i have both the copper and silver interconnects from signalcable.com which were recommended to me years back from here. however after upgrading to a better amp with undoubtedly a cleaner signal path, i can't help but notice that silver interconnect has a bit of a metallic 'twang' to it. harsh would be a word choice deserving the same term. but by no means is it as soft and mellow sounding as the signalcable's copper interconnects even though it still possesses more detail and just as distinguished bass. in fact the silver cables are a notch better in every aspect- except that it also comes with a sharp coloration. pretty much every claims from every company about their silver cables always say something about how it's not going to be harsh at all. and i imagine they do their best to make it so- but is this the limit of silver as the material choice? are they innately more metallic sounding than copper?
