INFORMATION
Your first connection to the mains

Russ’s ongoing quest to continue to improve the performance of his Hi-Fi and Home Cinema led him to discover UltraSockets.

The UltraSocket™ is available as a single outlet only. Originally designed for chassis mounting, we’ve custom-designed a faceplate (which is high impact and fire resistant for your peace of mind) meaning that the new socket is an easy swap for existing single or double wall sockets. For good measure, every UltraSocket is Deep Cryogenically Treated for best performance and they are treated with DeoxIT® contact enhancer before shipping.Ultrasocket
Russ says:
"When I first saw these new sockets, I set up a jig to test the sound quality of them. As good as our existing SuperSockets are, I can confirm that the new sockets are quite clearly better than the SuperSockets – and the SuperSockets sound very good in the first place.

The UltraSockets™ have a very high build quality and this translates into the better sound: they sounded more open, smoother and bass was tighter and cleaner, with more weight. My only concern now is how long it’s going to take me to replace all of the sockets in my system at home!”


N.B.
When ordering UltraSockets, ensure you choose the correct version, depending on whether you are replacing an existing single or double outlet. If replacing the socket yourself, ensure that the mains is switched off at the consumer unit and if in doubt consult a qualified electrician.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Robust terminals with high pressure contacts for a low resistance connection
  • Superior sounding single 13A 250V rated wall socket, manufactured to BS1363 certification
  • Custom faceplate made in UL 94-V0 (high impact and fire resistant)
  • Fits a standard single or double pattress / backing box
  • Accepts conductors upto 5mm in diameter
  • Dimensions: Double faceplate - 86mm x 146mm

    These are the standard sizes for UK wall sockets, so there should be no modification required to fit an UltraSocket in place of a standard 13A socket.

    "Simple Allows The Music To Breathe"
    I decided to move up from the double Super Socket with earth and am happily surprised with the results.  This Ultra Socket is clearly better.  I now plug my Ultra Purifier block in to the single Socket with earth.
    I have noticed an improved sense of rhythm and timing, with the whole presentation being more organised, so I can hear more in to recordings and what the artist intended.
    It may be the additional air and space around instruments, or the extra snap and impact that instruments have - or even the extra bass and mid depth and richness I now hear, but it all adds up to my enjoying my music more and an improved sense of fidelity / being there....
    In the context of a high end system, this Socket really has added to the sum of the parts in surprisingly beneficial ways!

    "Another Great Link In The Chain"
    I fitted this as a dedicated socket just for the hi-fi, and as with all the other mains products that I've bought recently, it has lifted another veil - the music is that little bit more 'there' - it has more presence.
