Hi,

I have Cambridge 640C v2 and  640A v2.  My interconnect is Audioquest alpha snake and QED silver anniversary XT bi wire connecting Wharfedale diamond 9.1.

 I want to upgrade my interconnect. I want my system to be warmer in midrange and harmony bloom as well as sweetnes. Is Acoustic zen Oscar is a good choice, should i go with kimber's hero or chord cobra 3 should be enough. Other recommendation please

Personal recommendation QED Qunex 3 at £35 or Van den Hul's The Name at £40 for .8/metre or £55 for a 1m pair.

Don't go mad though, diminshing returns kicks in around this point in relation to the gear used. Currently using the VdH between a Linn Mimik and Marantz 6010-KI amp and it sounds good. Warm, dynamic but detailed.

The QED on the other hand works well on Samsung SACD player I have, so I have to recommend both equally well given the cost price. The VdH might shade it for your needs though and the .8m option's at a good price.
