Siltech ST-18G3 or slightly more the SQ-28G3.

I sampled some Nordost rca's and I too found them a little "brittle" sounding. Don't think the kimber would be appropriate in your system (sampled a Kimber in the same session as the Nordost). Favorite cables in my system are: IXOS, Bradley(no longer made), JPS ultraconductor, and Wireworld Oasis III. IXOS and JPS are phenomenal but are slightly laid back compared to the wireworld which has a little more aggressive bass and dynamic slam to it. My cd player and speakers are leaner and more aggressive than your's so the JPS and IXOS are perfect for me but I'm thinking the Wireworld Oasis III would be perfect for your setup. Riveting musicality and used should only be around $35 and I guarantee will destroy the Nordost.
Phil, It almost looks as if you're hunting for a woman (smooth-tight-warm). I don't want to change the topic (inter-connects with distinct colourization) but would also like to query everyone as to what are considered the most transparent cables in the same $100 to $200 price range. So far I prefer coaxcail inter-connects like the WireWorld Polaris III's but would like to have everyone's input. Thanx.
thank you everyone,
It is amazing so many people (all with different systems) and so many different cables.
The only cable I have tried is the LAT and it is nice but I still had Nordost in the system and could not really tell. It was a little smoother to be sure (nicer high end) but not any more detailed or any better in the bass in my opinion (in my system).
I am leaning toward Wireworld or Siltech at this point.
Does any one know about Analysis Plus Interconnects? I know a lot of people who have Maggies love their speaker cable with them. I was hoping to hear some people recommend their ICs and would make my choice easy. Maybe they are not as warm?
