Since the OEM power cord on the SP10 MkII is naught but standard "zip cord" that is identical to what is found on the typical table lamp, I would imagine there might be some benefit to upgrading it. However, I am a believer that the typical IEC connector, which permits interchangeable power cords, can defeat the purpose of power cord upgrades. So I bought a length of XLO power cord from Michael Percy and just spliced it onto the standard MkII power supply cord, about an inch away from the chassis. Thus the XLO cord is in effect hard-wired to the power transformer. I of course attached a fancy plug to the other end, probably a Hubble. (Don't have my MkII any more, so cannot say for sure.) In truth I have absolutely no idea whether there was any benefit to doing any of this, but it made me feel better.
