I think that’s stretching the definition of ‘Star Wired’ a bit too far!

Here’s a comparison between ‘true’ Star Wiring and Wireworlds interpretation.

Yep, definitely not true star wired. More of a star and jumper hybrid. Not excited by the twist on wire connectors either - lots of connections in that unit.

Your drawing to the right is not quite correct. It's rather a star wiring to outlets 1, 3 and 5 and then jumpers between 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6.

I wonder if it would sound better if live, neutral and ground wires to each outlet ran close together rather than being separated, as they are now. Or perhaps live and neutral together and ground by itself.

Well spotted!

Hi!

Forget about Class Ohlsson (Co/tech) or my previous recommended block (Wireworld Matrix 2)

This is the ultimate distributor block for Linn systems. I use it Linn own power cables and i have never heard that good block in musical way. It's not cheap and only 3 way but damn, it's hell of a upgrade! Burn in takes about 1-2 weeks.

Unfortunately EU schuko version only available.

Perhaps they sound good, I haven't heard them, but their rationale is pure BS.
