Well I guess MH could claim you get better support, international dealer network, etc. 

Hey, it also looks more audiophile in black vs red. 


Main listening (small home office):

Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>CAPS IV Pipeline Server + Sonore 12V PS >SOtM Lan Isolator>Bricasti M5 Network Player >Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.
 

Secondary Listening: CAPS Pipeline>IFi iOne DAC>Schiit Freya>Kii Three . Also 2 SBT and an SB Boom. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

And now there's this: https://www.psaudio.com/products/noise-harvester/

The Tice clock would at least tell the time.

That isn't new, it's been around a long time. I don't remember where, but I did see a review once where they had measurements that showed less noise on the line when these were plugged in. Don't remember any of the details, I'm sure you could find it if you are interested.

Makes sense. Everything that alters the waveforms on the mains power can alter the sound - because the engineering of nearly all audio components is inadequate to reject the impact of that changed environment. People are happy to tell the story that rigs sound better late at night, because all the crap on the power lines is less - but somehow using some device which directly attenuates or changes the waveform of the noise, in a deliberate way, is a weirdo thing to do, ¬¬.

 

Just because something "ain't scientific" doesn't mean there won't be an effect - the real job is to work out what's going on, and devise an efficient means of getting the same benefits, if any occur.

That's probably because ambient noise tends to be lower at night. Less traffic, etc.

Explanations can be BS. Because they protecting IP - just look at how patents are worded to cover the real knowledge - or because they don't understand themselves what's going on. Here an expression involving baby, throw, and bathwater comes to mind ...

Possibly in some instances - the local audio friend who now does a lot of tweaking in the same fashion as I do lives in a totally quiet, dead end street still hears this behaviour - listens for many hours up past midnight, and hears a clear trend.

 

He doesn't take as many measures as I would to combat power line noise - and so would be more subject to this, IMO.

the price difference is in the tilt of the darker caps


"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."
