Let me add that I prefer a warmer sound as my system is somewhat lean.

I really don't have enough info to give an informed opinion. I will say that from your post, I would suggest you live with what you have for awhile and give them a chance. If they are better in almost every way, I think you might have to sacrifice a little in the presentation. I don't think of Wireworld as lean, but rather nuetral and revealing. Personally, I like vocals to be a bit recessed, and I think that it might be something you can come to enjoy if everything else is working. My experience is that when I am used to something, a change seems wrong at first, but could in the long run be much better.
Kad are these new cables or used? Even if used, they've been idle for awhile so you still need to allow for some breakin time, but if new then you really need to cook them at high power levels for awhile before drawing any conclusions. Run them for 100 to 200 hours at higher power levels when no one is home (DO be considerate if you have pets!). Several threads on breakin are existing here for your perusal.
