The PowerPort Classic is a high-end AV grade AC receptacle that will make a significant contribution to your system’s performance.

At the heart of everything we do with AC power is the interface between our equipment and our power sources; the AC receptacle. Unfortunately, standard AC receptacles are made from cheap brass that does not provide the best levels of conductivity. That’s where the PowerPort steps in

Description

The PS Audio PowerPort Classic

The PS Audio PowerPort Classic is a custom built, isolated ground, 15 to 20 amp receptacle that will insure a life-long level of excellence and superior conductivity. The PS Audio PowerPort Classic exceeds hospital grade for grip strength, contact resistance and current delivery. Easy to install in your wall, this is one component you need in your listening room. 15 coats of polished nickel over high-purity brass, with the “grip of Mickey Mantle” and polished nickel plated hardware, this a must have in your system.

  • DESIGN – the PS Audio PowerPort Classic contacts are cast from the highest purity non-ferrous material available: pure OFC copper and beryllium to maintain excellent grip. The OFC copper contacts are then plated with a high phosphor electroless nickel coating, free from flux-density and power supply issues. nce the electroless nickel plating has been added to the OFC copper connectors, each Power Port goes through a final step before insertion into the body of the receptacle. Each contact is hand polished to improve the surface smoothness and hence an increase in surface area and better conductivity. The main body of the Power Port is a UL approved polycarbonate material while the front cover of the Power Port is a glass fiber filled high temperature nylon, both excellent dielectrics.
  • APPLICATION – PS Audio PowerPort Classic AC receptacles should replace any standard wall outlets connected to your stereo or home theater system. To install a Power Port takes about 10 minutes. Turn off the power to the outlet. Remove the cover plate. Remove the two screws affixing the existing receptacle and pull the receptacle out from the box. Using a Phillips screwdriver, simply disconnect the wires from the existing plug and place them on the Power Port. Reverse the removal procedure and you are done. Not only will the Power Port ensure that your system will always be provided with as much power as your listening habits require, but it will also give you peace of mind that your AC wall plug is no longer the weak-link in your power chain.

 

Review

All the AC receptacles in my home that feed hi-fi components have now been changed over to PS Audio Power Ports – Stereophile, Art Dudley

 

Technology

You spent a great deal of time, money and personal effort building a great sounding music or home theater setup and in all likelihood, you’re feeding it less than great power. Everything we see and hear in our AV systems starts out as raw AC power. The unrestricted quality of that power has a great deal to do with the performance quality of our systems. Garbage in, garbage out. If you’re serious about sound and video quality, replacing your home’s cheap brass power receptacles is the first step. The Power Port is among the finest AC receptacles made. Hospital grade, and using high purity copper with 15 coats of polished nicer as conductors, the PS Audio PowerPort Classic is a must have in a high-performance system.

 

What’s in your walls?

Most every home in the US and Canada has a 15 amp duplex NEMA socket in the wall. Some have 20 amp versions, most have 15 amp varieties, but all are basically the same. These receptacles are constructed out of low-grade brass with very little care as evidenced in their purchase price of under $1.00. They are very poorly built, have poor grip, lower surface area and tend to build up oxidation “barnacles” on the untreated brass, which hampers connectivity. Poor connectivity and loss of surface area from the contacts interacting with airborne pollution spells audible degradation for audio systems and increased visible noise for video systems. The PS Audio PowerPort Classic is the answer.

 

Why they matter

AC power is the source for everything we see and hear through our media systems. Whether a 2-channel audio setup or a multi-channel home theater, AC power supplies everything needed to bring music and pictures into our homes. The quality of that raw power impacts our system’s performance. Just as cables make a difference, so too do the contacts and connectors gluing everything together into a system. The receptacles in our homes are made from cheap brass that will oxidize and over time suffer conductivity issues. These can be helped by constant cleaning, plugging in and out to remove oxidation and airborne pollutants. Or, simple replace with the PS Audio PowerPort Classics and never worry again.

Rapallo is fully authorized to sell products by all of the manufacturers listed on our website and in our store. In most cases we are more than a reseller, we are a direct dealer who also receives training and where possible we personally test products we sell.

 

Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo

  • meets manufacturer’s standards, from sales to service, in order to receive authorized status.
  • often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • provides  support for all the products they sell.
  • ensures that manufacturer warranties will be honoured.
  • buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (no grey imports or parallel imports).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

 

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

 

Think you have a better price from someone in NZ (authorised dealer)? Call us, we’ll see what we can do.

 

Concerned About Fraud?
The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating…

 

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
