It all depends on how much you want to spend?
If the price is of no concern, take a look at this ad on Audiogon for a CH Acoustic X20 power cord: http://app.audiogon.com/listings/ac-cables-ch-acoustic-x20-power-cable-1-8m-15a-iec-2014-10-28-power-61820-champaign-il
The HiDiamond P4 power cord is also very good, but also pricy.
If you want a power cord without an extremely high cost that sounds really good take a look at the power cords at: http://triodewirelabs.com/index.html
I own and use all three. Im very happy with them all.
I can also make suggestions for power cords under the price range of $500 if asked.
Don't know your budget/system context, but here goes :
PS Audio P10 > PS Audio AC12 (I'm running this, cheap ~ excellent result).
Esoteric K03X > Esoteric Acrolink Mexcel 7N-9500 (a friend currently using w/K01X, superb synergy).
*Their safe/natural partners
If you decide to go all-out and like presentations that tip slightly on the weighty, natural/life-like, organic side of things, I'd do :
P10 > StageIII Zyklop/Kraken.
K03X > Siltech Ruby DC/Nordost Odin/ Mexcel 7N-9500 (fine tune to suit best your taste/preference).
You should try one of the new OCC 11 or 9 gauge power cords from the Mad Scientist. They use magnets and other special propriety items in there design. I can attest that the 11 gauge is awesome on my PS P10 Power regenerator. Much better than others I have tried. And I have owned or tried almost all of the best power cords.
AND.. the Mad Scientist's OCC power cords cost a fraction of those.
The Esoterics use Mitsubishi wiring which is what Acrolink cable are, but wiring in the esoterics looks very normal and nothing like the construction of the Acrolink Mexcel's.
I am intrigued what kind of synergy Acrolink and Esoteric gear have which i have read mentioned a few times, especially digital front end together with the mexcel powercords.
There isnt any reviews though, nor comparisions with other cables with esoteric gear to get an idea what synergy there is.
Im sure the pc9500 cord is very good, but still remains a mystery.
