See, I can't quite decide what you dislike more, the price (admittedly high) or the very concept that a mere cord (!) could make more difference than "a transformer, or rectifier or filter". There being no evidence offered, I'll just have to note that on all wide-range high-resolution audio systems I've ever heard, specialty power cords have wrought major improvements. Granted that's just observational data, but it's the only data so far.
Perhaps we shouldn't discuss audiophile products in this forum as most people in this forum have to struggle to find $1000 to spend on a Nakamichi Dragon, we don't need them to have the angst that they need to spend another $1000 on the power cord or they'll be missing something. They will get far more improvement out of the purchase of a Nakamichi Dragon or a CR7 to play their cassettes than changing the power cord on their Sony cassette machine.
