..and this will sound different/better than a 29 cent home depot face plate?
I have experimented with many hardware store sourced AC outlet wall plates over the years, including the popular non-magnetic stainless steel Cooper brand wall plate, and even as basic as these are, the differences are subtle but audible. I installed the Oyaide WPC-Z wall bracket system at the wall for my main audio system years ago, and the improvement was far from subtle, and many other audiophiles find profound benefit from its use. The key factor of the relatively inexpensive wall plate that shares a carbon fiber design concept with the much more expensive Oyaide, Furutech, and Acoustic Revive products is the benefit of energy dissipation, both electrical and mechanical. A direct comparison with even a robust solid aluminum AC outlet wall plate with the same dimensions showed that the carbon fiber version sounded superior, with notably improved clarity that was not subtle in their difference, to my ear. It's not my intention to change anyone's mind that may be skeptical, just to share my own findings in the forum.
Sharing your experiences are worthwhile and appreciated.
Years ago I bought an Oyaide duplex outlet from VH Audio after reading how some members here found them worthwhile.
The outlet was $100.00 a high price but in my case a huge value due to the improvement it provided.
Thank you Duster for taking the time to share.
