Because in the case of sarum t for nac 282, the 252 with powerlite is better.
Is that based on actually listening to the two alternatives, presumably you are referring to the Sarum T on the source to preamp or do you mean a power cable?
Either way, although I confess that I have not done that comparison but have owned all of the bits except powerline lite (so will assume poweline full fat on the SupercapDR for the 252) or Sarum T interconnect (so read SSA) though I do have a power cable - and assuming a SupercapDR on the 282 as well, I think that I would probably find the 282 combination preferable
I do think that the differences are better heard with a 552 though
The PL Lite on my 282's SuperCap Dr and NAPSC opened up the soundstage more and made instruments (orchestral in particular) stand out better just like a real concert where even a tambourine can be heard (Albert Hall Tchkovsky Gala on 20 June). I am testing 5m Superlumina speaker cable which just builds further on the improvement trend. I have Witch Hat Din to XLR and SL IC on the nDAC to 282, and Rega Couple 2 on the Aria to 282. £800 Chord on Aria did not work.
