Ptm, I had the same problem but settled on the Kimber Silver Streaks. Give them a try. They worked for me, and they are not expensive.

I have used JPS Labs cables with my old Planet player with great success. Ty hem out particularly the Superconductor FX also the Cardas Netral Reference might be your cup of tea I currently use it with Golden Cross in my system. Also see if you can swing the Golden Ref which is remarkable in my opinion. Best of luck and have some fun!
I compared my Rega Planet 2000 with a Meridian 508/24 player and the Rega had MUCH less definition, dynamics and detail, enough so that I am thinking of selling it to move up. I know they are not in the same price league but when you think of spending $500 on IC's and add the price of the Rega you could almost buy the Meridian used.
IMO do not spend $500 on IC's but put the money into a better player.
I hope this is not too negative, the Rega does have nice tone but is a little warm and lifeless.
I've used DH Labs, Harmonic Tech, Alpha Core and Analysis Plus interconnects with a Planet 2000. I agree that the DH Labs and Harmonic Tech interconnects are a poor match for the player. If you're looking for some upper frequency boost, the Analysis Plus Copper Oval interconnects are just the ticket. I think the Alpha Core Goertz copper interconnects were a better match overall. I'd never describe the Rega as lifeless though, but I agree with Philoet that using a $500 interconnect with a $600-$700 player doesn't make good sense.
