Most Home Depost and Lowes do not sell the brands that most Audiophiles like. You will probably have to go to an electrical supply store to get the hospital grade Hubbell 8300 and Pass & Seymour outlets many prefer.
Buy anyway, if you get whatever Hospital or Industrial grade outlet that they do sell, it will be much better than what comes standard in most homes, simply because the electrical contacts are much better.
I have used the Leviton Pro-Grade mentioned above in some outlets in my home. They are pretty good and very reasonably priced.
I picked-up cryo treated Pass & Seymour 5362-A (20A) Receptacles from Chris VenHaus website. Very reasonably priced; they arrived in two days w/ standard shipping, and the service was second to none. Receptacles are clearly top-notch construction, and they grip like a bear. Detailed description available at http://www.vhaudio.com/acreceptacles.html
