Cable recommendation for Classe-Sonus Faber set up

My newly set up system comprises: a Classe 301 power amp, Sonus Faber Grand Piano speakers, Electocompaniet EMC CD player and Cardas Golden Reference Interconnects with Golden Cross speaker cables.

Midrange is smooth and the highs are well extended. My problem is a lack of pace and a slightly bloated bass. I've used every conceivable tweak like moving my speakers off the wall, dampening the walls and isolating my equipment. I am convinced the problem lies in the cables, especially the Golden Cross speaker cable. A switch to a old DIY pair of speaker cables validated my fears. The bass bloat was gone but with the DIY pair, I lost all the mid-range fullness and the highs were too fatiguing.

I am at a loss at what will be ideal speaker cables to complement the Classe-Sonus set up. My listening tastes are to the warmer side - don't want to lose midrange fullness but need a tight bass and good transparency. Anyone out there can recommend an ideal speaker cable/interconnect that will match my system. My budget is under $1,000. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks.
Try a Zu Birth powercord. This cable tightened up my bass and also cleaned up the bass detail. It helped with the overall sound as well. They have a money back gaurantee if you dont like it. This cable is very affordable compaired to some of the others out there. It can also be found in the manufacturers auctions occasionally here on Audiogon
I have had a few set ups with classe and sonus faber and found mit cables to be an excellent match.
Try Alpha Core Goertz MI-2's. Buy direct from factory for a 30 day trial. I'm using between Classe 200 and Thiel 3.6 and it is head and shoulders better than MIT, Kimber 8TC, and Coincident in my system. Speed, clarity, smooth, and images like a witch...
I would recommend Harmonic Tech. Pro9.I'am using with my SF.
Grand Piano with great results., so what did you ended up with power cord or new speaker cable? I am in similar situation and would like to know.

I'm still keeping the Cardas cables. They have the 'tubey' fullness in sound that I can't be replicated elsewhere. I've tried a mix of Shunyata, Acoustic Zen and Dave Elrod power cords in my system. Would say I'm 75% with the sound I want but not found the last ounce of transparency and bass tightness. Still experimenting. Drop me a mail.
I have both Classe and Krell gear with my Sonus Faber Amati Homage speakers. I use "Transparent Reference" biwired spkr. cable.

All "Audioquest Diamond" balance interconnects.

And all "BMI Whale Elite" power cords. With perfect neutralness, and synergy in resulting incredible sound.
Hello. I am using a CA-301 with Kimber SELECT 1111 and 1121 balanced IC with excellent results. A friend has the CA-401 with the Kimber SELECT KS-1130 --just awesome!Although he is using the very impressive Kimber SELECT KS-3035, the Kimber Monocle or BiFocal X or XL are also very good and also more reasonably priced.

I am currently running a Bel Canto eVo bridged with Virtual Dynamics Power 2 cryoed pc and Stealth Premier Copper single run speaker cables to my Grand Pianos and am very pleased with bass, the detail, the lack of edginess, and the bloom around the instruments. I am also using an Aragon Soundtage and a PS Audio Power Director. The vd power cords are available with trial period as well as the stealth and both owners are great to work with.
Is there a digital cable involved in your signal chain ? If so, try a Marigo Apparition 3A and see what happens. Another way is to try more different speaker positions. They can do wonders !
