World's BEST ac outlets.......Maestro outlets


Category: Accessories

Over the years I have tried most of the raved outlets on the market and the Porter Ports from Albert Porter were the best that I had found that did not add or take way from the music... here's a few, Oyaide R1, Synergistic Research Telsaplex, FIM 880, WattGate Silver 381 ag, PS Audio powerport premier, Jena Labs, Isoclean Gold. All these other outlets did something to harm the music in some way...some hyped up the highs and mids and others had bloated low ends. I always thought the Porter Ports were the best on the market that I had tried until I tried the Maestro outlets. The Maestro outlets are the most neutral and most accurate outlets that I have ever heard. I let the maestro outlets settle-in a little for 7 full days and nights playing music non-stop before comparing them with my porter ports. When I compared the two I found that the porter ports sounded a little closed-in and a little Flat sounding when compared to the maestro outlets. The porter ports was not as clean or as clear when compared to the maestro outlets. The porter ports low end was a little bloated too when compared to the maestro outlets. On complex musical passages with the porter ports in my system I found myself turning the volume down more...much more! When I was listening to music with the maestro outlets in my system the Trasparency of these outlets were truely amazing and I hope this will get even better as these outlets settle-in more! The soundstage was wider and deeper and they were more upper frequency air too when compared to the porter ports. The Maestro outlets had a lower noise floor that allowed more of the suble cues to come through more. The maestro outlets also had a better separation of individual instruments and vocals....more natural sounding more REAL! I think the non-plated maestro outlets have a much more direct sound than the non-plated porter ports because the Maestro outlets have a higher quality copper content. My vintage sansui sp-5500 horn speakers just completely disappears now with these maestro outlets in my entry level system...Marantz pm-7001 and matching marantz CD player, DH Labs power plus power cables, very cheap copper interconnects from wal-mart, Synergistic Research Alpha quad active speaker cables... I think these maestro outlets will become an Instant Classic!

These outlets are great with video too. My pioneer krp-500m plasma has never looked better! Very sharp picture...very vivid colors...skin tones look more natural looking.The whole picture looks so film-like and so clear that it looks like your looking through a window now!
I did put one of these maestro outlets inside my monster power hts-3000 power conditioner for my Pioneer plasma and Directv HD satellite receiver in my home theater system. My HD picture just keeps getting better as the maestro outlet settles-in more!
Hi Hifi,

Thanks for your observation on this outlet. You just gave me an itch now to try this outlet. Will be interesting to see if it will boogie with my system as it is balanced now.

Best regards,

(UPDATE) I really did this review a little too soon because my system is still improving even more now...cleaner...more open...and more spacious sounding! I'm going to wait another week or two and do an update review on them then.
So where do you purchase them and what do they cost?
