RE: DIY Power Distributor


Nice job! And many thanks for the nice photos and taking the time to share the details.

I bought the fully assembled e-TP60 (from Chris VH, incidentally) about a year ago. It has the Furutech FPX-G outlets as standard, and provided a nice improvement right out of the box. But I couldn't leave well enough alone, and just had to tweak it. So after buying the right bit to get the center-pin Torx screws out, I rewired it with Neotech 12 gauge PCOCC copper wire. And I'm glad I decided to tweak it -- one of the factory wires to the center outlet pulled right out with my fingers. The screw had been tightened, but not nearly enough. Really surprised me getting a Furu product like that, but I guess any manufacturer has a flaw every now and then. Replaced the IEC with the Furu FI-06G (screw terminals rather than solder lugs), and added some Herbies baby booties to the bottom. Another step up in performance. And then I ran it on the Audiodharma cable cooker for about a week, and another step up. For the total outlay (including tweaks) of about $425, it serves very nicely as a power distribution box. Don't have any caps in mine, but may cogitate on that a bit. :)
