Just bought a BAT VK3(not the 'i') and need to replace all cables with XLR's.I have a Krell 300cd and Classe 201 pwr amp/martin logan SL3's/MIT2.I have about $500,and I'm considering,MIT,TARA LABS,AMAZON.........I listen pre dominately to Jazz/Classical.
If you are considering the AQ Amazon, look also for AQ Diamond X3 or (if you can find it) AQ Diamond Extreme. Pretty close to the Amazon, and pretty "reasonably" priced in the second hand market. I use AQ Diamond X3 in my system, which is built around a BAT Vk5iSE
I second Audioquest. They work well with BAT. Dragons are great, but definitely out of your price range. Find used Emeralds or Opals. They are under 150 /pair used. While you are on that consider changing those dreadful Mit2’s to something decent.
