They are a mess to leave on your floor, but a carbon hose could hide it all.
Jantzen is a good wire but it doesn't mean that the DIY cable will be also good ...

Look in direction: Siltech. Yes they are expencieve but very good ... as you probably already know ...

If you want though to build the cables by yourself, look here:

They also provided simple guide how to build a cable with it ... To be honest, I never heard this wire in action but having in mind some other products they build, it should be more than OK ...

But have you tried to resolve this issue with 15m of distance ? I think that is crucial ...

I think that it is better to have longer balanced interconnects than speaker cables ...

I do not understand the need for upgrading power supply - but I guess it has something to do with placement of your units in the room.

That is the best way ... current cables "like" to be long - so here the losses are minimal ...

15m seems to be quite a challenge.

Long balanced connection between preamp and monoblocks and short speaker wire would be my configuration of choice.
