Perception bias is strong and silver is shiny and bright so they must sound bright, no?jdjohn wrote: ↑15 Nov 2018 00:23The use of silver in cables was mentioned earlier in this thread as adding more brightness. I'm guessing many of you here have read where someone added silver-containing cables to their system, but it sounded TOO bright, so they took them out. Obviously someone willing to spend extra money on silver cables was expecting an improvement, but in the end, they took them out because the 'improvement' was not what they desired.
That tells me that cables make a difference, but not always a good difference. Sometimes folks buy expensive cable, but don't keep it because they don't like the effect. Some of the comments in this thread suggest that people automatically like their new expensive cables just because they paid more money. Clearly that is not always the case, but it does prove that cables can make a difference, even a negative one.
