Relating to this subject, can ya'll recommend an IEC female connection? I'm hoping to have on installed in my Accuphase C11 pre-amp. Presently it is hard wired.

Technically it's a male...  The metal conductors stick out, even though they are down inside the plastic housing. Same with XLRs.

This is what I use for most of my projects. I like that it has a 5x20mm fuse built in, solder tabs with big holes, screw mount, and it can be mounted in the panel from the front or rear depending on how clean I cut the hole.

I'm sure Furutech, et. al. have fancier versions available.
