2 prong power cable
The Marantz uses a C18 IEC without a ground. The three prong IEC is a C14 and will fit into the C18 socket. There will be no electrical issues. 
Recommendation - Ref 3a, GMA, NHT or Fritz?
I've owned the R3A MM deCapo-i for several years. I had a pair of Carbon 7's on loan from Fritz for several months. Comparing the two side by side, I'd say that the Fritz are more dynamic and tonally accurate, especially on vocals. Bass on the Fri... 
WyWire Blue speaker cable or Kimber Kable 12TC?
It is true that WyWires builds the Daedalus speaker cables using wire that is supplied by Daedalus. This is the same wire that is used inside Daedalus speakers, hence there is a natural synergy. The real WyWires cables have a very similar sonic si...

Try the WyWires/Daedalus 8 outlet box called the Power Broker. Couple of recent reviews in Positive Feedback and Part Time Audiophile. Comes in either Walnut or Maple.

Ref 3A Dulcets vs Vapor sound
You might try Fritz Carbon 7 or REV 5. Both are in your price range and a better tonal balance than the R3A.

Has anyone actually bought a Zesto Phono preamp?
Rlw3 - Sorry for the delay in responding. IMO, the Zesto does well with all genres. George, the designer of the Zesto is a recording engineer and listens to a lot of rock.

Mbump - Sorry for the delay in my response. I've owned two EAR 834P's one deluxe and one black. I also have an EAR 868 preamp with built in MM/MC phono stage. I think the Zesto is way ahead of the 834P and is very competitive and a bit smoother an...
