Russ Andrews announces upgrades to SuperSockets

Russ Andrews is upgrading its well-respected mains wall sockets, the SuperSockets, to provide a better connection for hi-fi systems and improve the overall audio experience.

Aiming to get the most out of hi-fi set ups in the home, Russ Andrews, chairman of the company explained: “The mains connection is fundamental to the performance of the system. Ideally, we would all replace the ring main in our houses with better quality cable, but this isn’t always possible, so one of the simplest improvements that can be made is to fit much better quality wall sockets.

“Our new SuperSockets have been designed to give a much better connection to the plugs, which lowers impedance and ensures that the current flows as efficiently as possible into the hi-fi system. This results in an audibly superior performance and ultimately a more enjoyable listening experience.”

The upgraded product, the SuperSocket II, features high spring-rate brass contacts that are pre-treated with DeoxIT Contact Enhancer. The solution dissolves any oxide present on the contact and leaves a thin (organic) layer that coats and protects the metal to maintain the best possible performance over time. 

It is an easy integration involving a straight swap for existing double sockets. Like the previous model, the SuperSocket II is also available with a separate earth terminal for use with the Russ Andrews RF Grounding System. All models are unswitched for a lower impedance performance. 

The SuperSocker II (double) is available for £27 and SuperSocket II (double) with earth terminal is priced at £37.
