Just curious to know anyone out there with information on those sexy winged knob binding posts used on the bigger X-series amp and also on some Mark Levinson products.

Don't seem find them anywhere on the web, reinforce my suspicion that they could be custom made.

The Mark Levinson's are custom made, as stated at http://www.soundstage.com/revequip/m...son_no383.htm.

I'd love to get some of these for my creations...

You may want to check out Vampire Wire binding post model BFBP, shown at http://www.vampirewire.com in the Chassis Connectors section of their Shockwave-based catalog.

The Tee Nut binding posts on the Pass Labs products are made to order, and designed to meet current import regulations for Europe and Asia.

Look in a catalogue for electric equipment...
The stuff used on the smaller types of welding gear is perfect....or go for the BIG ones (200 amps++++)

welding gear material usually uses beryllium copper, was wondering if this material's suitable for audio purposes.

Jokes aside--
the smaller binding posts for "normal" currents ( up to 50A ??)are usually relatively pure copper or copper /brass combinations. I have a stock for my own purpose,--will check the make of these...BTW--I have also seen these advertised as "heavy duty battery connectors"

Belling Lee has some large binding posts ( 1" round knobs) that are rated 30A+. There is also a 6 mm version of the normal lab binding posts. The Neutrik Speakon, used for professional PA, is also a very good connector.
