Upgrade Interconnects/Cables or…?
@kennythekey If you can make some tweaks to your existing equipment and get what you are looking for, it sounds like a win-win.   
Speaker Cables For $300
I can also highly recommend Zavfino Nova OCC  $299 First come, first served. This is a no brainer @brylandgoodman, and $1 under budget.  Zavfino Nova  
Upgrade Interconnects/Cables or…?
I can't believe what happened. I was changing around my system and needed cables a little longer than 1m. I wanted silver coated cables for sound quality and searched amazon. And there they were... 4ft silver coated cables.... the price made me t...

Apologies to the OP for my question, but @audphile1 I wonder since you seem to love the Nordost Tyr 2 XLR's, have you tried Nordost Norse speaker cables in your system?   
Speaker Cables For $300
These sound better to me than a silver coated copper set.  Nordost Odin 2 speaker cables are a silver coated copper set. I wouldn't think they sound better than this.  Point is: no 2 sets of silver coated copper cables sound the same. Too many...

Your system resembles mine in the fact that I also have 4 different interconnects  Have you played around with their placement in your system?  You don’t mention power cables, and in my experience these can have a greater effect than interconnect... 
Cardas vs Cardas vs Shunyata interconnects
......you can definitely find outstanding interconnects that outperform those overpriced interconnects from resellers. How hard is it for @classicrockfan to understand if this were true we all would be doing it.  Oh and I write posts on this ...

@soix  These @ links used to autofill and turn blue, but as of recently for some unknown reason that doesn’t happen anymore. It is a short term glitch I am told.   
Interconnects priority
My system only has one pair of interconnects.  I believe the simpler the system is, the better it sounds. @carlsbad (links don't seem to be working...) I would think if that were your philosophy, you would be considering the Grimm LS1 speakers... 
Power Cord for Accuphase Amplifier
So observation is key and the more experienced and educated you are in it the greater will be your ability to observe and describe the effects on a system of different pieces of equipment. Wait, are you trying to say in order to hear the differ... 
Speaker Cables For $300
these are still here:  Satori shotgun    
Interconnects priority
Or, looking it from another practical budget perspective, if I have a total of of $1,000 to spend is it clear that I should spend $500 on each XLR pair, or should I “overweight” my spend on one set because it’s the more “important” interconnect f... 
Puritan vs Nordost Power Cable
Anyone else done any comparisons of a different power cord to their ultimate cord on the PSM156 ?  It is the only C19 cord I have, so hard to compare with others.   
What speaker cable for Martin Logan motion series (AMT) tweeter.
@bobrock  ^^^^ Yeah what @soix said above, when you said $1000 budget the first thing that popped into my mind was that is exactly how much Satori’s retail for. Grab a used double-set for the same price
