What cable companies make the best cables and sell them directly?

I have a good quality system and I am looking for better quality cables for all connections.

Denefrips Terminator DAC
Martin Logan Expression ESL 13A Electrostatic Speakers
Pass Labs 260.8 Mono Amplifiers (2)
PS Audio BHK PreAmplifier
Sony Blu Ray UBP-X800 CD/Blu Ray Player
SVS PB 16-Ultra Subwoofer

I am looking for good quality cables sold directly to the consumer.  I am currently using no name, better than average, cables.  I refuse to pay the 100 % markup of the better line of cables that are sold through middlemen.  I am looking for companies that have had very good reviews.

This is NOT to be a discussion as to whether or not cables make a difference.

Thank you to all for your assistance.

As mentioned, Blue Jeans Cables are extremely good and reasonably priced.  A little more expensive, but also very good, AudioSensibility.  The latter typically have sales of 10-13% off.

How many people spend countless hours swapping cables but won't spend a few minutes working with speaker placement or invest in room treatments?

Cables should be the absolute LAST thing you worry about after EVERYTHING ELSE is perfected. In other words, you should never invest in high end cables unless you have an infinite amount a money or telling your friends how much you spent on cables gives you great pleasure.

buy some cables from Benchmark, or make them, and be done with it.

Not many, I suspect. Why would you think otherwise?

because I see endless debate on things like cables and very little if any discussion about optimizing a room (which includes speaker placement)

granted, I don't spend much time here anymore so maybe I'm wrong about that, but historically my view is accurate
