Do silver speaker cables make a difference?
Silver demonstrates even lower resistance but the price point relative to copper is not favorable. Gold won’t oxidize on contact with air (so it’s a great plug material) but it’s more resistant than either copper or silver so it’s not ideal for cable runs.
Are silver cables better?
