HELLO...does anyone know what material are the pins in the IEC plug made of??
Either in the standard naim cable and in the powerline??
I cannot recognize looking "into it" if it is made of brass or copper!
I need to make new cables that run from a powerstrip to the wall and also to connect other non naim stuff but I do not want to mix useless materials like gold plating as this does not seem to be used in naim cables!
I see the standard one supplied with my supernait2 as many have observed is a nickel over brass I guess shuko version + cable made by "I-SHENG KEMA KEUR" + IEC made by SHIH YANG MODEL "SY-020" but of I look inside I cannot discern if the metal used is again either brass or copper!
Same in the powerline which i don't own and I can't find useful info about it on the web.
Can anyone help considering it's hard to find NON treated/plated good standard iec's / schuko on web shops and considering that I noticed a change, doesn't matter if good or bad but still different, in plated plugs which also changes from brand to brand in relation to the thickness and type of process used in the process?
again the "standard" naim supplied cables might seem standard pc's ones but actually if you try to look into the iec the contacts' colour seem to differ from "normal ones" as the naim's goes more into orange/brownish (that's why they seem to be made of copper or a different type of brass)and standard are more yellowish (I presume brass)
thank you from Italy
