I would borrow some speaker cables from the Cable Company. Synergistic Research has some very good cables which I compared to Audience Front Row and Cardas Clear Beyond. Even though it was the most expensive, I ended up going with the Cardas as it did everything better in my system. I got the extended highs deep tight bass & details I was looking for. Except for one pair of interconnects & my usb cable as well as my power cables I now have a complete loom of Cardas Clear Beyond & I am very happy. If the Clear Beyond is a little bit more than you are willing to spend try the Cardas Clear .
I think mixing the Nordost with WW is a great suggestion. I’ve had luck putting the more resolving wires nearer the source and the more robust wire between pre and amp. I’d also suggest maybe picking up a pair of used Acoustic Zen Silver Reference ll interconnects as I find they are very balanced and pretty much do everything well. AZ has a liquid market so you can always just sell them for about what you paid. Have fun experimenting.
I appreciate the suggestions and will follow up. The one term I forgot to mention was holographic imaging. I feel both Nordost and WW have good detailing but Nordost has this quality of putting you in the middle of the performance I have never experienced before, combined with incredible resolution. Synergistic, Audience, Kubala Sosna, and Cardas are all companies I have been curious about.
Wireworld is good, but you really have to step it up to their Platinum line, to really experience what WW can do. In terms of other brands:
1 - Cardas. Clear Reflection and up. For some reason, I did not like their Clear and Clear Beyond power cords too much, but their Clear IC and speaker cables are top notch
2 - Synergistic Research. Atmosphere X Level 2 and Level 3. You really cannot go wrong with these for any cables. Unfortunately I don’t have the cash to try their Galileo SX line.
3 - Audioquest Storm series for power cords. Hurricane appear to be sweet spot.
4 - Shunyata, current version Delta, Alpha and Sigma (NR series especially).
Good luck. It’s fun
Anticables are on the right track but they do two things wrong. Not enough area and as all the others they overprice their junk. A "level 6" speakercable from 2.120 dollars?
Nothing beats the calm and the slam you will get from a (minimum) 7awg solid core copper cunductor to the bass, a bit thinner is ok to the mid/top.
Same with pc`s, nothing beats a solid core, starting from 12awg
