Due to demand for isolated ground, I am stocking White and Ivory as IG only and also have a few Gray. There are currently a few non IG in stock if you prefer that design.
Hubbell has increased prices 10% and then recently nearly 20%. I will soon be forced to increase price to $45.00 for Porter Ports. If you need a few this is a great time to buy.
The Hospital grade I was so fond of is (model 8300) is only available with magnetic steel back strap and galvanized plating. This is miserable sounding so I've abandoned that design.
By ordering about 1000 pieces at a time, Hubbell is delivering Hospital grade interior parts, unplated and non magnetic in the industrial 5362 body, brass back strap. and Isolated Ground. This is the best Porter Port ever.
These are Hubbell rated for 20 amp and a perfect replacement for both 15 amp and 20 amp outlets. These upgrade both the quality and connection of your electrical and are an obvious upgrade in our music systems. It even helped the image quality of my Plasma TV.
Most outlets have plated connectors (Nickel, Silver or Tin), and designed to hold up in harsh chemical and / or oxygen rich environments. This is not only unnecessary for our audio systems, it harms the quality of sound.
Porter Ports began as a project for my own personal sound system back in 2000 here at Audiogon.
Late in 2001 after mentioning my results of these cryo treated outlets in Audiogon forums several members ask me to make available and at an affordable price.
After supplying 50 pieces to the original participants I kept getting requests for more and It has continued since. A real audiophile success story, made popular by performance to dollar value, I've sold thousands of these including a few well known reviewers systems.
