Thanks for all the responses. I have to say I'm relieved to find out there are others out there that don't buy into the $1K or higher cable hype. When I have a total of $1700 in the speakers and amp, that just seems crazy. I'm just trying to squeeze as much detail as possible out of this now 90's system.
You might also at least try out a set of Morrow SP4 speaker cables. Make sure to get the nude wire terminations, and when you make the connections, keep as much as possible of the bare wire in contact with the contact surface area on the speaker and amp terminals. Make sure the connections are very tight.
I am using the Morrow SP2 cables with my McCormack amp, and boy does it sound good, especially in the mids and highs. It just sounds like music and has me tapping my feet and singing along. This has not always been the case with my system. I have heard many systems that sound detailed and dynamic, but just don't do much for me emotionally.
Recommendations, without being able to hear the system nor really knowing what the person asking likes and doesn't, are always tough and of limited use. I like to read between the lines. If you had written: "the Aragon just blew the Adcom away" or "I didn't really hear much difference", then I would say don't bother trying different cables. But, you described what you heard in a way ("quite beautiful") that tells me that you are probably a sensitive listener and can appreciate subtlety; it tells me that trying different cables is probably worthwhile for you. The difference that cables can make is very real; and even the +$1000 cables, in the right system, is not hype. For $200 you can definitely try a few different things that can maximize your system's potential. For your gear I like the solid core suggestion (can sound grainless and beautiful). The AntiCables are a great place to start. Good luck.
