Does the Ifi power station provide dc offset. To make sure no dc rides on my ac mains?

A few shots and some shallow initial impressions:

1).
I have only spent an afternoon in my home using the iFi Powerstation with my humble set up, i had initial doubts about the technical esoteric wizardry of it all. But color me impressed so far.
A few sonic aberrations which were distinct to my ears whilst playing music before - seem to have been addressed through the use of the iFi PowerStation.
But i still want to learn more about this device.
More to come...

2). *a bit garbled.

Still early days. My home system is a fairly basic but decent Onkyo.

With the iFi PowerStation: initial impressions -

Before with a standard power strip: it is like the difference between a low powered basic dap - when you have to turn up the volume a lot to get ‘everything’ but it is not satisfying, not powered enough. And the resolution is falsely there,
If at all.
Even with the volume turned up bits of music would still be recessed or smeared somewhat.

With the iFi PowerStation...a parallel could be that the hone system is akin to a decent dap with oodles of power and better internal shielding etc. I am probably using 1/4 less volume and hearing more intricacies of the music. It is Like the benefits of a totl dap and totl IEMs.

Less volume, more music, lower floor noise, more resolution.

It is like a choke point has been fixed in my system.

Thanks!

Just got my Power station. Very nice. I added 2 ac purifier between digital and analog. So right out of the box, more open sounding and increase soundstage. Right now im using some iems since my room is so hot. Another plus is that the chassis is so stable, I can use some of my better power cables that are stiff and it doesnt tip over.

Thanks for your feedback. Just a hint to consider, but please see if you notice anything in particular with background in music you listen to.

iFi Powerstation in full effect - pure aural bliss achieved.

Now instead of listening and noticing/wondering what was wrong with my home system i can just relax and enjoy the music

It basically works as advertised - as i have also found with other iFi products i have used.
