sibilance in system
does it only happen with records?   check your turntable setup if so.....or.....component mismatch, too much high frequency energy.  
Non-fatiguing speakers in $10K range?
2nd Vandersteen......make sure you set them up correctly for great enjoyment.  
Need recommendations on 15ft speaker cables
its all a crap shoot....the only way to know if a cable benefits or hinders a system to your liking is to try them in your system.  Try to buy with an option for return. I had B&W 800's or 01's. which tended to be bright.  ,,,,have Vandersteen... 
Hearing aid question
I got mine at Costco.  Make sure you have a HIFi satting you can turn on when listening to your music.   No it's not the same as good hearing, but is certainly an improvement.  
Power filtering – Furutech or Puritan Audio?
buy them both with full return privileges.....the only way you'll know.  
room setup suggesion needed
move the speakers around to different locations in the room and judge for yourself what is best  
Dynavector XV-1S
