I agree completely with the above post -- if the power supply of a particular component has been designed and constructed properly (as certainly it would be in the GS-X MkII), the difference between a well made powercord at almost any price point (really cheap ones excluded) should be nearly inaudible, unless your brain tells you to find a difference. This is not necessarily the case for headphone cables and interconnects (and maybe digital cables), since here you are connecting and transmitting signals between 2 components of a closed system which can interact with each other. This is unlike the situation with electric power, where most people have little or no control over how it is produced and transmitted, and is why top tier amp builders go to so much effort to design the best possible power supply for their unit. For anyone who remains unconvinced that external power supplies of any type can be good, then you can always go to battery power (e.g. Bakoon), but I'm sure there are people who can find problems with this approach as well.
