Quadlinks are a good choice.You can also try out the Kimber Kable PBJ or Hero or Silver Streak.But if you dont like the sound bright go with copper.Hope it helps,it's only my opinion.

A few suggestions. If you haven't already, replace your outlet with a good quality one. Look for a P&S with brass construction or unplated Hubbell. If you're using a nickel plated or silver outlet, your problem could be there. Next, plug the amp directly into the wall.
Experiment with the room. Try moving the spkrs. around & maybe in dramatic fashion, like way out into the room. They don't have to stay there but at least you'll get an idea of what's going on. Just a little toe in makes a big difference too. Search the archives for testing your room for liveliness & make as many adjustments as necessary.
There are a lot more little things you can do but these few things should give you an indication if there's a problem somewhere else.
Moving on to IC's, my recommendation: Magnet Wire cables. Check out the info under A-gon member Motoman.
You can pick up the outlet & the magwire IC for well under $100.00. Good luck taming your system.
a)IME, the logical, conservative plan of action would be to listen to and come to some conclusions about the Quadlink before making desicions about a second pair of interconnects.
b)Correcting highs with cables can be a more compromising solution relative to approaches like the ones added by Cody and Driver.
step it upa little and spend $150 (used) for the coincident.
this cable is the steal of century imo...other cables may have a little better lows or highs or imaging.
but this cable is very, very musical and beats out most cables on "soul & musicality" regardless of price. it really lets the music come through.
