    Banana Plugs: Closed Screw Type vs Open Screw Type? I ordered the open screw type of banana plugs by mistake. Should I returned them for the closed screw type? What is the audio or performance difference?

I am pretty confident with the 14g copper low voltage wire, but not so on the connections. My two fronts are Polk TSi100's and the satellites are JBL...

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Hi all, I haven't been looking at cables for a while as I undertook several side projects. I did my own DIY computer build. The motherboard was fault, so shortly after did my first computer disassembly, which was more nerve wracking than the build. Also been acquiring vintage turntables, so...
  12. Question about "Locking" Banana plugs

    System Setup and Connection
    Hi All. I hope this is the right place to post this question. I bought some "locking" banana plugs to terminate my speaker cables, but they do not fit into any of the binding posts on either of my receivers (Denon and Onkyo) or to the back of any of my speakers (Paradigm). That leads me to...

  15. Where to buy spade terminals / banana plugs?

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    I need one of the two for my new ML's. Probably spade terminals would work better. Where the banana pins plug into the ML terminals, the metal part on the ML terminal is recessed too far into the plastic wing nut and cannot get a good snug fit. The pins on my banana plugs are not long...

    I use my office as my "audio lab". Because of this I have my sub and speakers plugged in with banana plugs so I can more easily switch between speakers if I want to. I was wondering if there was a Female to Female banana plug adapter for when I wanted to cut my sub out of the loop. Anybody...
  18. Cheater Plugs OK with GFCI?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hi Guys: From what I know, a GFCI works in a similar way to a circuit breaker on a grounded outlet. It senses a voltage imbalance (short) as small as few milliamps between the hot and neutral and trips in 1/30 of a second. Does this afford the same protection as a grounded outlet? I have...
