About the PS Audio Power Port Premier
Everything we see and hear in our audio/video systems starts out as raw AC power. Improving the quality of your system's power can noticeably improve sound and picture quality — and a great place to start is at the wall outlet. PS Audio's original Power Port AC receptacle is a big improvement over standard-issue receptacles, but there's a new contender for the title of "world's best outlet."
PS' latest work of engineering art is the Power Port Premier, an audiophile-grade receptacle designed for owners of ultra-revealing music or home theater systems. This hand-crafted outlet outperforms the classic Power Port, benefiting from even more advanced materials and construction.
The Power Port Premier has contacts made of pure copper and beryllium. These contacts are first highly polished, then gold-plated, then finally hand polished to ensure maximum surface contact and conductivity. And the receptacle body is made of a moldable semi-crystalline material that tested superior even to the glass-filled high-temperature nylon used for the original Power Port.
The "PPP" is easy to install into any electrical box using the included hardware and simple instructions.

Overview: PS Audio's Power Port Premier is a custom-built, hand-crafted 15 to 20 amp AC receptacle of the highest quality. The internal contacts are machined out of pure copper, polished, then direct gold plated. The audiophile-grade Power Port Premier will make a major improvement in the performance of connected equipment and will provide long term reliability.
Construction: All of the metal in the Power Port Premier is machined from the highest purity non-ferrous material available (pure copper and beryllium), and then direct gold plated and polished. The body is cast out of a state-of-the-art dielectric material known as PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate) rather than the standard plastic or nylon.
Power Grip: The Power Port Premier features Power Grip, which is designed to provide a snug and secure connection for your components. Power plugs will no longer fall out of the receptacle due to loose sockets.
20-Amp Ready: The Power Port Premier is 20 amp ready, but can be used in any 15 amp circuit as well. Due to the construction of the Power Port Premier, you can run anything from a 10 amp to a 20 amp circuit and be perfectly legal and approved. You can even run a 15 amp circuit on the bottom plug and a 20 amp on the top plug or vice versa.
Note: Terminal Capacity - 15 Amp (14-10 AWG wire), 20 Amp (12-10 AWG wire)
Duplex Design: You can separate the top and bottom receptacle of each duplex Power Port Premier. You can even run a separate dedicated circuit to the top plug as isolated from the bottom plug. This allows the user maximum isolation within the system; using the top plug for digital, the bottom for analog for example.
UL Certified: The Power Port Premier is completely UL listed and is safe to place in your home.
Mounting: The Power Port Premier comes supplied with two mounting screws and can be installed in any single gang electrical box.
Wiring: The Power Port Premier uses the back-wire method for the hot and neutral terminals. The Power Port Premier is an isolated ground device. If installed into a metal junction box with no ground wire it must be grounded for safety.
Note: Do not use aluminum wires to connect the Power Port Premier.
