I enthusiastically recommend cables from Audio Envy. I only have their power cords. They're not expensive but the sound they provide is. 30 day trial.

Nina Simone's 'Lilac Wine' is stunning. Jeff Buckley's cover brings me to my knees. 
Female Vocals - Nora Jones new album - Pick Me Off The Floor

Non Analytical Sounding DAC Upgrade- Budget $1,500 or less
I can also recommend the Chord Qutest. I had it in my system briefly as a loaner and was mightily impressed. A friend of mine  who has had or heard a multitude of DACS hhas said that the Qutest is the best he's heard under $5000.00.
