Well, you go take a blind test, then... everyone knows it conducts better or whatever, but it doesn't have any measurable effect on people.

Copper and silver are better conductors than gold.

if it's digital it works, or it doesn't work.

So first one you're waaaay off. Not true, but gold has lower resistance, that one is true. But it was said. But the second one? What logic has made you think that paying 7k bucks over let's say 50 bucks is justified by "longer lifetime". Do you plan to live for 7000 years? And if so do you plan to use the same audio cables?

Gold isn't a superconductor.
It's a better conductor than copper, which ordinarily is used, but it still has resistance. A superconductor is a material that has exactly no resistance.

Forgot to mention that super conducters usually only work in extremely low temperatures, making them useless in most practical situations.
User avatar #34 - TheMather (05/22/2015) [-]
That's inaccurate.
A superconductor is just a state any conductor can have, and it happens when the conductor is below a certain temperature specific to the material. So saying they don't work is false, they just simply aren't superconductors anymore.

Also room-temperature superconductors are something we're trying to achieve, which would be invaluable in more fields than you can accurately quantify.
User avatar #44 - XxAcexX (05/22/2015) [-]
Its my understanding that not any conductor can be a super conductor, and some super conductors are a less desirable conductor than everyday conductors if they are not in their super conductor state.
#43 - anonymous (05/22/2015) [-]
Not every conductor can achieve the superconducting state. It doesn't matter how much you cool gold, it will never reach zero resistance. The same applies to copper
User avatar #45 - TheMather (05/22/2015) [-]
Well, more like it's a thing that can happen only as far as the maths is concerned. Mathematically speaking, gold can reach superconductivity, but it would require a temperature lower than absolute zero. Which outside of emulation like what has been done with quantum gas is impossible in the realm of physics.
#6 - schittibrigitti (05/22/2015) [-]
actually pure copper is a better conductor. It simply get's more affected by oxigen that causes it to raise it's specific resistance. Gold is mostly used to secure the connections and to not have them be oxidized
