Braided Power Cords

I haven't seen many of this type of design on the market. The Lessloss comes to mind as one of the few braided power cord designs that are prominently discussed here. I have a Lessloss. I also have another braided power cord a dealer gave me 2 years ago. It's a cord that the dealer said was an OEM. So I call it "the green cord. To this day, I still know nothing about this cord other than its light in weight, not very thick, and braided with a green sort of vinyl-looking jacket over each of the 3 braids. The dealer said this cord would be good for adding bass and dynamics to the integrated I purchased. The dealer said the cord was created by an OEM for companies like Kimber and therefore he was very closed-mouth about providing any details. He said ML Enterprises was the company???? Could find nothing on them on the net. What are the advantages of a braided design in high current applications such as amplifiers and regenerators? Reduced inductance? I have tried this power cord on integrateds before with somewhat less than optimal results, therefore it was laying in a box in my basement when I pulled it out on a whim to try with my Blue Circle integrated. I ended up trying it on my PS Audio Premier as an afterthought and my system and speakers now perform with a new openness, and top to bottom extension I have not heard before. There have been 6 power cords that preceded this "no-name generic pc on the Premier. These cords are by names we all know and more expensive than this generic cord which according to the dealer retailed for $150. This has upset the apple cart for me. Why would a light-weight, braided, somewhat thin power cord perform so well in a high current application?
Out of curiosity... does the cable use solid core or multi-strand wire?

Mingles, I have no idea. I never asked the dealer back when he gave me the cord. I recently emailed him to try and get more details and await a reply.
A braid is going to have lower capacitance and higher inductance then the same wire in a twisted or a starquad geometry. While it will have some shielding due to its geometry it will be less then either of the others mentioned. A lot goes into the synergy between the wire itself, the geometry used, the ends that are used and lastly how well it mates with the component it is paired with. I think it is more coincidental then anything else that the two pcs that suit your taste (in the end it is all subjective) and work well with your gear are both braided design. And as you have found out higher cost doesn't mean it is better for given system...
Thank you for the detailed response Cpk.
