Cryogenically processed (-320°F). The cryo treatment imparts tighter molecular bonds resulting in a lower noise floor. Greater musical clarity, increased focus, and blacker background are realized. Includes free 40 hour burn-in on the Audiodharna cable cooker. The perfect match for our Silver Strand Power Cable.

Code Requirements: (Boutique Audiophile outlets do not meet building code safety requirements).

In 46 of the 50 United States and all of Canada, Tamper-Resistant Receptacles are required in new residential construction as of November 2013. Also recommended as a replacement receptacle for older homes. These outlets prevent contact by objects like keys or paper clips inserted into the socket. This is accomplished by an interlocking mechanism that requires hot and neutral blades inserted simultaneously to release the small doors blocking the slots. The grounding slot is not blocked by a door (not required). Compared to contractor grade outlets, Hubbell outlets allow bind-free insertion of the AC plug.
