With ordinary tin/lead plated PCBs, standard tin plated connectors and normal interconnecting cables.

It's easier to just buy a few of these... https://trueaudiophile.com/hb-cable-design-powerslave-marble-statement-power-center/

In the video, they spend more time on the looks than the technical aspects.  Oooo, bevels!
But it does have cork to damp the vibrations. ::)
I think the video makes it clear that this is about appearances.

What it should make clear, to any person with a thinking mind, is that this is utter bullshit.

You ever read a power cable review in what they pass off as serious audiophile journals?  It's laughable.  Some studio geeks locally have bought into the cable thing which makes me nuts.  How can you be a sound engineer and believe that some esoteric cable improves sound?

If they spend 18k on a power bar, 12k on 2 cables, they'll hear an improvement. But it's hard to describe cause it's on a molecular level. And an alternate reality.

I smell a business opportunity. Use terms like "4K Sound. Add fancy sleeves to power cables to make them look better, but also block harmful gamma rays, which can make the music sound angry. Tubes with only the heater pins hooked up - the signal "passes by" the tube to be "warmed up" physically, but never in the circuit.

As PT Barnum said, there's a sucker born every minute.

I debunked the voodoo speaker wire whohah in my Audio Mythology column back in the 80s. As I recall there was a serious treatment in the AES journal back then quantifying and debunking funny speaker wire.

If you can hear a difference from changing a line cord either it was a faulty line cord, or incompetent product design.

Phools and their money will always be a target for snake oil merchants.

There was a "hybrid" tube amp I saw ages ago that claimed to do just that. The output signal wires were coiled around the tubes in order to warm them. So I guess that bit of marketing speak wasn't totally false in their case?

Don't forget "Green" & "Eco"...

I'm getting ready to do some demonstrations for the RV industry with solar panels, Lithium-Iron storage batteries and a 3,000 watt pure-sine inverter, and offered to power a live music stage from this setup at a big RV show as a promotion for the products. One of the promoters got really excited because I would be running the stage from "clean" solar power, and not that "dirty" petrochemical power. Go figure...
