Leafs, please give HomeGrown Audio Silver Lace or Silver Audio Hyacinth a try. They will redefine your perceptions of silver. Rather than being bright, tizzy, or shrill, they are smooth, liquid, and relaxed. Possessing a great deal of warmth and detail at the same time. It is difficult to find anything comparable. And the slam of the Silver Lace can be menacing. Definitely not for the bass shy audiophile. I do believe that the bad rap silver gets is more related to silver plated copper, which in my experience is abysmal. Bright, irritating, and confused.
