If you have to go to those ends, there is something wrong with:
The system design
The power system
The only reason, IMHO, to go to those extremes is at a transmitter
plant, and I was part of team that successfully designed how to put
standard broadcast audio equipment in the control room of a Voice of
America shortwave transmitter (relay) station when the transmitter
hall outside had ten 500,000 watt transmitters. I was lead engineer
for the audio and control room portion of the design. And yes, we did
limited things like you describe, but not inside the control room.
IMHO if you need silver solder and there is a difference between
silver and lead solder, the noise currents are flowing in the wrong places.
