    Banana plugs - where to start

    I’ve just bought my daughter a TEAC turntable and Steljes Audio NS3 speakers. I’d like to put plugs on the speaker wire so that it is easier for her to move them around. I’m told I need banana plugs. I’ve googled and they all look slightly different. What should I get? This is all new to me...

    Question QAcoustics 2050i and banana plugs...

    Hi all. This might be a silly question...but does anyone connect to their QAcoustics 2050i speakers with banana plugs? I'm trying to install them but the binding post doesn't seem deep enough to fully accept the plug. That is to say they won't go all the way in. Am I being dopey?! Thanks.
