In Reply to: RE: I hve never found silver interconnects to be of much value posted by Mick Wolfe on March 04, 2017 at 09:38:50
With tongue in cheek I say never. Why would I need to ever have tried anything to know exactly what it is doing?
Cable with black insulation are 'dark'. With red are strident/hot etc.
This is obvious.
Actually I tried Kimber KCAG years and years ago. A few years ago I sold my two KCAG pair to The Cable Co for about what I paid for them.(used)
I have also tried to make some homemade 'who knows what/were the wire came from' silver IC to find it was no better than ordinary copper.
Basically I am saying silver is NO BETTER than copper. And since silver costs many times the price of copper.. Why bother.
Note I never wrote it was 'bright' or sounded bad.
Just it was no better, and price wise a total waste of money.. IMO.
O.K.thx. I'll scratch Kimber KCAG off my audition list.
Cardas Parsec is about $360/meter pair.
It is far better than the KCAG (and was the reason sold the KCAG)
I would highly recommend Parsec to anyone at that price point.
I replaced all my IC with Parsec two years ago.
And just recently upped to a few Kimber KS1116 KS1016 at $1,000 a meter pair.
I still use the Parsec too. In fact the Parsec and Kimber KS1116 have a kind of synergy I like.
And that's what it basically boils down to.... finding the cable that bests synergizes with your system. That being said, for some that could be a silver based cable as opposed to the Parsec. No one size is going to fit all in this silly hobby. Last I counted, I had at least 5 different metallugies going on in two different systems. So as I've said in my reply to Duster below, I'm open to anything that sounds good to me regardless of the metal involved.
