Are gold plated connectors significantly better?

    Prices vary when you buy a cable, a noticeable difference is when you choose one which is gold plated. I assume the reason is not because of the bling factor B) but because of some technical benefit that makes the image better.

    Have you noticed any difference between normal and gold plated?

    I have wondered about that for years! I grew up always being told (by the males in my family) that the gold plated cables were always the best and don't buy anything else. What Ever! So, I'm like you, I would really like to know if there really is a difference and if that difference justifies the difference in cost.
