From an review:
Both allow the entire signal
through from deep bass to the highest overtones, and both produced a wide, deep
soundstage and excellent ambiance recovery. Their sound was surprisingly
similar considering the wire itself was of significantly different metals. The
main difference was that the Gold's sound could be classified as
"burnished" like the sound in Symphony Hall or Carnegie, while the
Silver is somewhat "brighter" and slightly more open like some of the
newer concert halls, such as Davies in Texas or Disney in California. Other
than that, they are far superior to the best interconnects from 10 years ago,
and too close to call a difference with the best that have been in my system.
