RE: One doesn't have to actually try the silver wires.

I agree that pure solid core silver wire tends to sound mellow, with no intrinsic brightness other than a goodly amount of treble energy, which can reveal other elements within the signal chain that contribute to a perceived brightness in playback. Otherwise, the reputation of silver causing brightness tends to be silver plated copper wire with an unclean sounding top-end as the chief offender, or perhaps a poorly designed/implemented pure solid core silver cable with a tipped up treble characteristic. YMMV
