Don't spend the money for mini discs. The quality doesn't justify the expense. $500 is way too much. Entry level AQ or Kimber (or whatever you prefer), is more than enough, and probably overkill.

Entry level AQ or Kimber may not be enough. For $500, if you buy used, there are many. It's impossible to say which one will be the best overall.
If I wanted to do something like that, I would compare Mogami, Nirvana and the best Purist for up to $500 and see if it makes a difference. Probably will, the question is how much. New cables usually need 100-200 hours of burn-in time to fully open up.
I agree with Zd542. Beyond the issue of sound quality, the mini disc format's time has come and gone. When you can't find a single new mini disc player on amazon.com you know it's a technology that isn't being supported any longer by manufacturers or users. You would have spent weeks or months doing the digitization, only to have to transfer everything to a different format sometime in the near future.
You are absolutely correct. My apologies....Wireworld Luna 7. I must of been thinking of my other cables, Tara Labs Prism 33. Bought 2 of these .6m cables new and I think they are excellent. (Better to my ears than the 22 & 55 Prism) The WW Luna 7's are a steal. If I were to spend more than I wanted, the WireWorld Equinox's would be my next choice. For $40 1m (Luna 7) you have nothing to lose. I think you will be shocked at how good these cables are.
