RE: Cardas CCBP Unplated Copper Binding Posts

The superior conductivity of pure copper, including thermal heat conductivity and the energy storage capacity of copper is quite different than a brass connector, where the heat is better localized during the heat transfer process in order to quickly form a robust solder joint. I wonder if a high-mass copper binding-post were mounted on an aluminum heat sink, if the quick thermal conductivity of aluminum with its thermal dissipating storage characteristic might help transfer excess heat in a similar manner as an unused rca jack on the back of a VCR or such as recommended for cable terminations with Bullet Plugs, WBT NextGen, and KLE low-mass rca connectors. Either situation has to do with thermal dissipation.
