The Oyaide SWO-XXX receptacle / outlet offers extra thick (1.5 micron) 24K Gold plating with Palladium plated finish.
The importance of high quality power supply connections is now widely accepted. Many enthusiasts install dedicated power lines for their hi-fi systems and no longer question the importance of the quality of the receptacle fitted to the wall. Conventional hospital grade connectors can improve the strength of the mechanical connection, but they are far from ideal for realizing the best sound quality.
The Oyaide objective was to develop receptacles whose sole purpose was to deliver the highest sound quality possible. Every part has been designed with this in mind. Extensive research into the effects of plating methods has yielded three equally valid but different types of sound for you to choose from. The entire series is non-magnetic to avoid any disturbance from magnetic fields.
Highly (twice) polished deoxidized phosphor bronze for the most secure contact.
24 Karat plated brass fittings for strength and durability
Body / Insulator:
Glass filled nylon for high rigidity and resonance control
