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!
Mikesmith, I use to be skeptical about ac outlets too about 10 years ago. I know now how very important good ac outlets are for your whole audio/video system. These maestro outlets are now on the same level as an major component upgrade...they are that good! My system sounds like a much higher priced system with these maestro outlets in my system now. The music just flows SO effortessly without strain now! The built quality of this maestro outlet is very very good and the grip on the plugs are very good too.. better an porter ports. The maestro outlet feels like it has a little more weight to them when compared to the porter ports too. These maestro outlets are now turning out to be a very special product !....
I been using these for 3 months now. I been very happy. I tried a lot of the other mentioned, I liked the porter ports better than anything I tried up to $145.00.

I like these Masetro even more, I would agree with what Hifisound guy says. These are nice outlets, affordable, and do a great job of taking your system up a notch.

I am not for hype of worlds best, but from what I have tried over the past 3 years these have bettered them all and some by a long shot that cost double the price.
Totally agree with Hifisoundguy and Phillyb. The Maestro outlet is the most accurate outlet I've heard to date. I've owned Jena Labs, Porter Ports, Teslaplex, Oyaide R1,
FIM880, Wattgate, Isoclean. I strongly recommend you should try these MAESTRO outlets so you can hear the full potential of your system. Also recommend you audition any of the Tripoint products as I believe they will change your perspective of what's possible from music reproduction.
I installed one a couple days ago. I'm going to let that settle in before I add the 2nd. There are 6 of these on the Spartan, but I cannot comment specifically on the outlet from that perspective. I'll report my findings in a short time.

I know that Miguel Alvarez was extremely picky and careful to listen to all outlets, easily available or otherwise. In his exhaustive search, this one was the most natural, clear, relaxed, and grain-free.

In any event, the price is such that most people can decide for themselves.
I have had my Maestro outlet for a day and within 1 minute I was hearing a significant improvement in depth of soundstage and separation of instruments I had not heard with my other outlets. About 20 hours in I noticed a balanced clarity without the overblown bass or top end you get with some others. Very nice and still breaking in. Compared to Oyaide R1 and GWO-XXX, Wattgate, PorterPort and Jena Labs.
