The higher the gauge the smaller the wire; smaller wires have higher resistance. There is very little agreement on wire size; some [Mapleshade for example]use very small diameter, others use larger ones. The size alone will give little indication of the sound quality. Some like silver, I use it sometimes but usually use carbon or copper; it is a matter of taste and system matching. I would get ones from a company with a good reputation and not worry much about the cable size.
