 Even after all of the years that I've in this hobby I'm still impressed at the level of sonic improvements that improvements/attention to connections can make._mykl

With every additional pair of Pure Copper RCA Sockets that I retrofitted my Audio equipment with the sonics improved until the full set was completed which yeilded a bonus improvement in sound quality!

The key element in getting the most sonic improvement out of an RCA Socket upgrade is to upgrade all of the RCA Sockets in the associated equipment to the same level.

looks awesome Max the mods there.

Upgrading is worth it, I thinking of doing the same for a vintage Tecchnics amp (1983), changing Nickel for gold plated.

Newark (US) is called Element14 in Australia. Cheap gold rca sockets, lumberg, deltron or taiwan made Pro-Signal. The deltrons are 0.05m gold flush over brass, lumbergs are gilded gold with CuZn ( i think is brass)body, Pro-sigal claim body is cu (copper)

What is 5A current rating vs 2A current rating for the lumberg.

thanks

Sammy- You're right, the the CuZn lumbergs are brass, but if the Pro-signal RCA Sockets are indeed Copper in my opinion that would be the best choice for replacement RCA Sockets because you don't want to risk compromising the integrity of the Analog signal transfer by using an alloy.

Thanks Max, yes i looked again, the deltron and lumbergs are made in the UK and Japan. Pro-Signal Taiwan, but aocrding to PDF, is CU, the nut is Zn. A mate gave me a nice price on Eichmann rca socket , can only afford 1 pair, rest will be pro-signal. I assume the cd or phono will get the Eichmann
No specs with prosignal, cheapest of the plugs, but CU

Each of the Pure Copper RCA Socket upgrades there was a noticeable improvement in sound quality, but after I had completed retrofitting the DAC, Preamp and Power Amp with Pure Copper RCA Sockets there was an additional cumulative improvement once they were all working together to pass the Analog signal so much more transparently than the gold plated nickel RCA Sockets could.
