    Gold is a conductor. A good conductor. This guy seems to think the gold gives it bling, but it's actually a purely functional feature. This it what happens to you when you fail science class in high school. Study. Graduate. Contribute to Society,

    ^^Very true. You probably wouldn't even notice the difference unless you were checking the cable on a meter. Definitely not worth the money. Not to mention the terrible grammar. And did anyone happen to notice towards the bottom? He refers to the other cable as "white gold".... chrome anyone?

    Silver and copper have the best conductivity.

    other cables rust, gold doesnt. But I dropped science so i could be wrong. Apart from that i cant think of many reasons to use gold over other conductives.

    I think the main worry would be corrosion, not rust.

    This is retarted. Yeah Gold is the high-end conductor for AV signals, but umm......*cough* 111 DOLLARS?!?!?!

    Not even CLOSE to worth it. These rich idiots are getting ripped off and dont even care. Uggh...

    fact is that 90% of the people bidding are bidding oni it because it looks good. in fact gold dosnt make that much better of a conducter and most deffinately dosnt worth the extra money.

    The only thing gold about it is the plugs.

    If you guys think that is outrageous, you know nothing. Welcome to the world of high-end audio/video, where 8' speaker cables can set you back $1800.oo

    Actually gold is worst of a conductor than silver is. It has a higher density (19.3 g·cm−3) than silver does (10.49 g·cm−3). Which in turn, signals (both video AND audio) travel through silver much smoother and quicker than they do through metal. Pro audio and video NEVER use gold plated wires and for the reason I stated above.

    Wow...you really serve an awesome purpose here, buddy. Pointing out one spelling error in my rushed response that I threw out there.
    Good one. Now go continue your crusade in every other thread, against ALL the 12-year olds who can't spell for S#!T...
    Because, if you haven't noticed: ALMOST NO ONE HERE CAN SPELL PROPERLY.
    Good luck with that. :lol:
