When you say "old" what exactly are you referring to?

Those are completely different lines of product that are not comparable. Oracle products are the top line. Couldn't tell you re Matrix, never used that.

MIT is one of the more difficult lineups to sort out. I have the Matrix HD 60 speaker cables and these were a big upgrade from a decade older pair of Oracle "dot" series cables. It's my general sense that the MA-X and Matrix series were both well regarded. I believe that the 350 EVO shotgun was really good back in the day, but I suspect that you will find the MA-X to be a significant upgrade. Likewise for the upper end of the Matrix series.

Aa few years ago MIT basically doubled the price on their cables. This enables dealers to appear to give huge discounts. After they did that I decided to not support them anymore.

I think the new ridiculous prices are MIT's version of the Transparent Cables pricing model. iirc a former Transparent dealer said that his cost was somewhere around 20% of retail price foe most of the line.

Plus, if you don't like all the sound manipulation via the various knobs (I hate it - all knobs are off in my use) then there has been very little improvement in the most recent generation versus the original MA series cables (just a touch more speed but you have to use the top of the line current interconnects to hear even that).
