Electronics guys... we have our plusses and minuses. With advent of digital everything, we're being phased out

I am glad you noticed the same thing with lower purity silver. Yes, liquid mids and cohesive treble do come with HIGHEND silver cables. I also like Kimber silver cable. I am using the Kimber D60 Illuminati now and finds it clear, transparent, very personal and not thin at all. Until recently, I have been afraid to use silver with full size headphones-the likes that you have (HD800, LCD2, ED8LE) for fear that I may loose that full body sound and bass reduction. But my recent experience with a certain silver cable lead me to try it with my LCD2. I don't like to jump to conclusion, so may be in another month or two, I'll share my opinion on this new find. Another take I have on silver is that I do not like silver plated copper. To me they don't have the full characteristic of good silver or good copper, somewhat like a lukewarm attitude. So far, I have been using ALO chain mail 8 wires 18 awg cable for my LCD2 and I have been happy with its performance (full body, solid bass). However, ever so slightly I wanted a little more with its treble (more air and more smoothness) but retaining the characteristic of the ALO, I hope I'll find this in this next silver cable.
The Q Black Magic makes what you describe happen for me.
