E - Not sure what that snazzy scope does, but the Shunyata folks claim to have "bamboozled" heart surgeons into using their power cables on their snazzy medical equipment. From their site:
With a science-based approach to peak-current transfer and noise reduction, our power cords have found broad applications: from the system used to remaster Dark Side of the Moon at Astoria Studios to systems used in performing delicate heart surgery at hospitals around the USA.
So, perhaps there is a role for their cables with your snazzy scope?
Yeeeah.... I bet Shunyata told the people at those hospitals that the filters in their power cables would reduce the risk of getting a BSOD on important equipment in the middel of a critical situation. They probably just thought "better safe than sorry" and bought the damn things. I really doubt anybody believes that the cables will make heart surgery more efficient or more beautifully executed.
It's still completely irrelevant when talking about audio gear. If your amp/DAC/whatever can't do that filtering good enough to avoid audible issues on its own, then it's a piece of trash, and you should simply buy some well-engineered gear instead of wasting money on magical power cables.
