I ended up with Tara The 2's for speakers and IC's. Audioquest and Kimber Select were also very good. The SL3 is a great speaker. Looking at your system, though, I say don't waste money right now buying cables. Upgrade your preamp, or maybe even your source. Cables will make a difference but a new preamp or source (maybe even a CD player with a volume control), will completely transform the sound of your system.
