Default binding posts

What binding posts do you guys use for your amps?

I seem only to find the really expensive ones (WBT, Mundorf, Furutech and such) or the really cheap ones.

Is there a nice alternative in between? Or do I really have to use Speakons?

Have fun, Hannes

If you don't use bananas, Cardas Patented Binding Posts would be your best bet: http://www.cardas.com/content.php?ar...+Binding+Posts

Hi Peter, nice to see you're still around

Thanks for the hint for the Cardas! Where can I get them from? Partsconnexion?

By the way, in the meantime I figured out that there are some more alternatives on the market...just look into loudspeaker DIY-shops. Intertechnik also has some nice looking parts.

Have fun, Hannes

I'm not a big fan of the Cardas... if you need exotic the Eichmann are good... for good quality at a moderate price these ones from Parts Conexxion are our preferred ones

Too much metal in those. I have a growing collection of those that i've stripped out to replace with better, but less expensive plastic nut ones.
