Default Looking for pure copper IEC jack

I found some from DIY Gene. I'm hoping to find a supplier stateside if possible for around the same pricing.

Appreciate any help in sourcing.

This board rocks.

Do a search on Google for a "Female IEC Inlet"

The first page alone will offer several places. You should be able to find what you want. Solder or screw connections, copper, gold plated, rhodium plated, 15 amp, 20 amp, etc

Good luck!

Regards//Keith

I doubt very much that you'll find one. Copper is too soft and not particular safe.

Good point. As far as I know. I'll have to check. The ones made by Furutech and Wattgate are I'm sure.

Wouldn't you want some kind of plating to resist corrosion and oxidation?

Thanks Dekky! That site is the mother load. I just bought a bunch of stuff from DIY Gene on eBay and its obvious he gets all his stuff from this site and just marks it up. I paid almost $100US above what they items are listed for on this site.

How in the world did you find it?

Regarding the IEC. I was very skeptical when a friend announced I should try it. I did an A/B between it and a regular IEC expecting nothing but a marketing ploy. I was actually pissed at how much of a difference there is.

I cannot remember how I found them but I think on some forum - they are kings. Johnny who runs the business is very reliable. Shipping is accurate and very reasonable. I bought a shitload of them. Pre-amp kit that ended being a headphone amp, soft start boards, relay input boards, CD rom controllers, chasis, DACs you name it.

Everything is awsome quality and CHEAP as ships man!
