Nice link...I believe that all life form on earth evolved from some kinda bacteria......................................
I remember writing an essay on global economics, criticising it on the basis of how simple it was to solve world hunger via logic and humanity and how the promises globalisation make are not being realised by most. I failed. Second go around, I praised globalisation and how it will make life on earth better off --- passed with distinction. I became a motor mechanic after graduating.

Personally I feel it's easier to hear things like this in a speaker based system, but it also has merit in a headphone system.
Soundstage, that's how I heard the difference. As with analogue cables - wider lower mid / mid soundstage equates to a warmer cable. A wider upper mid / treble soundstage equates to a brighter cable. I believe cables, as with headphones, deal with "phasing anomalies" and electronic "resonances". Nothing changes in terms of FR as far as cables are concerned.

Stay away from fast switching inverters - high frequency hash is injected into the soundscape - very fatiguing to listen to. Look out for a slow switching, pure sinewave inverter - these are "quieter" with "blacker backgrounds" and sounded more musical to me.

Better than ac mains without a doubt.
