With standard audio grade male plugs plugged into the Power Plant 12 there is not enough space to plug a female power in plug. The engineers could have given a little more room and a audio grade plug would work fine. Anyone have a solution or replacement audio grade female plug that can be used?
It’s extremely tight, but I managed to squeeze in the WW Platinum Electra 7 female plug into next to the Pangea and NBS Omega Extreme Zero.
Seems like it should have been thought about and an easy fix to move it over a 1/4". I don’t like the pressure on the plug. I wonder if PS Audio female plugs are smaller than a audio grade plug. Maybe Paul could chime in.
I had to use one of these next to the input connection when i had a bigger plug I use before to extend the plug. I don’t know if it affects the sound though. I think PS Audio made a mistake on the design not knowing what kinds of plugs audiophiles use.
What is the diameter of the PS Audio female plug?
It is more like a oval shape, 1 1/4" X 1 1/2". That is why it fits a little better because the side to side fits in vertically is 1 1/4"
The Pangea is also 1 1/4" up, down, side to side. That’s why when you put it in-between, you can squeeze the other larger plugs in next to it.
I have used both of these. They are good quality connectors. You could also use a narrower Male plug next to the Main inlet female.
That would work but my cables are 15mm and it is very hard to find a narrow female plug that can accommodate a 15mm cable.
I would suggest adjusting the adjacent male AC plug to a narrower variant. That’s the option I selected. Should be able to find an acceptable AC male plug, even for the larger cable opening.
These are some very nice connectors that might work for you. Give Cardas a call for the specs. Not sure about the max cord dimension spec. I have a Quadlink PC in the spot next to the Power Plant power inlet, and there’s plenty of room.
Seems that we who have the EU-model (Sweden here) has more space between the connectors on the P12 but then we have only 4 power outlets on it also instead of 8 as you in the US have.
The same on the P15, more room for contacts but only 9 instead of 10 outlets. Not to talk about the P20, 13 instead of 16 outlets.
Nice that it’s not only negative things with having the “Fewer Outlets-model”. (Thumbs Up)
Audioquest sells right angle connectors
maybe consider these…they are worth the price, especially considering the price of the connected equipment.
