Default Binding posts from ebay?

I'm in need for two pairs of new binding posts for my dMar-Kel70T build.
I found some Jantzen AudioTerminal 1 in Sweden for 138SEK/pair but that's quite expensive.

But I found these on ebay that are cheaper and just as good looking, but are they as good quality as the Jantzen ones?

Mundorf terminals are still very expensive. I do actually have a set of them here at home but they're meant for another build.

I guess I'll go with the Jantzen from Sweden then if nobody else can tell if the ones from Ebay are good or not. But 320SEK ($48) for a set of binding posts is still quite expensive.

Either of the ones you posted should be fine.

Warning! I'm a cheapskate. I see no reason why banana plugs and jacks won't satisfy.

I need speaker binding posts, not amplifier binding posts. I'm using 18mm thick panels.
I want something that has that clear plastic stuff, I think it looks cool.

Cut a big hole in the panel, maybe 100mm by 60mm
Glue and screw a thinner plate over the hole on the inside of the speaker.
Mount your terminals on that thinner plate.

The recess seen on the outside looks nice (in my view) and helps protect the terminals from knocks etc.

Thanks for the advice but I think I'll stick to my plan.

Montreal is pretty far away though, like on the other side of the planet. Remember that I live in Sweden, not in America.

Zman: Yes they're cheap and easy, but I want something that looks good too. That's why I want that clear plastic and either copper or silver (gold feels too mainstream).
