    Modifying a PS Audio P10 power generator

    The Japanese yen is low and a friend of mine bought some Furutech's newest GTX-D(R) NCF dual-sockets during his family vacation trip to Japan.
    His P10 has already past the warranty period and he is a very itchy audiophile so :

    THanks for documenting the mod. Good to see the Furutech outlets are UL listed.

    The new Furutech NCF Series is Rhodium-plated but is quieter yet more musical than the previous Rhodium-plated models.
    Comparing the original sockets with the new NCF sockets on this P10 is easy and the NCF advantages are confirmed.

    Never, ever put the ac wires into the holes on the plug.
    Always use the screw...holds MUCH better and you get a lot more contact area.

    OK, I'm six weeks late.
    On these receptacles, I don't think that the holes work like the cheap back-stab spring loaded receptacles. They are just wire guides to the screw terminals. Other brands have this arrangement and it works very well.

    Agree!
    The Furutech GTX series of sockets have curved internal camping plates and other proprietary designs.
    In fact Furutech recommends putting the internal wires into these dedicated holes for clamping.

    My friends and I compared attaching the internal wires via the holes vs onto the external screw with ring connectors.
    The former gives much better sonics.

    Don't use back-stabs, ever. Unless you like fires.

    The Furutech's look fine to me with their nice clamps.
