Are you on the right thread ALLANTE?

"However, the NAP250.2 did have a certain warmth to it, a slight opacity and impression of a hump in the upper bass that was fine on a speaker like the IBL, SL2 or SBL, but which was exactly where so many other speaker makers would give a little boost - I guess because most people tend to like it. Combined, it could be a little too much that at best could reduce the impression of pace, and at worst could make the sound a bit muddy and stodgy, particularly when compared against its junior sibling, the NAP200."

"I must admit that I have been tempted by Signature speaker cables in the past but have never tried them. I guess what I am suggesting is that you might try SL cables before you decide. I know they are more expensive than Chord Signature but you can now get SL cables ex demo and pre loved.
I suspect we may now get the usual Chord vs SL ding dong and I must admit preferences are often down to personal taste and specific systems. However I would urge you to at leat try (assuming you haven't already) SL cables at home."
That's right Nigel B, SL works for your particular System and Speakers!
But as you say, one must audition these Cables, otherwise just Hot Air!
Mr Richard Dane was just Elaborating on what you clearly pointed out!
Differences in Specific Systems:
Pre- Amps, Amps, and Speakers, which is why some may experience a positive impact with Interconnects and Speaker Cables, Whilst other may not!
That's all Nigel!
Just pointing out how Great minds, like yours and Mr. Richard Danes, constantly reminds members of the Forum of the importance of components, which are comprised in one's System!
PS. I think I got the right Thread!
Who knows, getting up in age!
Enjoy your Music Nigel#
