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.

Extra Info: Smart looking and based on a very high-end kit from Greece this low profile ultra quiet MM tube preamp will impress. It has an IEC power socket on a short tail to allow the use of custom power cords. JJ 12AX7 small plate tube extend from the top with heavy tube dampeners to ensure low micro-phonics. If you have always wanted a tube head unit for MM cartridges then this is it.
