You would need to experience such system to have a well formed opinion especially with your music interests and choices.
Sadly I'm parting out similar setup (VTL MB750 , Soundlab M1 , ARC CD8 ARC REF 3) which was wired with Kubala Sosna cables. The excess of it is kind of ridicules but if I were in different point in my life than why the heck not?

Oh I'm sure E-stat can get very fine sound from his system, but he needs to do a lot of tweaking, some of it quite expensive, to get it to do what he wants. I don't have to do that.
The point is, one can get very fine sound with speakers are not very picky about what amplifier drives them or the types and cost of the cables used. Why make trouble for myself? But if you want to worry about such things, go right ahead.

Actually ,the system doesn't need any special tweaking to sound convincing. I think any decent speaker,competently designed like Harbeth, Paradigm etc will do fine without magic wires and fuses. But you know how it is -better is an enemy of good. I had this $4k piece of Kubala Sosna speaker wire. The price is not shocking anymore . I looked and looked at those thick stranded copper conductors looking exactly like monster car audio cables and thought to myself that the price is a nonsense. Did they make a difference?, sure they did, quite significant. Do I miss them? Not really, I got used to the sound of more mundane cables after a day or two. Now, had I have the luxury to keep the cables because $4k expense would be my weekly lunch budget would I keep them? Absolutely, no question about it.
Similarly, I would not be happy with a set of small boxes for the music system, either. :)
To each his own.
