Are you proposing that the stretch of wiring from the
generator to the outlet in the wall is not "seen" by
the component?  Why not?

Well, *somebody* needs to speak with authority in this
discussion.  To make the claim, that the vast majority
of influence that electrical power makes over the sound
quality put out by an audio device is made by the
power cord, is an extraordinary claim.  It would be
interesting to hear something that might back up
that assertion.  When someone makes an extraordinary
claim, it's not sufficient for him to to simply say
"Prove me wrong."  That's nothing but sophistry.
