There is no way that changing the outlet covers will make any difference at all...so to satisfy my curiosity, I bought 3 to accommodate my system. The left Vandersteen 5A is plugged into the left most outlet.... I could not believe what a dramatic change for the better ...remember that only the bass amp is driven by the power cord..how can the mids and highs be changed??...but absolutely yes. OK...the right speaker is plugged into the right most outlet, as is my Ayre power amplifier...a change, but a much smaller change than the left outlet. The last plug is on another wall - that plug is for the Ayre preamp, and Ayre Universal silver disc player... a difference again for the better. What I hear is a major reduction in "sand"... everything is distinct from its instrumental neighbor...I don't hear any difference in timbre...no increase in highs or lows, but a refinement of all frequencies. and the speed of all the frequencies, the stopping and starting is much more instant. Little cymbal taps, words, everything is better. Lows don't bleed into the mids, they are reproduced with far less effort. The greatest difference is from the phonograph (Ortofon Winfeld cartridge)...the soundstage became huge. As I was listening my wife came in from the heirdresser (I can't believe what they charge). As she walked into the house, she said "did you buy new speakers?". It is that different. I have no idea why this works, but it does in my system.

no covers...the old sonic signature. I even put a load of BluTac behind those faceplates about a year ago with no change for better or worse...so I left the stuff in place.

Do we need to talk about fuses?

I had an epiphany similar to yours when installed the Oyaide WPC-Z.

I got them for 20 dollars each on Ebay......there is no brand name, and they seem to be made well. The dealer is actually in HongKong, and we exchanged pleasantries....I was there a couple of months ago and told him how much I enjoyed the land and people.

I have Oyeida connectors on the preamp and cd power cables (neotech wire).......I got the top the line carbon fiber Furutech for the amp....I think they sound better, but Furutech is much more expensive.

This observation of yours Sgreen, IMHO,helps to put the kibosh on statements like "Keep in mind a carbon fiber AC outlet wall plate will not provide jaw-dropping results, since it provides the type of incremental improvement that a device such as this tends to offer." Congratulation on your improvement.

The OP expresses 'enthusiastic surprise' about the improvement. As the AA Inmate who advocated the device in the first place, it was my 'duty' not to go 'overboard' about a 'tweak' that some folks might not understand or highly-doubt. If I hyped my findings, I would look like the type of listener who says they were 'blown-away' when they tightened their binding post nuts. 'Jaw-dropping' is not how I describe the results of a carbon fiber AC outlet wall plate, since I'll leave that descriptor to a product like a major audio component upgrade, or installing high-performance room treatments that can indeed be a 'jaw-dropping' experience.

Even if it doesn't make sense it should be tried. A couple of years ago, I was hearing a high frequency something from my left speaker...changed cables, nothing. I send the left crossover, bass amp, and some other thing, back to Vandersteen for a checkup. Nothing wrong....I then took out the mid and tweeter....sent them back....nothing wrong....then packed up and sent my 140 pound amp back to Ayre....nothing wrong. Whatever it was...this carbon face plate fixed the problem and made the whole system better. I can't understand how it works, but there it is. ...by the way the power cords are fitted with the top of the line carbon fiber Furutech plugs.....Maybe Furutech figured it out.

I think it's important to remember that the scale of the results for this kind of change is dependent on the degree of transparency in one's system to begin with. In other words as one works to find and employ various means to effectively improve music reproduction, i.e. tweak, these effects become cumulative and increasingly noticeable. In my own experience the same tweak can range from detectable with careful listening all the way up to dramatically apparent, depending on the degree to which one has paid attention to all the other factors that can effect music reproduction. Whether it's a big change or a small one is not only subjective, it's very much system dependent.

These cover plates don't include black screws to affix them in place. I had to use the beige screws of the original cover plates. 2 of the screws are hidden, but that third one was so annoying. With great trepidation I removed the screw, painted just the head black, returned the screw into the cover plate, put the stereo on.......whew.....the magic retained.

no ... keep in mind that there's branch circuits

it's a proven fact that in older homes with cast iron plumbing stacks there's a detectable magnetic field around it ... I've measured this myself with a compass

if your conduit is anywhere near that it's probably inducting an EMI, RFI, and an FBI signal polluting your equipment to the point it's incomparable to your memories of the best live musical performances ... or maybe your preternatural experience, who knows, I wasn't there

that's why all playback systems are evocative of the real thing unless they're part of the real thing {ie: pro sound systems]

don't get me started on Roku and microwave ovens!

btw, I'm a big fan of carbon fiber

Sgreen, if you get a chance give a solid, real brass center screw a try. Much better than a steel screw IMO. The difference is not all that subtle. The "brass" screws in my local Ace Hardware were not real brass. I see two people in the industry that think titanium is maybe the best, or better than brass and steel for vibration issues. Always nice to hear when someone has such a good outcome for themselves. Where can I find a wife like yours before I'm 80??

That's a very good question to inquire about, rivervalley817.

