Default High quality IEC chassis connector

I'm looking for some high quality power input connectors for my Aleph 2's. Something equaling the quality of the Wattgate plugs.
Does anyone know where to get something like that? Apreciate any help.
Svein

Try PartExpress, they carry both WattGate and Marinco IEC320 plugs. I sometimes find the connectors on Ebay but they are few and far between. http://www.partsexpress.com/[/URL]

Thanks, I know there are several options on plugs, but for the chassis part I've only been able to find cheap stuff. Same about the wall plug(european).

Have you checked www.elfa.se ? They have a dozen different types, rather good, some of them with built-in fuses.

Search for "apparatintag".

Yes I know Elfa, it's my main parts supplier. What I'm looking for is something that matches this http://www.welbornelabs.com/wattgate.htm

I suspect that your search is in vane.

I think the market in Europe is minimal for this special 230 volt connector.

Never thought of a blue IEC connector, heavy industrial use?

If you really want to help SvErD out, you must look for 230 V connector, not 110/120 volt.

Sorry for not beeing clear/accurate enough about what I need. I'm looking for the chassis connector, the one that is installed in the amp. The ultimate would have been made from bakelite with gold plated copper connectors. All I can find is the cheap plastic/cromed steel stuff below, or variant of it with switch, fuse etc.

Aaahh, I get it now. You are looking for and IEC350/320 jack. I looked through all my references and was unable to come up with what you described above (bakelite/gold plated contacts). The best source I found with the most variety of different jacks is NEWARK. The offer a very extensive selection, but I prefer Schurter products, they seem to be better built and most are rated for euro power.
