I recently used all Kubala Sosna Emotion cables in my system with the exception of a very long run of NBS Omega between my preamp and active crossover. The result was excellent. Ultimately I replaced the NBS run with K-S for a slight overall improvement, but I'd say the Omega was neutral enough to show the strengths of the K-S, and worked well with it. These are two fine cables, but with different overall tonal signatures; ultimately I would advise either going all NBS or all K-S or another brand, depending on your preferences. One thing that seems germaine to your experience that I should mention is that when I first listened to the Kubala Sosna in my system I had (top of the line) Emotion cables on my satellite speakers and (next step down) Expression on the woofers and was bothered by the bass; turns out when I replaced the Expression with Emotion it all came together. The NBS Omega line may be such that mixing Omega I and III might not be an optimal match, but putting cables of the same level might work much more synergistically. Just a thought.
