This reminds me of a friend of mine who spend like $4000 for a 25 watt tube type audio amplifier, and then another $500 for a "special" power cord (the power cord was like as big around as my thumb), which guaranteed that the power to the amplifier would be fully protected from spurious noise and this claim, and that claim. He swore it made his amplifier sound better than a standard line cord....until I asked him if it ran all the way through the wall to the power box, or if he was plugging his $500 power cable into an outlet which was wired with 30 yr old electrical wire going unshielded through the walls of his house, and also had several lights and switches connected to it.... You would have thought I shot him...he never gave that a thought. There is one born every minute.
