    I have a few Marantz MA 700 monoblock amplifier. Does anyone know if it can be replaced those cheap RCA with gold RCA jack? If it can be replaced then do you know any place that sell gold RCA jack? Thanks

    I wouldn't bother. You will not gain anything. The gold plated connectors are mainly there because people have come to expect it and associate it with 'better'. In fact, gold is only used because it is a noble metal and doesn't corrode. It's a terrible conductor and distorts audio, but it does so in a 'mellow' way.
    If you would go through the time and expence to change them, get silver ones.
