You should be able to find a pair of the KS1030's(.5m)for that. You might have to be patient(may not be a lot out there, as that's kinda short). Here's a pair for sale that's slightly longer(24"): (http://www.audioweb.com/P/PInfo.asp?pid=34444) I'm using KS1130's and wouldn't bother with anything else. I'm certain there are other interconnects out there that would compare, but why waste my efforts when I've got a winner in the stable already? Perhaps if I won the lottery.....

I made a little research on these cables and got interested. The question is did you get a high freq silkiness with them? I bet you did A/B tests with different interconnects.. what other sound characteristics you would you note? Your answers are very welcome . thanks.
I've tried HGA silver lace. Very smooth, no etch, not incredibly bright for silver (and for the money, no contest). I say not incredibly bright, but they were also too bright for my solid state system though. Be curious how the HGA DNA's compare.
Trying a pair of Cardas Golden Cross right now. Even smoother high end with better low end respresentation at the sacrifice of a little detail perhaps (high end resolve is incredibly clean though with absolutely no etch, which I did encounter when demoing a pair of Audioquest Panther DBAs). Cardas seem to take forever to settle in though (even used pairs).
Mjordanas, I haven't traded out alot of cables in that paticular system so I can't help you with alot of experience in that regard.
The cd that I use to get this aspect right is: EL CANT DE LA SIBIL-LA , Malloria-Valencia 1400-1560, Montserrat Figueras LA CAPELLAREIAL DE CATALUNYA, Jodi Savall. If I can get the voice right on this recording then I'm happy. Right means that it has a very pure organic sound that has no simbilance on the very highs. This is wonderful ancient music that is recorded very well. Both the AZ Matriz and AZ Silvers passed this test with flying colors.
I took it from a dealer and found it very attractive.. so much midrange bloom and overall air that I think I now more like it than KS1030. I will make a dealer route in the upcoming days to take some purist audio, avid, van den hul to see how they compare.
