It's really quite simple. You think you hear a difference between two power cables. There are, legitimately, two possibilities: A. There really is a difference. B. There actually isn't, but perceptual bias
makes you think there is. (I am assuming you agree with the literature that perceptual bias is actually a thing.)
Fortunately, science provides us with an extremely simple
experiment to work out if it's A or B. Throw a great big sheet over the whole thing
. If there really is a HUGE difference (in caps for emphasis, like the post somewhere above), you'll be able to pick it 100% of the time in a random double-blind test
So there you have it. It's very easy to prove either way.
These cables are expensive. Consumers have the right to know. If anyone has a problem with blind tests, please explain why. Or alternatively, explain the method
you would use to test any old crazy claim (e.g. I have read in an audiophile magazine that amplifiers sound better if attached to helium balloons, in fact it makes a HUGE difference... they have to be expensive to get the full effect, and the shape of the balloon needs to be matched to the speaker and amp.)

Oh please. Have you heard my system driven by 850 watts of Class D amplification? No? Didn't think so.
