I have been thoroughly happy with my Inakustik Reference NF-2404 AIR. They are super revealing. I love their presentation.

A pair of Kimber KS-1130 interconnects have handled the feed from my BAT VK-D5, to my preamp, for quite a while Never have I felt the least bit of information was missing, from my music, nor- any colorations added. Not that they’re that costly, but- if I had much of a windfall, I MIGHT include a pair of Kimber’s KS-1136, in my spending. I’ve made myriad changes/improvements, everywhere else in my system, but- never have felt compelled to replace the KS-1130 pair. They spurred the purchase of a KS-1030 pair, for the phono stage to preamp run. They’ve remained, too.
How do you like your DCS Bartok and Cayin HA-300 combo, by the way? I currently own the HA-300 (Psvane ACME 300b + Sylvania 6SN7W metal tubes) + Chord Hugo TT2 + LCD-3, and would be interested in upgrading to the Bartok sometime in the future.
What do you find is better/worse/different listening with your LCD-4 from the HA-300 vs the Bartok?
@pauljenkins - the phrase "A healthy budget" tells us nothing really. But if you want a cables that will perform very well take a look at KLE Innovations. Or take a look at Nordost.
Both brands command a "healthy price" so they should fit the bill. Both are also very good.
For a more affordable cable try this one, but give it a couple of hundred hours to burn-in before judging
Hope that helps - Steve
Do not dismiss Mogami Gold XLR Cables. Originally, I installed them just to be able to use the Balanced hookups between my amp and pre (I had an extra 3 ft pair from an old set of studio monitors). I was going to research and purchase an "audiophile" pair. The sound was an improvement and I really have not had the desire to upgrade.
