Two very enthusiastic thumbs up on this.

Have these on my speakers. Filed the gold plating off my speaker cable spades to reveal the bare copper underneath. I tighten with a small wrench. Some maintenance from time to time due to oxidization. Otherwise have never looked back. When I look at debates between gold, rhodium, etc plating, I just shake my head when the purest conductor is right there in front of you. And the plated versions cost more.

Using bare copper with some expected maintenance should fall on a list of "you know you're an audiophile when..."
