In terms of the AU 24se cables: I cannot believe I waited this long to purchase them! I am in awe at the detailed, smooth sound with enormous, layered sound stage. Given how good these cables are, they are a bargain! Especially when you compare to competitors.
I have listened to Kimber, Audioquest, MIT, Cardas and Nordost cables. The AU 24 cable system is by far the most natural, real sound I have ever experienced and well ahead of your competitors. All the best, Henry
