Binding post issue

Having ordered banana plugs I have just realised my 80s Technics integrated has these things on the back, which took bare wire held in by a twist of the plastic lug.

Is there any better way? Replace? Different type of plug? I don’t really want to ram some bare litz wire in there.


Title typo?

Thinking back to my student amp, that is your only choice.

Surely bare wire is better than any plug. If there is any difference. Not that my ears could tell.

It’s sorted. Bare wire. Just a little messy when the speaker wire has a fine litz braiding.

It’s all working. Just got to remember how to wire up a tape deck and graphic equaliser now! I have a screen shot somewhere.
The bedroom system (charity shop AE aegis speakers and old technics cd) is sounding pretty good!).


Tin the wires - :ram: them in

It’s all this palava next.

Bin the graphics

Did anyone ever bother using them in the 70s/80s?

It was a raffle prize at the other place, my first Scalford (along with a cassette deck).

More for shits, giggles and curiosity. I can’t see it staying.
The cd sounds bloody good out the speakers, which is surprising as they are against a wall, in a corner, and 80s DAC reasons.

I’m curious to play a few old cassettes to see if they melt as they turn. I need about a million cables and more patience, so it’s just cd for now.

Which is why expensive ‘audiophile’ foo interconnects did not exist back in the day.
