I have got very good results with Signal Cable. Highly Recommended.

Watch as the list of favorites grows to include every interconnect brand advertised on Audiogon.
When it comes to wire, you cannot rely on any opinion other than your own.
Buy a pair of a few brands that offer in-home trials or a 30 day return privilege, and compare them for yourself. There is no other way to determine which interconnect will be satisfactory to you.
I have had the GA-0's, Signal cable silver, Reality cable, Vintage Audio Labs, Blue Jean, Anti-Cables, just to name a few. After listening to the Morrow SP3 and SP4 speaker cables I think the MA3 or MA4 could be worth an audition. Out of the ic's that I have had the GA-0 is the smoothest but maybe not the most musical or open. More of a laid back sound with nice deep bass. I imagine that the Morrow MA3 or MA4 would throw a very big stage with nice smooth details like the speaker cables do. See if you can audition a few. LARMV (Like Always Results May Vary)
There is a lot more than just the amp than can cause the brittle highs. You could try a good isolation transformer down the road. Maybe the hospital grade Tripp Lite. Even if you have dedicated lines you can still have a lot of emi/rfi irritating the components. It is a magical mystery tour when it comes to cabling. A well shielded power cord on the cdp can reduce the sandpaper sound but at the same time can congest or comprimise detail. For the money the iso tranny is a pretty good way to go. They are better than some of the power condtioners out there and still give you the surge protection.
I agree with JP1208 and David12... both Ridge Street Audio and Morrow Audio (imho) would be excellent cabling to start because of the quality and money-back (if not satisfied) listening period both mfgrs offer. In addition, both Robert (RSA) and Mike (MA) are excellent people all the way around.
With both cables give them the essential and appropriate burn-in time to realize the full potential of these cables. An Hagerman Frycleaner will speed up that process. Hagerman burn-in devices are the way to go (imho) when buying new cables or realizing the most from your existing cables.
