I have not tried the standard cable that comes with the box but I compared a basic black power cord (9,95 USD) with a Transparent Plus (200 USD) and the differece was imediate. It made the sound more controlled, a little bit darker and simply more enjoyable.

I have found the CH Acoustic X20 to be the best power cord with my Spectron Musician III Mk2.
The CH Acoustic X15 is also called the Running Springs Crown Jewel HZ, in case you haven't formally heard of CH Acoustic yet.
There is a RMAF demo on Audiogon right now for half price: http://www.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls.pl?powrcabl&1324421132&/C-H-Acoustic-X20-power-cable-r
Craig Hampel (CH in CH Acoustic) very well might let you audition it before buying, just ask him.
