When you buy the above receptacles you might also want the $150 wall cover plate!
Sorry can't find the link for the cover plates.

The month long fishing trip joke is pretty good, especially since anyone buying this thing is getting essentially the same treatment one way or another.

Thesby Snacoil from Gullible, MO

As an audiophile, I've been a big fan of worthless add-on's and cash sucking doohickys for many, many years. I have an innate trust in the goodness of the market to guide me in making proper product decisions, such as my Shakti Stones and green ink CD marker pens that I keep next to the Tice Clock. An entire industry has been built on the backs of guys like me, and I'm damned proud of that. Damned proud.

But now I'm even more happy because the Wattgate has raised my audiophile experience to a whole new level of authority and acumen. After spending over $2,000 on new outlets, the difference I hear is nothing short of stunning and astonishing. Music sounds more like music. Quiet sounds more like quiet. The current flows so much more efficiently with these new outlets. Do they provide less resistance, less capacitance, and less inductance than my old outlets? No - but that is not the point. The point is that they sound SO MUCH BETTER.

Yes, these are heady times we live in. I'm so happy to have more stuff that greatly enhances the quality of our lives together. I just wish that all of you could HEAR what these outlets sound like.

I like this one:


I am rating the Wattgate 381 so low because I have conflicting opinions on it. Working as an electronics technician on high end business aircraft we needed a receptacle capable of filtering out the considerable noise found on the power distribution systes of aircraft. After installing these outlets we found that any laptop plugged into it had an extra terrabyte of hard disk space and ran 287.6% faster. Initial testing showed that on a flight from Wichita, Ks to Seattle, Wa our cruising speed inscreased by 80 knots and fuel consumption was reduced by an astounding 25%. However I write this review from a holding cell because being so impressed with the Wattgate 381's performance I decided to take one home to try. Once installed though my home theatre system ran with unparalleled clarity and performance I never could have dreamed of, the Wattgate notified the authorities that it had been stolen and the police showed up at my door within 45 minutes. I tried to explain that I merely borrowed the outlet to test at home before purchasing one, but it was to no avail. I now have no job, my wife has filed for divorce and after the Wattgate 381 testifies in open court I will have a criminal record.

Hi Pano,
glad to see you here again. Let the folks sing around about your tip. I am sure such upgrades bring more than cables because they handle about the most important raw material in Audio ... The Current in the start of a chain. I myself made a very big step just in changing the powersupply of an amp...

Please look in your PM box - you have got a message

Best wishes
M.K.

I was skeptical, but the results when combined with a "Mountain Three Wolf Moon Short Sleeve Tee" were nothing short of amazing. I installed the duplex socket in the wall of my trailer, replacing the socket with the broken cover and charred plastic. When I plugged in the 27" TV, suddenly the picture seemed to fill the whole wall. When I plugged in the Venturer home theater system and played the "Fifth Element", Milla Jovovich came out of the TV and made love to me. I highly recommend both the Wattgate 381 Audio Grade Duplex Socket and The Mountain Three Wolf Moon Short Sleeve Tee.
