Well. A few days ago I came across with this Emotiva DC Blocker, that seems to follow a similar design, rectifiers plus small capacitors.

How to Fix DC Offset and Transformer Hum In Your Audio Equipment: A Review of the Emotiva CMX-2 AC Line Restoration System - Poor Audiophile

The device is well regarded, and looking at some reviews in Amazon, etc, it seems to work in most cases. And it contiues intriging me why.
I think the answer coul be in this clever post #48 from JohanB

Toroidal Transformer Noise

Best Regards.

One thing which surprises me in the above circuit is where does all the current passes through? Through the diodes? or the 0.1uF capacitors or the Rsw?

In most of the DC filters I have seen massive capacitors in parallel like 33000uF/10V or so. Im just curious that does that above circuit works as is? how much current was actually drawn through it though.
