    This has also been my experience.

    Hi Rikardo
    I like the Olson cases
    I would wire each socket in parallel back to a fixed point as per your star earth, not in series

    With the cable lengths involved, it won't make blind bit of difference if the sockets are wired star fashion or are 'daisy chained'.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I have decided to do Left and Right version design so it would be easier to keep it closer to the wall with plug cables facing away the wall(depends on what side of wall your socket is)

    Don't you already know which side your wall socket is on?
