RE: Power cords how does it improve / degrade the sonics

To begin with, it is best to consider a power cord as the first several feet of the power supply section of an audio component rather than the last several feet of AC wiring from the power station. Once one wraps their head around this notion, it's easier to get a handle on what's involved in the affect of a power cord and the entire AC delivery system for an audio application.

The most succinct explanation is to consider a power cord as an integral aspect of the power supply section of an audio component, and the entire AC delivery system from the AC outlet installed at the wall, and beyond. There is no dividing line that makes a power cord somehow removed from the function of an audio component and a system as a whole, because it is the entire AC delivery system that affects the signal chain. The nature of the power supply section for an audio component is a vital aspect of how an audio signal is formed within a system.
