RE: Wiring outlet box

The state of the art Oyaide WPC-Z milled aluminum mounting bracket with carbon fiber faceplate depends on a very rigid coupling of the massive aluminum bracket via both mounting screws to an AC outlet box, and for both ears of the AC outlet ground strap to be rigidly affixed to the aluminum bracket with four screws, two screws for each ear. I would not try to insulate one of the ground strap ears, nor try to insulate one of the u-shaped slots of the aluminum bracket in search of better audio performance. I would have to read a credible report about the exact sonic betterment that such a method might provide before I attempted to experiment for myself. Perhaps Al's audio system was so far superior to mine, that even the most subtle differences were clearly audible to his ear, but that's just my 2 cents worth. YMMV
