Proper test? How about this for a true proper test...
I think you have it bass ackwards... the better the system the easier it is to notice the improvement a GTX receptacle will make. But I'd guess you've never tried one, so your opinion on the subject seems worthless.
I have no clue how a listener after 100 to 400 hours, could weed out the small change in sound from a receptacle with so many uncontrolled variables causing large changes.
Also, one problem with 'dissenters'.. Plenty of former folks who say wire is wire, a power cord is a powercord, ditto duplex..I too used to think that. I discovered my assumptions were wrong.
This was my experience, as well. The dissenters are nearly always people who haven't tried it, and that's totally unscientific; nevertheless, they have the audacity to base their arguments on science.
agreed, I had a good laugh .........
I think what a lot of you are missing here is a lot of us 'dissenters' as you call us are not going to say cabling can't make a difference (it can), rather it's some of the ludicrous claims made not only by the manufacturer but by some of the end users as well. Spending some of the absurd amounts of money for receptacles , IC's, speaker wire and power cords (70k for MIT top of the line speaker cables as an example) just proves that insanity is not confined to those already locked up in an institution !
This won't work in this particular case as the sound changes back and forth. It's so obvious though, it's not subtle at all. I don't need a proper test to tell black from white.
Problem with your argument is you do not have any proof whats so ever whether a AC power receptacle can have an impact on the SQ of piece of audio equipment or audio system? You have no practical hands on experience do you? You don't have to spend big bucks on receptacle to hear a difference in sound from your audio system. just buy an old stock Hubbell HBL8200H (15 amp) or HBL8300H (20 amp) compact/slim body hospital grade duplex receptacle and try it in place of what you are using now.http://www.hubbellcatalog.com/wiring/catalogpages/H5254.pdf

After 400 hours of burn-in on one outlet and a few hours of burn-in at best on the other, I better hear a difference.
The problem is that nobody here has any proof. A listening test isn't proof, that's called an opinion as it's not being done scientifically whatsoever. That's fact.
