If the silver wire you have is oxidizing that fast, it may be
sterling silver. This does not work well at all for audio
cables. You will need fine silver (99.95% pure) or higher
purity silver to sound good.
To remove silver oxide, put boiling water in a glass tray
with aluminum foil in the bottom. Then add some baking soda,
about 1/2 cup to one quart water. Then immerse the silver.
The oxide will move from the silver wire to the aluminum
foil almost instantly.
If you want a good interconnect kit, go to empiricalaudio.com
and look at theirs.
