MIT Cable Matching

Let me know your thoughts on mixing MIT cables.  Here are the details:

I recently switched to a Spectral preamp and amp system.  In the process I ended up with a mishmash of MIT cables from the used market to go with the Spectral equipment.  The source cables are Magnum M1.5, the cable between the preamp and Amp is an Oracle MA-X and the Speaker cable is an Oracle V2.3.  The phono cable is an Oracle V1.5.

The preamp is Spectral DMC-30SV.  The Amp is a  DMA-400. The sources are a PS Audio DirectStream DAC, VPI Classic 3, Sutherland Phono Block and Marantz SA-7S1 CD player.

I've talked with the experts at MIT.  They don't have any problem with mixing the cables mentioned above.  However, I am leaning towards moving to all Oracle V2.3 cables in the future.  The system sounds ok to me, but I'm mo expert!   It's just that, for some reason I don't like the thought of mixing different types of cables in a system.

The Oracles may be better, but IMO your Magnum M1.5 is no slouch. I'm happy with my mid-range MIT Matrix 36 ICs and Matrix HD 60 bi-wire speaker cables, which have really brought my system together with details and cohesiveness that really does convince you that cables should be considered as component(s).
