Remember when Pluto was a planet?
I think you missed the point of that. The location, size and composition of Pluto did not change when its classification was changed. That's all that changed, not the scientific findings about Pluto, but rather how it was classified.
I could go on and on, but there's no point.
Right, because your post conflates a change in book keeping with some kind of error. Please don't make that mistake again!
I have read a ton of different points of view on this from both sides of the fence. There are people out there who explain this "tone loss" from a scientific point of view too.
All of the science I've seen that ascribed audible tonal changes to power regenerators has holes in it big enough to drive a battleship through.
All I'm saying is I've been playing guitar 32 years and I've never liked the way any of my amps have sounded using any kind of power conditioner.
Of course in those 32 years I invented ABX and you never ever did one reliable, relevant scientific listening test, no? ;-)
I've bought a ton of them over the years hoping for the best, but just don't like them. Sorry if the scientific community doesn't like that...
Its not a matter of liking, its a matter of trying to find the reliable truth.
PS - Some of the high end guitar amp builders actually recommend plugging their amps straight into the wall. Hmmm. Ask them why.
Two pretty well known reasons:
(1) Some power conditioners reduce the unclipped power of the more ambitious power amps that are plugged into them.
(2) Some power conditioners put out power that has more technical problems than the power they presume to purify.
