Got a link for said cord(s)?

There are a lot of places which sell them.  Here's a 6'7" long, 14AWG Shielded power cord for $9.

Or go with the 6'7"  (2M) 16AWG Shielded for $6.58
https://www.alliedelec.com/volex-power-cords-17602-10-b1/70115978/

These are an upgrade from what many companies include as stock power cords, some being just simple 18AWG unshielded cables.

The GiFT is fantastic with my 45 and 50 amps.

A miracle has occurred. . I agree with Speedskater.... :thumb:
For the op. any decent powercord is going to work. Some may change the sound a little.
My favorite is Pangea. Generally the quality is better than the same cost in home made parts.Wattgate basic plugs $13 and $20 some decent wire $8 a foot DH Labs Say you buy 6 ft $48 plus plug is  $81  when you build it yourself. For $80 you can get a 2 meter Pangea AC14 SE Signature.I would recommend either one...
I use them. They are pretty good for $80.Though with my DH Labs $8 ft wire I use Furutech $130 a pop plugs.
Everyone has a favorite. It is the way audiophiles are.

How true. Power cords make a difference especially on digital. I but used power cords and try to keep the price around $100.

Look at used Moray James cables - individual out of Canada.  He weaves the cables with excellent effect and cryo treated copper. 

Excellent value.

I moved on to more expensive stuff.  But also have a low watt system.

Any recommendations for a (4W SET amp) power cord. I am looking to buy a power cord and would like some input. Thanks

Empirical Designs - specifically sell two models one of which is for lower power components. Not to be confused with Empirical Audio...

Hey!

    My own home brewed Carol 12ga/3 rubber jacket from Home Depot, Leviton 20A plug from also from Home Depot and cheapest Wattgate ICE on the other end feeding my PS Audio P600, the outlet is the original PS Audio 20A outlet of which I think they are now call "Classic" The reason for 20A plug and outlet is that my previous apartment has 20A outlet, sadly my current apartment doesn't have one  :cry:

    If you ask me... don't go crazy and spend big money on this. Yes, I have tried a few cords and some pricey ones. They do have they own sound, but at the end of the day I pretty comfortable going back to my cheap home brewed power cord. Maybe because I have been using this for over 12+ years now. Yes, I also made my own speaker and interconnect cables for my system too.

    But if you are going buy, look for a place that let you return them if you don't like them. Good luck!
