Less luck with the speaker wire, which I thought sounded not as distinct and sharp in my bedroom system. I have had decent success with the stereo and AV interconnects, as Audioquest manufactures some of them.
Sometimes new wire will sound brighter or more present simply because the connections are clean. I would listen for a couple of weeks and then, if you have a mind to fool around, replace it with your old stuff and see what you think. Just remember to clean the connections on the old wires with some contact cleaner or at least isopropol alchohol so you're not listening through excessive oxidation. Sometimes the value of a new component can better be judged when you remove it from the system. Have fun.
