Conductivity of metals

No audiophile reproduction is possible without high-quality conductive metals. But which metal offers the least resistance to the flow of current?

We have sorted the metals according to their suitability:

What can you see from the ranking?

First of all, the key message that silver is the best conductor. Closely followed by copper. And only after a considerable distance gold! And with further distance rhodium. Chromium can be found way down the list.

All metals that are used in the hi-fi sector. A low current resistance also has a positive effect in the audio sector. Especially when it comes to the power supply of the components. Because here, strong current peaks in the millisecond range must be able to flow to the components unhindered. A look at our table can provide valuable information. For example, a socket with gold-plated copper contacts is preferable to a hardware store socket with brass contacts.
