"Have you looked into any other balanced XLR cables, or are those three cables the only ones you have decided to choose from?"
Ive looked into others such as DR acoustics but found no info on them online. Those 3 were the ones that caught my eye from reviews and just general reading.They were at the price point/interest in each brands line.
From your description so far Tara Labs is coming out on top.
Between the three, I would agree, but since I have no experience of the particular cable, I can't vouch for it.
BTW, what is the target price point for your interface change/cable upgrade project? BTW, does your audio system feature aftermarket power cords?

From 400-600$CAD. IT got spured on after I upgraded my pre from Rotel to Simaudio a couple weeks ago. Ive never had to buy interconnects before. Dealers gave me the IC's the PBJ (all PBJ for 5.1 surround) and Neotech I have. No after market cords yet. Those I can get many models of used from someone I trust,xlr IC's however not as much.
You have a decent budget, so I'm sure you can find something that provides good synergy when placed within your particular system.
I'm in agreement about the getting the midrange right, since the vast majority of information presented by an audio playback system is within the midrange frequencies.
As previously mentioned, the weakness of many balanced interconnect cables is the typical pro audio XLR connector which sounds like low-budget rca connectors, IME. Virtually impossible to obtain high-performance by their use, IMO.
