Interaction is important but great cables will sound at least very good with everything unless perhaps custom made for particular speakers.

Well.... you wrote to tell us you're debating the wisdom of this purchase, which indicates to me at least that while they're good they're not worth the money. These wires are not speakers which tend to be much more in the "keepers" category or an amplifier you really love. When I bought a (demo) Rowland preamp many years ago I could afford it after saving up awhile,
and it was pretty wonderful and I kept it for a long time. I wanted a Rowland amp also, but I had to walk away because it was REALLY expensive. I could never afford the speakers I wanted either, so I waited
(and waited...). Saying "no" is no crime. Right now I'm listening to a pair of "terrible" speakers in my bedroom while I recover from surgery, but they're not that bad really. They don't play symphonies but they still do a lot of things. And my Tivoli stereo radio is a remarkable component also.
It's not Magico M3's but so what (no insult to Magico of course).
Rule #1- Have fun, but don't forget to put food on the table.
If you need to be told lamp cord is just as good, then lamp cord is just as good.
I am saddened by the fact that I cannot tell much difference between cables (when specified correctly and properly terminated). My 12 AWG Beldon 5000 ($1.25/ft.) sounds the same as my Kimber 8TC or the Nordhost Blue Heavens I auditioned. I'm jealous of all you folks that can hear these profound differences.
I can take some consolation in that my sensory shortcomings have enabled me to save enough money to buy better speakers, a new DAC, and a bunch of new music.
