Default Re: Which cables to go with my Bel Canto digital amp?

My favorite cables that I've used with Bel Canto thus far go as follows-

1. Transparent Reference
2. Cardas Cross (AMAZING midrange)
3. Mapleshade (depending on the album I prefer them to Cardas)
4. XLO/UltraLink
5. DH Labs
6. Monster (say what you will, they are my go to cables in a pinch)

I'm considering at the moment Wavelenght Audio Equinox 5.2 and Transparent Musicwave.
And also the Linn K400 which are similar to my old VDH (in weight too).

I'm looking for neutrality.

The Linn cable if just packaged wire, nothing special in my mind. It does make tri-amping a little easier as you can run K600 and all the wires are in one unit, but it's nothing special.

After long searches these are the final candidates (in order of price):

-Kimber 8TC (used, very cheap, I could buy a short pair just to try)
-Audience Maestro (new)
-Cardas Cross (used, hard to find)
-Straight Wire Maestro or Virtuoso (used)
-Audience au24 (used)
-Tprojectcable (reference, new, custom made in triwiring)

Bel Canto also sells their own cables which are made for their products by Cardas. Just another option.
