I have used the Synergistic Power Cell 10 SE version 2 for many years before getting my D800. But after getting my D800, I found that it has very little improvement on SQ so I got rid of it. I think the D800 is such as amazing product that it is hard to compare and needs very little extra cables or power conditioning to make it better. However, I do keep all the active cabling system from Synergistic research. These cables add, expand the sound stage just a bit. I can live without these cables but I don't have the need to experiment with other cables. I am very happy with what I have and learning to enjoy the beautiful music. So I am keeping these cables.
My experienced dealer does not suggest any power conditioner for the Devialet, he says it reduces dynamics. I tend to agree.
