    Out of the three manufactures who offers the bang for the buck at around 120 a cable for interconnects. I know there are several others to choose from but the place I do most business with only carries these three.

    If that's the short list, buy the cheapest ones with the nicest connectors. Perfectly performing interconnects have been made in untold number of ways: braided, shielded, coax types, ribbons, and so forth. The general rule of thumb is to keep the capacitance low but really that's only a factor if lengths get to be extraordinarily long. A couple of meters is nothing.
    Why there's no reason why interconnects as one would find in car stereo places such as Crutchfield wouldn't perform just as well as the ones you mentioned at far better price points and they even look kind of nice (subjective of course).
    For example, the top of the line Streetwires (ZN6) from Crutchfield are under $60 for a 1 meter pair.
