I found my way onto Mundorf's website and their "Choosing the right coil wire" page.

There are some audiophile BS gems there. Incredibly, the most expensive materials seem to have the most beneficial effects on the sound!

Eg:

OFC copper
Coils that use oxygen-free copper (99.997% purity) as conductor material are characterised by a harmonic, stereophonic reproduction of music, rich in detail and an excellent price/performance ratio.

Pure silver
Due to their ability to reproduce voices and instruments in a more dynamic, detailed, spatial manner and with more timbres compared to copper coils, silver coils of highest purity (type 99.99%) are highly appreciated and preferred by a number of audio enthusiasts.

SilverGold
99% silver + 1% gold = 100% music. This does not only add up for capacitors such as the MCap® SUPREME SilverGold.Oil and audio cables, but also for coils. The high-purity gold (type 99.99%) changes the crystalline structure of silver and maximises its very good electric conductivity. Instruments and voices unfold their full range of timbres and their character is illuminated and becomes perceivable in all shades. On the one hand `crystal clear,´ the reproduction is at the same time vibrant and warm, embedded in a finely differentiated, location-true image. Purity and fine elegance combined with a vibrant character distinguish this exquisite material from all others!

Yup, outrageous, nonsensical, stupid, dishonest, incompetent garbage. IMH {subjective} O.

Whoever is behind that, well, hey, hi there! What's up with that? What do you have to say for yourself?

Thanks for calling it out for what it is. :cool:
