Binding posts/banana sockets are generally 3/4" apart.

Which is the same as the 19 mm spacing for power sockets on the wall here in the Netherlands and many other countries in Europe

Cheers

One of my famous audio designer buddies once built a line of amps with the spacing at 1.0", so that no one could use a standard binding post adaptor.

Yep, he did it on pupose because he hates them so much.

And to think, some of you guys think that I am the only "wise guy" in the business.......................[joke]

I'll go for 19mm (19.05 if I can) between the RCAs and the bananas.

With 5 pair of RCA, and 2 pair of bananas, that will be an elegant line
