Peter, the two bolded lines are confusing. Did the electrician use 20 amp breakers for your 30 amp circuits? If so, what makes the circuit '30 amps'?

Can’t answer that Ian. The breakers are rated for 20 A but it’s a 30 amp circuit based on the wiring used. I think the breaker is just rated to trip at that level but that the line can carry more power.

certainly others will have a better answer for you.

Very interesting, Peter! Thank you for the report!

Are you able to tell us your impressions focusing solely on the comparison between regular in-wall house power cable versus JPS In-Wall cable?

(I installed JPS In-Wall after it was recommended to me by my electrical contractor, and before I thought carefully myself about these issues. But I did abort the installation of Furutech NCF duplex receptacle components.)

Ron, you may want to contact JPS labs to see if the wire they sold 20 years ago is the same as the wire they sold you five years ago. It’s very possible that it’s different and may sound different in your installation than it does in my installation.

Having done these series of experiments in my own system, if I were to ever move, I would start out with a very basic electrical delivery set up like I have now and only after the system was fine tuned and playing would I ever consider getting aftermarket specialty outlets and wiring. And then I would only do listening comparisons before making a change. Sometimes that is easier said than done with in wall wiring.

Thank you, Peter. I believe that that cable has never changed materials or construction.

I would like to point out that everything Peter is doing is through the lens of Pass and Magico. Not everything will be universal.

More than that, it is through the lens of my own ears and brain which are completely corrupted.

Please feel free to ignore all of my results and reports. I’m not claiming anything is universal or applicable outside of the four walls of my listening room.
