I have some of the t2/t4 grey boxes speaker cables from aa. the t2 bought 1 year ago have turquiose writing while the t4 have the silver writing and have the ear logo on the box. Both sets have iconn connectors. They are good for the money, usedcable.com sells used cables for about the same.
All cables are AA are not outdated, but they do buy out a lot of close-out stock cheap from manufacturers as well. If what you bought is selling for current prices they are current stock. AA always deeply discounts the old stock they pick up cheap.
When Audioquest came out with the updated version of the Slate speaker cables (which cost more), AA bought out the remaining old stock and sold them for about 35 cents on the dollar of retail. New 8 foot pairs that did sell for $225 were on AA for $80. It was a great deal.
A few years ago I bought a bunch of (new) old model Monster Stage 1 Power Conditioners for only $25 each from AA. What a steal that was. I use them on the TVs and VCRs, etc, around the house. Sharpens up the video. I also gave a few as Christmas presents for friends and family.
Chris - I think you will do just fine if you get the MIT cables from Audio Advisor. About two times a year they have a sale on interconnects and speaker cables - often from the MIT line. The speaker cables you are considering will probably work just fine in your system - even if someone at MIT mentioned that they are an older model. Also keep in mind that Audio Advisor has a great return policy - so if you find the cables don't work well with your system; you can always return them for a refund. A couple years ago, I bought several sets of MIT interconnects to use with various TV systems around my home; and they were a big improvement over the Monster Cable garbage I had been using.
