Brand new silver power cord is bright sounding


I bought this brand new 10awg power cord with silver plating, and I am trying it out with my integrated amp. I noticed that the music is brighter (almost shrill) sounding, but otherwise very good. Could be b/c the cable needs burn in time? I have also read somewhere that cables with silver can sound sound brighter. At this point I don't know if the problem is the particular cable or not.
i have several silver plated copper powe cords. none are bright. none were bright prior to break in. there are other factors besides wire which determine performance.

as has been suggested, how did your system sound priot to uding this cable.

if you have a bright amp/pre or speakers, try other cords and see if the brightness remains.
Are you using any power conditioning in front of the power cord?

I would address that if needed first from a clean power perspective by trying a power conditioner perhaps for everything except the power amp at first and then see how everything else does from there. IF the power conditioner is beefy enough to deliver enough current to the power amp, then yu might try it with the power amp perhaps as well as an option.
The majority of silver power cords will give you a brighter and sharper sound because the timing is faster with silver cables. Also the silver conductors are thicker so it allows the speed of cable to move fast between the speaker and the amplifier. If you are using tube amplifiers, these type of cords will work very well, though you have to keep in mind with most power cords, the amps on the power cords need to match up with your amplifier and power conditioner because with most power conditioners, if u are using 10A line conditioner and you have a 15a or 20a power cord, its not going to signifcantly improve the performance. The higher amperage you have on your power conditioner and power amp the better sound stange and performance you will get out of it.
How unfortunate that a hobby created to service art is plagued by this drivel.
Robertsong, I wish there were a simple answer to your question. Perhaps the pc has settled down now, perhaps not. I have never tried an all silver power cord and presently use only copper power cords, I do generally believe metals sound different, but there are many other factors that affect what you hear. I think in interconnects, silver, especially long linear crystal silver is clearly the best metal.

All that I can really say is to buy what you prefer.
