Perhaps they are uncertain whether it works or not.
Quoting from the link: "And by this way, we can only have 1 part being approved out of 16 parts (1/16 chance) This takes many times and we will drop all the unselected parts." Which to me says that their Build Consistency and Quality Assurance is appalling... 93% rejects. But they're emphasizing it as a virtue!

It is quite likely that the audible effect of one expensive 'upgrade' is similar to the audible effect of another expensive 'upgrade'.
Or even a cheap upgrade could be similar to another really expensive upgrade.

I replaced the mains fuse feeding my amplifier, cost 45p, do you know, it made as much difference as spending 1,000 on a new cryo-treated, OFC, Malaysian-cotton insulated mains cable.

Really! I measured it, the effect was identical!

(No difference noted either way )
