What's wrong with the stocked power cord?

Sidssp - I have not run stock power cords on anything because, big surprise, I am looking for better performance.
I haven't bought any in a while; last time was when Lessloss had a sale for about $299. I have sticker shock looking at the prices now.
Clio09 and Thorman, thanks for your suggestions. I will look into them.
I used to have all sorts of power cords but for the past 10 years, I have been using only stocked simply because I honestly couldn't hear any difference. Perhaps my system isn't resolve enough or isn't sensitive to power cords, or my old ears aren't as golden as they used to be. In any case, I sold most of my power cords and used that money to fund other upgrades and buy more LPs - a far more rewarding investment IMHO.
Sidssp - I can still hear a difference at 52 years old. maybe in a few years I won't be able to and I can unload my stash of power cords over three two channel systems for a bundle of cash. Nevertheless, I am not going to pay much over 250 - 300 dollars per cord. I'll get the best bang for the buck below this price point and forego all incremental benefits above it.
