I can recommend the cables from "Signal Cable". The silver cable is really good.

I've gone from really good contnuous cast copper to silver plated copper to okay silver to very good silver from my TT to the phono stage. What I learned was that the smaller the guage of wire (and also less wires), the less smearing I encountered. Now I use a single silver wire cable from MAC. It easily sounds the best with my system.
I have tried 3 different silver hybrid cable interconnects:
1. Better Cables Silver Serpent
2. IXOS Silver Gamma3
3. Signal Cable Silver interconnects
This is also the order of my preferences. I found that the Better Cables interconnect best preserved the detail and warmth of the music. The IXOS was similar in that respect, but a shade less warm. Both the Better Cables and IXOS seemed to get along with different speaker cables that I used (QED Silver Anniversary and Signal Cable basic copper).
The Signal Cable was a different story. I paired the Signal Silver IC with the Signal Cable Silver speaker cables ... talk about wretched excess. After listening to enough systems over the years, I find I can sometimes notice subtle differences, but almost never is there a jaw dropping experience for me. Not so here. The combination of the two produced an almost screechy effect in the highs. I replaced the IC with the Ixos Silver Gamma and things were OK again.
The morale here is see if you can audition before buying.
