Good! Did you get the NCF Rhodium or the standard version?
I got the FL-06 NCF Rhodium with the set screws. Because of the set screws there is only one way to orientate it i.e., screws on top with ground on the 'higher' side. My original IEC inlet was orientated the other way (with ground on lower side). In my component one of the the wires had very little slack in it and it just managed to terminate it in the set screw housing.
But all was successful in the end.
"You have to leave something to your imagination"
Be aware that anything with a rhodium plating takes a good while to break in, at least IME. So the improvements you're hearing now will likely improve even further after you get 200+ hours on the inlet.
I'm using the gold plated FI-03's which have solder-only connections. I would have actually preferred the screw connections of the FI-06 to eliminate the solder, but the -06 was just a bit too large to fit in the existing chassis opening(s) without modification. The FI-03's have been a perfect match. At $15/$19 for the FI-03 (G/R) or $21/$27 for the FI-06 (G/R), this is one of the best bang-for-the-buck tweaks that I know of.
