This can make a huge difference. Remember that there are well established companies that special in power solutions beyond the audiophile community, so you don't have to spend much to get outstanding power conditioning. Pick up a few of these guys and you can completely isolate blocs of components in your system:

Do you own one? I'm just wondering if these make any kinds of audible sounds, whether a built-in cooling fan, or some electrical buzzing that you can hear from ~1m away or so.

I do own a few, as well as some of their power strips for other things. The units make absolutely no noise. If you have home appliances (washing machine, etc) on the same circuit as your gear, these will help out. I also work at a major laboratory, and Tripplite gear is uniqitious. Science.

Latest cable purchase that I am happy with is Wywires Silver Digital SPDIF BNC - BNC 1.5M. Sounds great in my main rig from the Mark Levinson No.37 CD Transport to the Bryston BDA-1. Did all that Wywires claims their cables do in their website "performance attributes" section:

 

- Totally silent background between notes
- State of the art realism, especially vocals
- Greatly expanded soundstage in all dimensions including the vertical
- Take the edge off sibilance (SSS’s) while enhancing inner detail
- Present instruments in their lifelike scales
- The most natural rendering of tone, timbre, attack and decay
- State of the art definition and resolution of complex passages
- Excellent low-frequency performance that belies the size of your woofers
- Virtual elimination of irritation or listening fatigue
