If you want to gamble, check out PartsConnexion. Talk to Chris. He has Cardas Legacy cables at great prices (50% off list). I could not resist trying out what was at one time Cardas’ primo IC offered at 50% off (Golden Reference). Older Cardas cable is frequently talked about as "warm" (though not always justified, I think). I think there’s a bump in the lower midrange as opposed to high end being rolled off. Cardas Golden Presence should be within your budget. Cardas 300B Microtwin would be another option, though some will stick their noses up at its (supposed) lack of detail, slowness, blah blah blah. Not sure you want to go all the way there but it’s another very much lower cost Cardas option. Parts Connexion shipping was only $14.95 to the US and I got it the next day.
