If it was me, I would move my listening chair to near the fireplace! On the uneven cables, my bedroom system’s speaker cables are unequal by about 6’ and I hear no effects.   
Nice vintage $2k Turntable, cartridge, and phono stage
If you are in the Oregon area I have an original Xerxes table listed on US Audiomart that May interest you.       
Who else is using old cables/interconnects, and is happy?
Late entry: Still using TG Audio HSR speaker cables, SLVR pc and High Purity i/c’s.

Has anyone heard the SimAudio 650D?
Have used my 650D for 6 or 7 years now. Previously ran a Simaudio Nova cdp for about 10 yrs. The 650D blew away the Nova. Not even close.
