I will save you the searching.
The ground lift for the line out changed the tone of the amp when you weren't using the line out? Even if you were using the LO, it should either just kill or introduce noise.Some people thing it's foolish to think about a cord upgrade and I agree that you can get carried away investing in new gear. I am asking about this because there is a lot about amplifiers that I don't know or am still learning about. I used to play electric when I was young and I am just getting back into it. I have been playing an acoustic for the last 26 years or so.
I have been using a 30 year old guitar cable with my Les Paul and recently tried a new cable and found there was a big difference in the sound. Also, the Bassbreaker 15w head I am using has a "ground lift switch" on it and I noticed a big difference in sound when I engaged it.

$85-$199 it says on their site.
I bought the mercury myself, not for any tonal advantage, but just because I wanted a heavier duty cable that wouldn't break. I've had thinner power cables get damaged, so I feel better about thicker wiring. For that I think the price is worth it.$85-$199 it says on their site.
$25 for the Mercury, any color you want,as long as it's red.
"Hear the unmistakeable noise of the bar refrigerator and neon lights come through your amp with greater definition and clarity than ever before. 60 cycle hum turned into 60 cylcle bliss and stray interference pops now have a woody tone with haunting mids. I can actually hear the difference of the mechanical clicks in my true bypass pedals-like trains of tone water gushing through the floodgates on their way to tonal nirvana."-No One Ever
The cord that came with the amp is 13 awg, I guess it working fine. If I ever need a longer one I'll try out the Mercury cable.Mercury sells upgraded power cables and they are 12 or 14 gauge wire. Most amp cords are 18. Not that expensive. 65amps ships with them. Not sure 12 or 14.
Typical newer homes are wired 12 gauge on a typical 20 amp circuit. 14 perhaps in some homes.
Figure out what gauge wire is used on the PT primary. Anything beefier than that is a waste.
In the end, I'm not too sure the electrons care.
