If the work is done properly, I can't see how it would make any difference whatsoever.

No way, you should definitely be able to feel and sense the difference in the tone and the timbre and the aura...

That's true, it's well known that the electrons in expensive wire sound richer.

Does augline sound better or the copper one sounds better?

I heard silver and gold are much better with sound.

You're talking a few cm of wire, so the difference is sure to be negligible.  But if spending more on silver wire makes you feel better then go for it.

As you can see, the difference in resistance between copper and silver is very small indeed, gold is actually worse (but is good for contacts because it doesn't corrode).

a lot depends on the application and quality of wire.

it may only be a few cm but in a revealing system even such short lengths may be audible.

years ago i had to replace the short headshell wires in a linn ittok tonearm after the owner broke one during a cartrige swap.

the stock linn wires were replaced with a spare sme set.

the improvement was such that i never got the spare set of wires back.
