I saw Zaolla silver interconnect cables at NAB this week. I've never heard of them before, but they are reasonably priced for silver. Anyone ever hear of them or have them?

Never heard of them, but I would like to remind you that the conductivity of silver is only negligibly greater than that of copper. It probably does not make a difference for an audio system.

I'm also of the belief that silver cables are not overly superior to copper. The critical point seems to be construction like single strand vs wound and zero oxygen. The best speaker cables I've ever tried were solid copper, zero oxygen flat cables. They were a pain in the arse to work with, but the difference was noticable on decent speakers. I'd assume the same theories would hold true for interconnect.

Practically all copper in all cable sold today is oxygen free. You'd have a hard time buying lamp cord from Home Depot that wasn't oxygen free.
