so, i then bought new very thick speaker cable from hong kong, and removed the silver coated copper ones i was using. this brought through a bit more of the midrange.
then connected the main speaker cable to the mids rather than the bass terminals of my speakers. this made a very noticeable increase in the mid range that i was lacking.
in between all of this, i used a small amount of the the kimber cable i had (to make the interconnect) to make speaker jumpers to get rid of the stock plates. this further enhanced detail and resolution, and "cleaned up the sound a little.
the result of all of these changes have been getting the closest that i have come to achieving my "optimal sound". its not perfect- it will never be, but im happy with it for the moment. deep controlled bass, evident midrange (so hard to achieve these days) and detailed yet smooth treble.
I was the one who asked the question and it was interesting to read your reply. Thank for doing that.

At my audio store you can buy Kimber already interwoven by the foot and ready to connect, it is way cheaper and looks like 10000$ cables and sound superb

It just eliminates one of the problems of audio nevrosis, now you need tube dampers, isolators, a dedicated golden plated power cord, speaker spikes and tuning boxes.

It's hard to imagine why anyone would consider the Kimber PBJ a good unbalanced analog interconnect cable.

On second thought, interference could add noise at the high end and there is Common Impedance Coupling noise at the low end.

If you hear a bee in your wires there are by-bee coupling connectors.
