Has anyone discovered where do you get the biggest bang for your buck when converting AMEX points into another program?

Personally, I think converting them to Singapore Airlines and then using them for long haul business class flights is the best use. 200k points is enough for a return ticket Australia to Europe or LAX/SFO. In monetary terms, and to me personally, that's worth way more than $1500 DJs voucher.

Definitely go with CX. It's has the best redemption rate out of the airlines you can choose. QF Aust->HKG is 60k Oneway/120k Return. CX Aust->HKG is 45k Oneway/80k Return.

I (or rather she who shall not be disobeyed) converts my points to Australian retailer store vouchers - Myers, DJ's, Coles etc.

It's a bit sad that Australians are so keen to collect Qantas points when other schemes offer so much more value (both in terms of lower redemption costs and lower taxes / fees).
