the music wave plus will blow the doors off the oval 9's.

I enjoyed Oval 9's in a system I had once, and I didn't enjoy two different Transparent cables (Music Wave and something else). Systems matter, but I would pick the Oval 9 based on my limited experiences.
That said, I'd look for Cardas, Kimber or Tara in that same price range. Especially if you can get some Tara stuff from the "decade" days at a bargain, it will blow away the mid priced stuff from HT and Transparent.
You might also want to try the new Synergistic Research Tesla cables in your price range. If you are seeking cables that will create a synergy with your system, and if you want to compare different cables in your system before you buy try The Cable Company- they have a huge cable lending library and can facilitate your listening experiments until you find just the right cables to meet your needs.
