Well Made & Sturdy Product
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This receptacle is a very sturdy "overbuilt" product, that is a good complement to an expensive sound or home theater system (after all, what's a $150 receptacle when you've just spent a small fortune on amps, receivers, tv and speakers?) In my opinion, most AudioQuest products are overpriced and over-hyped (sadly, Crutchfield advisors frequently seem to aid and abet them in this). I am an audio engineer and musician with perfect pitch. I can assure you that there is no sonic difference in using this receptacle rather than one you can buy at another retailer for $30. The electrons do not know the difference. This plug is more robustly made, grips the plug prongs very well, will likely last longer, and, it sports a special "single outlet look" that, while re-producible with cheaper products, advertises itself as being for a dedicated purpose.
Pros: Quality of construction
Cons: Overpriced and over-hyped
