RE: Big +1 on the Furutech IEC inlets

For solid state gear, I find Furutech's gold plated phosphor bronze and pure copper IEC inlets provide a more natural sounding presentation vs. their rhodium plated counterparts, with a major sonic improvement vs. a typical nickel plated brass IEC inlet. However, for tube gear the rhodium plated models may be more appropriate since they present a leaner characteristic and a more forward presence.

The Oyaide Inlet R features phosphor bronze blades, and after hand polishing, is plated by the same platinum + palladium plating scheme as the Oyaide Beryllium Line AC products (R1 and 004). I find the sonic signature falls somewhere between the gold and rhodium version Furutech IEC inlets, and the platinum + palladium plated Oyaide Inlet R provides good synergy with the platinum + palladium plated Oyaide C-004 Beryllium IEC connector, as well as the SOTA Furutech FI-50 Gold IEC connector.
