Im looking for Wattgate or Furutech IEC connectors in the UK.
Ive searched google and here etc and i feel that the people supplying these connectors tend to be specialist Audio dealers rather than Electrical distributors.
I have no problem with people making a profit but these guys know how to charge :o~:-o~:eek:
Does any one know of a good supplier of these type of connectors at resonable prices.I dont mind paying for better products but i dont like paying over the odds. :D~:-D~:grin:

I think you have to import them from the US if you want to get them for a cheaper price, I don't know where exactly though!

I've got a vague recollection of someone sourcing them cheaply from a marine/yachting supply company. Can't recall any details though, sorry. :(

Thanks lads. I'll keep searching its like the MK plug think cheap from B&Q an arm and a leg from a specialist audio dealer.
a good basic Wattgate plug in the USA is only $20.00 Thats £11.05 at todays exchange rate.I havent seen any dealers sell them for £20.00 which i feel is a fair price.

The best I've seen are http://www.audusa.com/connectioners.htm I've bought a few orders off them and have received good service.
£7 silver plated Martin Kaiser IEC320 seems relatively good value and nice to work with. £19 Wattgate IEC320 not silver plated, but indeed large bodied! I've only bought one of these to try. I particularly like the silver plated MK toughplugs at £11.
Watch them when phoning your order in as they seem to add up to more than the web prices. I think of it as a local supplier tip fee.
These I combine with Supra LoRad shielded cable from hifibitz or hificables.