It's why I would recommend that a pair of monoblock power amplifiers or powered speakers be plugged into the same duplex AC outlet.

Even if the same branch circuit is involved for both channels, plugging both amplifiers into the same AC outlet is advisable.

A listener should want the exact same, identical audio characteristics for both channels, so a single duplex AC outlet should be used for the two amplifiers.

A non-magnetic stainless steel screw, or if you want to go overboard, buy a pricey titanium screw.

Otherwise, a simple brass screw is fine. Even the mundane screw that came with a plastic wall plate is not a deal breaker.

I'm 90% joking. Really? I'm sure the screw that comes with even the cheapest home store wall plate is adequate. The tension from wall plate to wall acts as a damper, too, so I have difficulty even imagining a vibration path.....as if that makes any difference whatsoever.

I'm sure you're correct pictureguy that any screw is adequate or fine as duster says. I'm sure a plastic ordinary wall plate is fine also. I'm sure listening with cheap headphones on a computer is fine. I'm sure listening to cheap crummy capacitors is fine for the majority of humans. I'm sure it would be fine to just get rid of Tweaker's Asylum since listening to music without tweaking is fine, I'm sure it is.

I would NEVER try to interfere with YOU and YOUR RIGHT to tweak away. Have fun.
And I know that in the big picture, sometimes an interesting and more.......global......discovery is made.
So? Carry on. I'm right now trying to source depleted Uranium wall place screws. And using wall plates backed with some sound damping stuff. Who knows?

The whole history of this is one of increasingly better and more detailed measurements and coorelations. But still and all, NO predictor of ultimate sound quality. That's in the furure, if ever.

Anyway, all I found was grade 2 or grade 4 titanium. this part os the CP line...or 'commerically pure'.
Not even much of an alloy, but should suffice for most purposes...

Around here? I"d go to ACE Hardware. They frequentyly have stuff the 'big boys' don't........

They even have Rockwood lump charcoal for my BBQ....

Here in SoCal? Even finding an electronics store to source a few parts was a PIA. ANYTHING out of the mainstream is either send for it or drive a ways.
I wanted some plastic lenses for kitchen lights. Home stores are ALL small.....Instead of 24"x48" subtract 1/4" from both dimensions. WHAT? I had to drive 35 or 40 miles to find full dimension lenses......
Crazy.

For the screws? I'd check McMaster Carr......they have EVERYTHING......

The typical US center screw is a 6/32 1/2 or maybe the next size up like 5/8th.

Sgreen, both can be hard to impossible to find at regular hardward stores. It can get pricey since we only need one or a few. I could probably send you a 6/32 brass screw and I should be getting a few titanium 6/32 screws in soon. These are US threads. If your threads are metric than you are on your own. Looks like anything can be gotten on ebay but there's the quantity and shipping cost. If you have a fastener specialty business around you that might work. Look into that and maybe they will give you one or sell a small quantity. #1 is to make sure you know the screw size.

it's an electrical junction box not a Van De Graaff generator or E-motor

the human body manifests stronger fields than could possibly be found in them, what's the strategy for that? your frig is dumping it's own spectrum of signal energy into the wiring and vibrations into the building, now what? god forbid if you use a window air conditioner

The guys that 'hear stuff', like different screws and wall plate materials are ADAMANT that this kind of detail makes 'A Big Difference'.

That's why I tongue-in-cheek suggested Beryllium or Depleted Uranium screws. As if 8$ or 10$ for a Titaium screw isn't enough!

I did get to compare titanium screws in power supply caps to ss screws a long long time ago and the titanium sounded better. I must say pg that the inflation thing has me a bit worried. Prices should be sinking. Herbie rates titanium the best for vibration control.

I'm EXTREMELY cynical as a general rule, though Good Food trumps my reticence.

However? MY test would be to have someone remove OR NOT the cover in question without you knowing. IF you go ......'Hey!~ Where's the cover?' i'd be convinced....as long as it is safely out of sight....

ALL my travel is on hold until at least after 1st of the year. Maybe by SPring Training, I could get aroom and see a couple games......and have a good listening experience.

I don't know pg but let us know after you have listened to all the grades. According to the article below all are 99% titanium. It is likely a moot point since I summoned my star friends last night and they agreed to supply me with a few kryptonite wall plate screws, said to be the best sounding in the universe.
Likely before they come I will a-b brass and 99% titanium. If the titanium work out maybe we can get together and fund the manufacture of some titanium wall plates.

Titanium Grade 2 / UNS R50400
Description
Titanium Grades 1, 2, 3 and 4 are commercially pure (99% minimum titanium). Each grade has slight variations in chemical composition that affect mechanical properties and design capability. The corrosion resistance is similar across all four grades. Titanium is light weight, exceptionally corrosion resistant and often exceeds the corrosion resistance of stainless steels in most environments. Of the four commercially pure (C.P.) titanium grades, Grade 2 is the alloy of choice for most industrial applications that require good ductility and corrosion resistance.
