Oyaide 174-R IEC-CM
Details of the 174-R (Roughly translated and edited from the Oyaide website)
The IEC 320 power inlet is widely used for many types of audio equipment. Oyaide have aimed to produce the best Inlet on the market. The housing is made from 30% glass filler PBT. This has excellent qualities of high durability, vibration absorption, and heat resistance. I use a rhodium plating to the blade, and a body made with heat resistant resin that is reinforced with glass powder filled PBT 30% resulting in high rigidity, durability, anti-vibration resistance, and excellent resistance to heat from soldering, making damage or deformation to the resin, less likely to occur. Soldering is easy as compared to standard inlets.
The 174-R is an AC inlet of the highest quality with excellent workability, with improved sound quality and enhanced resolution.
Specifications of 174-R:
Body: 30% glass filled PBT filler
Rating: 250V 15A

I believe they were written by the owner, who is an audiophile, and very passionate about the quality of his products. I will edit these as I discover errors, or wording that did not translate clearly.
