Remember, in a capitalist system the price is simply what people can be persuaded to pay. For some reason people are happy to pay a lot of money for silver or silver-plated wires, when the science says that this can make no difference below VHF frequencies.

Use whatever makes you happy.

Can someone recomend what would be the best material for low loss signal for diy RCA Connector?

How about differential thickness of the plating on the rca?

Am also wandering about this high price high end product in the market will sounded like on RCA connectors and on AC Power cord i.e. palladium, rhodioum, red copper, gold and silver.

Would be very happy anyone can share this experience or formula for our better understanding. Tq.

For better understanding Google skin effect. The formula you find will show you that silver plating has no effect at audio frequencies. Gold plating on a connector, if thick enough not to wipe off on first use, can help maintain low contact resistance. For wire the best compromise for flexibility and conductance is copper. Astonishingly, that is why we use copper wires.
