The $118 price is for 5 units @ $23.60 each, Tangram.
A wee bit conflicting Duster as in the description it does state 1 pcs however the heading does show 5 as you kindly advise, I will ask them to confirm, if I could purchase just one then I may try, Thankyou.
Try this gold-plated product, Tangram. The description indicates a copper base metal, but it's phosphor bronze.
I'm also quite certain that it's not cryo'd, but otherwise the particular eBay seller is dependable, with fairly quick shipping.
Yes you are correct Duster, it is for 5 units. Thanks for the link, I might just go for another oyaide, as I can be sure of what iam getting and like the R-0,Have you any experience with the oyaide R-1 ?
An Oyaide R1 AC outlet mounted on an Oyaide WPC-Z aluminum bracket with carbon fiber faceplate system is installed at the wall for my main audio system. The power cords within my power line distributor/power line conditioner array are terminated with Oyaide 004 Beryllium AC connectors. Another Oyaide R1 is installed in the power line distributor, along with an Oyaide R0. I also use Oyaide Black Mamba-Sigma V2 power cords with unplated beryllium copper contacts, and another Oyaide R0 in my computer workstation system, so I have much experience of the Oyaide Beryllium line-up, Tangram.
Thankyou Duster, I will give the R-1 ago for my int poweramp at some stage, here is one I have had in for quite a few months now preferring it to the Maestro outlet. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1021186293.html?
Maestro and Synergistic Research AC outlets among some others are cryo'd and cooked hardware store variety products.
Overpriced and not built like any Japanese, or even an inexpensive Taiwanese Furutech Clone such as these.
The item location seems to be in China, so most likely not cloned in Taiwan
Interesting but little-known trivia: Furutech is not associated with Furukawa, and is in fact a Taiwan company ;)

Forget about the shite often said about matters like "Furukawa" and "Pure Copper" by Chinese sellers, since it's often bogus information. I have that product you pointed to with a Vanguard sticker on the back of it, and it's the same product as the others in my possession. Just because the Furutech clones can be purchased from Chinese sellers does not mean Taiwan is not involved in the products.
I came across the Furutech clone when it first was introduced by Valab of Taiwan. It was an unplated version that's no longer available, which is too bad since it sounds better than the gold-plated version. I've been hesitant to try a rhodium-plated version, but someday I expect I will. I've done my research and observation and from what I can tell, the product was copied by a Taiwanese manufacturer based on a Furutech design, and although subsequent builds might be made in China, they are exactly like the original unplated product, and all other gold-plated Furutech clone AC outlets in my possession.
There are newer Furutech clones that are claimed to be beryllium copper rather than phosphor bronze, but I have my doubts. Perhaps Tangram will compare the one he owns with the phosphor bronze product I suggested.
