i can't say whether or not this upgrade is worthwhile, but at some point, it is something i will have done to my music-director. what i'd *really* like is for m.a.r. to come out w/a more reliable version of the photentiometer - an amazingly transparent volume pot, much better than the alps that replaced it for reliability reasons.
re: power cords, i use the stock cord, but the pre is hooked up to a vans evers unlimiter. as far as power cords go, i am considering making my own w/a recipe from john risch's diy cables website. i am not ready to drop big money on powercords...
dra, the alps *was* the "upgrade" for the old photentiometer. while still a nice pot, it doesn't sound as good as the photentiometer, but it's reliable. m.a.r. is considering developing a newer, more reliable version of the photentiometer, but it may never happen. :<(
dact audio, maker of excellent ladder attenuators, that have just one resistor in the signal path, are also planning on developing a remote-controlled version. this, too, would be an upgrade over the alps pot. someday... meantime, i'm not giving up my remote-control! ;~)
