My HT below:
Pioneer Elite Kuro PRO-151FD 60"
Pioneer Elite bdp-23FD
McIntosh MC8207 Amp
McIntosh MX121 AV
Comcast HD cable box
B&W 802 L/R fronts
B&W 804 L/R sides
B&W 805 rears
Elemental Designes A7-900 sub
SurgeX surge protectors (SurgeX XF2, two SurgeX SX1120RT's)
Looks like a pretty impressive equipment list to me.
The sound quality of any audio system depends on the room it is in, and you have presented no information about that. Regrettably there is a lot of great equipment that looks great in a great-looking room with very poor acoustics.
According to the MIT site, they appear to have 16 different models of speaker cables that are available in stores and 19 different models of speaker cables that are available in stores. There is a possibility that some will make an audible difference and some won't. Since you have not said which models you are considering, the analytical task that you have presented (35 different models of speaker cables) is bewildering, to say the least.
The MIT cables contain electrical networks that may be sufficiently disruptive to the flow of current through them that they would actually make an audible difference.
Also, should I add another amp to power the sides and rear and let the McIntosh MC8207 power the fronts or move up to the McIntosh MC501 monoblock?
Its not clear that the MC8207 is or is not capable of powering your system without audible clipping, since we don't know what SLP levels you generally listen at.
Also how does JL Audio subs compare my my ED A7900 sub?
That's a product of Elemental Designs, right? Check this out:
