RE: Question about power cords/two-prong IEC inlet

"Would I be getting the cord's full effect on a player without a ground prong in its IEC inlet?"

There should be no audible/electrical issue due to the ground wire not being connected to ground at the IEC component end. Some folks may be concerned about ground conductor resonance due to it floating on the component end, but I've never audibly noticed such a thing.
