Comments from Andrew from Holton Audio below.
The DC Blockers I make use very large storage caps 400,000uf total, This ensures you get the best possible power transfer for high powered amplifiers.
Also the caps I use are very low ESR or Effective Series Resistance and very high ripple current rating, this means The DC blokers does not become a resistor to imped power delivery to your power amplifier and it can handle 2500 watts without a problem.
Most if not all DC Blockers on the market at not designed correctly and actual make things worse in terms of sound quality, the one I make does not.
Here is what one of my customers had to say about the one I supplied to him.

Made by the legendary Mark Houston of SNA and Melb. Audio Club fame - hope he doesn't mind me using his description!
All mains these days contains some levels of DC current. Most solid state amplifiers and preamp contain toroid transformers. Even a tiny amount of DC will strongly effect toroids and reduce thier ability to work to optimum. They will pass though noise on the mains instead of blocking it. The effective inductance of the Tranni is reduced. It can also cause some to hum or buzz.
The DC Duffer blocks all DC from entering your hifi gear. The blocker also contains a ferrite choke on the mains lead to reduce RFI and a mains filter inside to block RFI/EMI. It is fuse to carry 900W and is a ABS enclosure for safety reasons. The blocker will also stop noise from switch mode power supplies getting into your gear and noise from you gear entering the rest of the house wiring.
I have recently purchased a power conditioner board so no longer require.
