Good silver cables are extremely revealing. Many think they are cold and fast sounding but in essence they are just highlighting deficiencies up stream.
They are able to let through resolution, introduces very subtle nuances into the sound resulting in better soundstaging in the x,y,z axis. They are able to make images pop from nowhere and disappear as fast as it came.
Silver cables possess two main attributes an they are:
1. Dynamics- macro and micro- Although as said in a previous post, they introduce little in terms of a deeper or fuller bass, but you do get better decay and roundness
2. Producing the leading edge on notes, and this perhaps is what makes music sound that much more realistic and real, and why some people swear by Silver Cables.
Just thoughts after playing with cables for a very long time in home systems and recently on earphones.
