When you say "too expensive for me" do you mean they are more than you had hoped to spend or does it mean you really don’t have it? If it’s the second, OK, but if it’s the first, sometimes you just need to bite the bullet and realize your musical taste exceeds your projected budget. It has happened to me many times. Once you can appreciate what a good component can bring to your system, sometimes you just need to stretch. $1100 is not a lot of money for something you describe as "amazing". All this said, It's probably not a bad idea to go with a lesser cable by the same company, but the thought of the better one will be nagging at you. Then you will sell the cheap one at a loss and buy the better one after the price went up to $1250. Good luck in either case.
