I just happened to be downstairs in the parking garage and there is a utility guy with boxes and boxes of meters. He is swapping out the entire pile of individual electric meters.
I went out. Got home and (had to restart the PS Audio P600, the Furman REF 20I restarts itself after power outage.)
So my stereo sound better.
Maybe it is my imagination.. LOL
But seems to have better 'snap' detail.
All thos nice new clean and tight connections, why wouldn't you expect things to sound better? There could have been all sorts of loose noise generating connections which have all been replaced by clean tight connections. Sound good to me. Time to get a can of M.G. Chemicals 801B and treat all your electrical contacts. well worth your time and money. Highly recommended.
..which only happens a few times a year.
..if it's lucky and behaves itself in my driveway.
I have no problem with you hearing improvement. New switches and retightening the copper wires to it help with conductivity.
...and asked him to put silver grease on the meter's contact points prior to installing yours.
Who knows? It could be your imagination, or given that any contact points are subject to oxidation, maybe it really does sound better with a fresh meter.
Either way, I'm just glad it doesn't sound any worse. Just think of how good it's going to sound once your new meter breaks in! [insert sarcastic smiley thing here]
Sometimes things get done by temp guys, who might be willing to do something not according to the books.
This guy mentioned he usually did high voltage tower work. But things were kind of slow this week for that stuff. So he volunteered to install meters.
He did not seem like the type crazy crap would fly.
I would guess a guy working high voltage has to BE by the book or be dead.
Agreed. I did an Air Force career. While I like innovating and thinking differently, I always wanted the guys doing munitions maintenance and working with nukes to absolutely love routine and be the least imaginative people in the world. They need to have the mentality, "Let's always do this exactly the same way."
Thanks for your service Lee and Fantja. I was AF PMEL 1980 to 1989.
fellow Air Force guy here. Thank You! for your service.
I didn't really think he'd allow that. I know if it was my job, I wouldn't!
