Positive reactions to the rhodium RCAs inspired me to get some rhodium plated, silver subplated dual banana plugs manufactured (the RCAs also have silver subplating). Below is a link to the eBay listing for the dual banana plugs. If there is demand, I'll get more made and start a new thread for them.

Yes, highly radioactive and very dangerous. But it gives the sound so much "energy" that once you've heard it, you can't live without it.

Rhodium is a transition metal, an element in the platinum group along with that metal, iridium and palladium with others. The radioactive elements (except astatine and radon) also end in "ium" which is probably where the confusion arises.

Rhodium is not radioactive and is commonly used in jewelry.

One of the nice things about Rhodium is its excellent solderability. Even after prolonged storage, the terminal surfaces require no pre-solder cleaning for a superb result.

Here is an excellent summary of the advantages of rhodium plating, appearing on the web site of a Californian electroplating company:
