When I had my 1072, I used a Signal Cable MagicPower Digital Reference and was very happy. Excellent "bang for the buck" cable.

Thanks. The Signal Cable Magic Power Digital Reference looks reasonably priced at $69.00 for 3' and then $7.00 for each additional foot. Just in my budget. The Audioquest NRG-5 is way out of my budget ($455.00) but I appreciate the recommendation. I was thinking of the NRG 1.5 or 2 for about $105.00.
What I'm looking to enhance is the overall soundstage and bass extension of the player by upgrading the AC power cord. Would I get that improvement with the Signal Cable Magic Digital Ref or the NRG 1.5 or 2.0?
Find a used Synergistic Research AC Master Coupler, if you want a real improvement in those areas. They aren't that much more expensive, and it's a cable you can keep using when you make further upgrades to your system. Or a Zu Bok, for a less expensive alternative. I've found that every component in my system responds differently to powercord brands/designs(The only two components I own from the same company are my Cary Monoblocks). Each unit in the audio chain has a different requirement, whether current demand or noise/interference cancellation(to or from). I wouldn't expect one cable(brand or design) to fulfill every demand well, in every application.
