Hey!! I'm wondering if anybody else spotted ads for these remarkable devices from Add/Powr?

I guaranty that not a few audiophiles with hear these devices and insist they hear sound quality improvements. Could you be persuaded?

It's both "likely to improve sound quality" (100% because of placebo) and also a perfect example of "worthless audiophool sucker bait".

So I'm not really sure what good the poll does.

Yes, but "Worthless audiophool sucker bait" is going to get all the votes, and you know it :)

Except for a few pedantic voters who go "Weeell, technically the placebo effect does improve sound quality".

Perceived sound quality ;) not actuall sq.

Do placebos have a half-life ? A measurement for these kind of product would be for how long the delusion lasts ?

Pure 60 Hz sine waves are just fine for my household power.

Isn't it wonderful, you can buy devices to remove mains harmonics, now you can buy a device to add them! And both are equally pointless.

True. But the poll doesn't make that distinction and it doesn't mention a timespan. Anything goes :D

You haven't listed the price.

Obviously the expected audio improvement is related exponentially to purchase price.
