Dynamics and resolution...

Recently went through the power cord circles. After a few I ended up finding the Shunyata Delta NR the most pleasing. One on my receiver and one on my amplifier.
Prior to going with the Delta NR power cord I had been using Voodoo silver over copper style power cords. They were very good at almost everything. Especially for the price. In the $400 range I wasn’t sure what to expect.
However, the two faults I had problems excepting were lack of bass control and the were somewhat clinical.
The Shunyata were twice the price but I feel they are far more than worth it. My problem is, even though I feel that the Shunyata have a much wider, fuller sound stage with much better control I also miss the dynamics and extension the silver over copper of Voodoo provided.
My intentions were to replace the Morrow Audio interconnects and speaker cables next and go full Shunyata loom. Now I find myself having second thoughts and possibly going to another manufacturer for interconnects and possibly speaker cables that manufacture in silver over copper (no solid silver) in order to try and recover some of what I lost going to Shunyata. 
Thoughts or suggestions on affordable silver over copper interconnects to try? Company that produces solid copper interconnects that provide high resolution and extension?
Any help is appreciated.

Exactly which $4000 power cord and what $12000 interconnects did the Anticables beat out?
I had noticed/read about the Anticables over this past winter. My concern with them is simple lack of shielding. In my system everything is in close quarters. When I contacted Anticables to ask two questions one in regards to a direct comparison of their design compared to another the only answer I received was "I don't know". It didn't instill great confidence so I moved along. 
Looking in to the Audio Art. Thanks. 

I only use the Venom HC to power my Shunyata PS8. Stepping up to the Delta NR line on my receiver and amplifier has had an enormous difference. 
I do remember reading a write up in regards to doubling the interconnects. Quite possibly yours. AQ adaptors using half twist to even out signal travel distance if that's the one.  I wanted to experiment with it quite badly. My issue is that I use a Marantz 7012 for a receiver out to the amplifier. The Marantz RCA outs are extremely close together. I did not feel it could be done safely. 
I reread the article. I see there was a voiced concern in regards to going this route between active preamp and amplifier. It appears you were using a passive preamp at the time. Have you since then experimented with active preamp? I use a Marantz 7012 AVR out to external amplifier. I am aware that Audio Sensibility sells interconnects constructed using your method/design and had considered trying them until reading your write up.
