It is shown that simply twisting L-N pairs in the premises wiring can
    profoundly reduce system noise problems.

    Re: Please Recommend a Duplex Receptacle

    So I have it narrowed it down to the 20A Audioquest NRG Edison and the Shunyata CopperConn outlets. I’ll start with 3 for my 2 Channel system. One for each amp and one to plug in my Denali 6000s V2. The rest of the outlets will be Hubbell’s.

    Has anyone compared the Edison and the CopperConn?

    Hello

    My vote is the Copper Conn for the Denali unless you can $ swing 3 and consider a Shunyata power cable for the Denali when you can.

    Thanks....It looks like the CopperConn is the way to go. I do have the Delta NR feeding the Denali.

    I have a couple of shunyata zr71 I’ll sell you. I used Hubble hospital grade and put the Furitech covers on them in my room. The folks at Shunyata said the hubble’s are very good.

    Thanks Bob but I decided to go with the Shunyata CopperConn’s and cryo’d Hubbell outlets.

    Never ever cryo a receptacle or breaker, some of the pieces & parts can't tolerate such a low temperature and it will invalidate the required 'UL' rating.

    Re: Please Recommend a Duplex Receptacle

    I am interested to have dedicated lines in my listening room, too. I may consider Shunyata, Cardas, Furutech duplex. What wire and guage size would you recommend to run from the duplex to the main breaker panel (approximately 30 ft)?

    If permitted by local laws, I would use one step oversized Southwire brand Romex®.

    Re: Please Recommend a Duplex Receptacle

    Southwire brand Romex® is the real deal, it's not a generic NM-B (Non- metallic) copy. The three conductors are held in correct alignment.
    Bill Whitlock of Jensen Transformers (retired) tested it,and it worked great. There was another test of generic and it didn't.
    Plus it's what Hone Depot and Lowe's sells.

    Re: Please Recommend a Duplex Receptacle

    Hi gang, semi-new guy here. (I joined some years ago, but haven't posted much.)

    Poignant thread...

    I recently ran a direct line from the panel to my listening room - Southwire 12/3 MC cable and used the better Leviton "industrial heavy duty" 20A outlets - nice, firm grip with a positive "click-in-place" feel when inserting plugs. A very big improvement for my system power - noise floor is significantly lowered and there's a superb enhancement in low-level system resolution. My ears are happy!

    I'm considering next the inevitable outlet upgrade, and budget suggests the Sunyata SR-Z1 will be the best option for now. Anybody have experience with these? I know they're the "entry level" sockets from Shunyata, but at $100/ea, they fit the budget better than the other upgrades available. Any feedback is appreciated - thanks!

    'Don' those better Leviton "industrial heavy duty" 20A outlets, should be more than adequate for decades.

    I've been using mine for about 9-10 years now. Unreserved recommendation. Made an notable and audible improvement; your best bet in this price range. Just as importantly, they are also durable with respect to use. Give 'em about 2 days to burn in.

    At some point when the budget allows, I'll upgrade to the new CopperCONN outlet.

    I appreciate the responses, gents, particularly the long-term use testimonials. These will definitely be on the radar when the motivation strikes.

    Has anyone compared the Edison and the CopperConn?
    I got the NRG Edison and have been happy with it (reasonably priced, high quality, grips like a vise). Installed on a 20 amp dedicated circuit. Did not do a home comparison. I went this way in part to complement my choice of an AudioQuest Niagara 5000 conditioner and Hurricane PCs.

    I compared the Edison and the PSAudio’s in the same room, same circuits, same system, and there was no comparison - the PSAudio’s are for sale. Different price points, but no sonic comparison.

    I put "hospital grade" 20 amp outlets on the separate circuit for my amps. Bronze (or brass most likely), for sure, the hospital grade makes sure of good connections.
