'ang on Andrew, I 'as to pull me tongue outta me cheek.



That's better. I'm not one of those that believes there is magic in a connector. It needs to be able to conduct the current adequately and not oxidize into a poor connection.
These fit the bill.

Thanks for all your suggestions! Lots of nice parts here

As I don't bother with sound differences between connectors and such, I do like nice looking, quality parts. The Connex parts would fit my bill

Have fun, Hannes

I take my breaks where I can get them Dave. They are an excellent deal. I like some of the ones available from Digikey:

Default These are very good and cheap

Best @ Apex

One trick is to not solder to the post, but rather, run the wire out through holes next to the posts and use the posts as a compression terminal to clamp the speaker cable to the output leads. Bypass the post nearly entirely, for simplest path.
