Wiremold ''NAIM'' powerstrip prices what's this???



I was just wondering if there is a difference between the Wiremold ''Naim approved'' powerstrip sold for $ 56.00 and the one sold on the Allied Electronic website (http://www.alliedelec.com Allied part number 533-9218 for Wiremold part number L10320 )

I know of someone who ordered this unit for $ 31.23 plus $ 8.00 shipping and apparently it is the very same thing...

I do have an issue with anyone selling anything that is ABOVE FULL RETAIL PRICING.

I also find it a touch shady that the unit would be described as a ''NAIM'' powerstrip when there is no mention whatsoever of Naim anywhere on the product of packaging. I understand and agree that this Wiremold product is good, and that Naim ''approved''of it. Checking the Naim website however, the Wiremold strip has been ''replaced'' by a costlier one with apparent input from Naim in it's design.

Still, this $ 31.00 Wiremold strip from Allied seems like an excellent deal, if it is the same one as what is being offered by Audiogon, and if it is, may I suggest that at teh A-gon price of $ 56.00, it is way overpriced and contrary to the Audiogon buddy-buddy philosophy of doing business. Even if we include the $ 8.00 Allied usually charges for delivery ( meaning the strip comes in at around $ 39.00 )We are still talking close to 55% ABOVE USUAL RETAIL PRICING. Not much of a deal in my book.

they don't exactly say not to worry about the amps and speakers. they just say that there is a hierarchy. garbage in/garbage out. that's why they say to start at the source and work your way down.

makes sense to me! nothing downstream can improve wht's upstream.

like the docs say: 1st, do no damage.
gi/go is the same as the weakest link in the chain theory! Linn started the "put it all into the source" because at the time not only did they sell turntables, the turntable was the weakest link!

I just order the Wiremold L10320 from Allied today.
The description at Allied says it has a circuit breaker, but Naim USA or its dealers say no circuit breaker. After I take the L10320 apart I will report my findings.
Avhed, well, what do you think?
Yes I just noticed this from allied that the description reports circuit breaker, and if you look at the pdf catalog page it may even indicate an led. Not sure but I did see the circuit breaker. I may give allied a call. I was ready to purchase one and then seen the description.
