Since we are revisiting this! I love silver gold OCC quad braid custom I got from Dave at Zenwave Audio. I have a custom carbon fiber cable from Mad Scientist Audio. Also a graphene impregnated version of the same. Carbon fiber throws the largest and most layered stage. Silver Gold has the most weight and punch in the bass. Either carbon fiber is more musical They both have more warmth than silver but do not have the softer slower warmth of copper, even true of OCC copper! Silver gold. I find even OCC copperc loses information, transient speed and Dynamics comparitively. Graphene has all the detail and speed of silver gold with even more musicality than copper without any of coppers drawbacks. Most tonally balanced of all and 90% of bass weight and impact of silver gold. Happy Listening!
