Albertporter only needs 50

Hey Audiogoners,

Albertporter has made a great offer to coordinate the bulk purchase of cryoed Hubbel outlets. My feeling if it's good enough for Albert's system, it's good enough for mine. But we need more people to participate to make it worth while. Check this post out:

If you don't have time to check out the entire post here is Albert's offer:

"If a group of you want to go together, buy a box or case of outlets, I can get a quantity discount for us for the full cryo treatment. There will be no special packaging or wrappers, but you will have ultimate performance for a fraction of the cost.(This is exactly what I did)."

I spoke with Albert earlier today and he is willing to arrange for the purchase of the outlets in Dallas, have them treated and then probably ship them out Fedex ground. Albert would be doing us all a favor and his only interest is in helping the audio community. Let him know how many you are interested in. I'm in for six (6).
The outlets came out today in anticipation of the arrival of the cable cooker. The sound was a bit strange again yesterday. I had shut the fans off after tuesday as the noise was getting annoying and the wind tunnel testing had shown a high coefficient of drag for the couch in my listening room. I knew the cooker was on it's way. They did seem to regress a bit after the two days of no fans, even with some draw on them from my pre and sub woofer amp at idle.

The sound today of the exotic 85 cent Levitons is a bit of a let(outlet)down. The system was sounding better than it ever had before the installation of the Hubbells and I guess is back to what it was. It's hard to go back. It will only be a few days now and I will be back, and beyond to a level that I miss already. How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm........
Dill, I do plan to clean the outlets with ProGold before they go back in this time. I did some research at the Caig site and there seems to be no problem with it reacting poorly with the unplated copper. Just wanted to be sure before I put ANYTHING on them. Thanks for your suggestion.
I have used ProGold as a contact enhancer and found that a metal cleaner followed by Deoxit (to remove all cleaner residue) and then a coating of ProGold works well. Another product I have used in the past as a cheap contact enhancer is RailZip, used by model railroaders and slotcar people on the track to improve contact from track piece to track piece. It is much cheaper than ProGold but does leave a bit of residue, but cleans off.
Drubin, My understanding is that you just wire them up to the cooker as if you were going to burn in a speaker cable. I am going to connect three outlets at once and burn them in a daisy chain. I will know more about it when the cooker arrives tomorrow. This is the way I understand that it is done for the World Power cryo'd Hubbells who is also the manufacturer of the Audiodharma Cable Cooker.
