    Actually, if you want to get technical about it, gold plating actually hurts (negligibly) transmission of information. Of course, it's too small to tell how much, but it actually causes a slight loss in cables, as does a change between any material. The only thing gold plating has going for it is corrosion resistance.

    How many of you actually have composite cables that are visibly corroding? It's a gimmick.
