Came home tonight, and heard some promise, but definitely still cooking. I can tell, even though the outlet hasn't cooked yet, that the black outlet is smoother than the teslaplex se, and doesn't have the sizzle factor. Still waiting for the soundstage to bloom. Bill Evans, live at at the village vanguard sounded very smooth tonight, but had no sparkle, and the soundstage has not blossomed just yet. Everything is still "attached to the speakers". BUT, it definitely sounds better than yesterday. It's obviously a great outlet, because they are used in my power conditioner, I just have to be patient for the one I'm the wall to catch up to the ones in the conditioner.
