Yes the article was published on April 1st 2019, but still...

Measurements are irrelevant, listening impression are what we can hear! I must say that I could have guessed the result. Still, test arrangements were not opened well enough. To proceed, I woul like to see a test how power cable length affects the sound, is there a critical crest factor the cable should exceed?

"The carefully screened and trained listeners described the power cords as “bringing sound to the system” and “the key to making this thing work.” The power cords were also described as “familiar” and “easy to use.” "
