Hi Brett.
Main reason is that I had to replace few of them that went faulty.
As it is spring loaded contact with small area ,I more like the binding post with greater area and force.
But that's just my opinion .

Were they Neutrik? I can't imagine how they could break - they are very robust.

I like to use Neutrik connectors for everything. They are widely available, look great, are robust, well-made and all fit the same hole. They also sell for sensible prices. I think someone would have to provide pretty substantial evidence to make me want to change.

Since they are used commercially, surely the equipment used to record the music you listen to will have Neutrik connectors? Nuff said.

I bought some non-Neutrik femail Speakon connectors for cable (as Neutrik does not make this) ... and these where of a totally different build quality ... looks good, but I'm sure will not last half the time of the real stuff from Neutrik ....

But it would be very interesting to get some feedback on this from people like huberto75 who are using these connectors in PA equipment and sees the equipment for service...

Actually...

NEUTRIK SPEAKON NLT4FX Female cable

They also make in-line couplers:

NEUTRIK SPEAKON NL4MMX In-line coupler

I don't work for Neutrik BTW

Agreed. I dunno how any reasonably sensible person could damage them, especially domestically. When I had for hire PA systems they used Speakons and the klutzes that hired the systems never managed to break one.

I have had the binding pins inside the male connector roll out of the plastic casing instead of locking in the early versions of the cheap copies. I posted this photo earlier, the ones with the cross should be avoided if possible.

the later version cheap copies that are tapered seem fine.
