Why don't you try Acoustic Zen Satori? It is one of the best cables within this price range. I use Satori Shotgun but Adagios are not biwired if I remember correctly. You should be able to find used 12' Satori for under $450. Satori is very fast and clean but also slightly full at the lower midrange making it perfect match for my class D Rowland 102.

I run shotgun Satoris as well and agree with Kijanki. Assuming you like the sound of the Adagios, why wouldn't you at least try the cables born from the mind of the same designer (such a rare opportunity)??? Especially since they're in your price range used and you could sell them for little/no loss if you find something better. I don't get it, but best of luck.
Best darn value in speaker cables that will equally perform against cables costing $3K. Audio Art Cable out of San Diego and their SC-5SE cables. Ten foot pair costs $705.00 and are far superior to Morrow Cables. Have very high quality locking banana connectors. Check them out for yourself and the reviews. Remarkable quality.
Better value is Cabledyne. Choice of copper or silver depending on your budget. Lots of reviews now on their site (may have to try them anyway). I own their power cords and they are still serving me well.
Avondale Audio Black Link. Awesome cables from the UK for NAIM but I use them with Joule Amps and Audience ClairAudient speakers and they sound at least as good as the Nordost Frey I had in this system before. I use a 12ft run and I think there's something about them that makes them so good for long runs. Flexible too which is great. Under $300 for the 12' pair that I'm using.
Check out clear day double shotguns. Paul will demo you a pair; awesome awesome guy!
I ended up going with signal cable silver resolution because in my system, they had better bass response and cost half as much. The clear days did sound more fleshed out and better overall but at the time I couldn't justify the cost; I may revisit them someday though :-)
