I like the dac/preamp format, and own the Grace m920.
Of those listed, I would only rate the Lynx Hilo possibly higher, and then only because of it's extensive software controlled I/O routing.
Check them out at Sweetwater.com and tell Paul Allen I sent you.
Bluemeanies here also has the Grace.....

Of asian lineage, but an excellent value IMO, with dual AD 1955 converters per channel.

nakamichiplugs.com...very reasonable pricing and quality made.
I purchased two PAIRS of cables from them, 12'/15' lengths with banana plugs for about $134.00 total.

I will admit I am NOT into the esoteric alumni with cables.
Perhaps on a chart, graph, or oscilloscope you can determine a difference but the bottom line is PRESENTATION...what YOU hear!
How are your ears these days?
I will bet that if you compare a thousand dollar $$$ pair of cables to a decent homemade brand or a pair of nakamichiplug.com cables for $60+ that you can't tell the difference with the human ear.
