There is a survey of the sonics of 12 brands of inexpensive interconnect in the October/November 2002 issue of The Absolute Sound that you might find useful. Includes Audience Maestro, Monster Cable, Siltech, Van den Hul, Straightwire, Kimber, Audio Magic, Audioquest, Tara Labs, Wireworld, Nordost and Synergistic Research; price range from $122 to $250.
No comprehensive list of inexpensive interconnects and speaker cable is complete without inclusion of the Kimber PBJ interconnect and Kimber 4PR or 4VS speaker cable. The other option you might consider is the HomeGrownAudio Super Silver interconnect (get a used version to save even more money).
I have used the Kimber and HGA products in my small office system, and they filled the bill nicely without costing too much. I acquired all of the system through Audiogon used equipment ads. (The rather eclectic selection of equipment includes: TEAC PD-H500 CD player; Tandberg Troll integrated amp; Sansui analog AM/FM tuner; Krix Equinox speakers; Kimber PBJ interconnect and Kimber 4VS speaker cable.)
I had the same problem, "cost effective" office system at work but what to use for interconnects? The system:
Proton 930 Receiver
Micromega Leader CDP
NHT SuperOne speakers
QED Silver Anniversary Speaker wire
Sennheiser HD600 headphones with Cardas wire (awesome wire)
I picked up Goertz Micropurl 1m interconnects, well made and sound good in my set-up. They can be had for about $50 used.
Just a follow up on Stu Wein's cables. He is retired and makes them himself in his shop in Florida. When Stu was in business, his MAS cables (of all types) were highly recommended by Stereophile, Soundstage, Wadia, and The Cable Company. You are basically getting his new cables for less than he use to charge dealers wholesale.
I AM NOT RETIRED. Just moved to the Florida sun. I supply Neutrik connectors to most of the high end manufacturers, and still continue to sell my mas direct only at really down and dirty cheap prices. I have a philosophy that cables are way overpriced in general and that quality products like the ones I sell direct can hold their own against the best..without mortgaging the house.Again...I am NOT retired...YET.
I bought a pair of MAS Grey interconnects from Stu Wein. The cables definitely made my system sound better, the price was reasonable, and when I had a question he provided a prompt and helpful answer. Price was about $80 for a 1-meter pair terminated with RCA connectors. If I remember right, he also offered MAS Black for $50 per 1M RCA pair. Good stuff!
