Default Hynes Power Supply Umbilicals - Copper or Silver

Paul Hynes offers annealed copper or fine silver umbilicals to carry DC power from his power supplies to a component - in my case 15V/2.0A to a tube DAC.

1. Looking to hear from anyone who has a Paul Hynes Power Supply and has made the decision to buy copper or silver, or better, has compared the two.

2. Any other comments welcome.

I am planning to purchase his standard SR4 model but with a 15 volt output in place of the 5 volt output. The fine silver cable is only ~29.00 USD more than the equivalent annealed copper but I really don't want to purchase both for comparison if I can get some direction from others.

Here is one relevant review: http://hifipig.com/paul-hynes-sr3-power-supply/

I have the standard cable - it's solid core copper and it's silver plated. It's pretty rigid but has no insulation. I'm thinking of trying a MCRU - I'm using one for the UpTone LPS1.2 with excellent results!
