What? tried// why I LOOK at silver and know it is bright. It is just 'too shiny'...

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.
