    I've not used those particular ones, I got some crimp on ones that do the same job. If you can't use banana plugs like on my Arcam they are very useful :thumbsup:

    Yeh they look the same as the ones I got from CPC. I used them on Arcam Alpha 8r/8p amps that could not take banana plugs.

    Hi,
    I bought these ones instead, it was still off the same user btw....
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=295&item=5730669197&rd=1

    They are extremely heavy duty, im also glad i only bought them for the speakers, theres no way they would fit inside my Sony Strde-875, far too thick, top quality by looks, feel and performance. Just remember pressing buy it now will only get you 1 plug, so for a pair, make sure you buy 2 :)

    I use the very same plugs :thumbsup: They do the job nicely and can cope with thickest of cables.

    I wont ruin your day by telling you how much they cost if you buy a full set of 20 for a 5.1 setup ;) :)

    Cheers, Mylo

    Hi John :) , CPC see link above or see this direct link :thumbsup: http://custom1.farnell.com/cpc/product.asp?catalog_name=CPC+Catalogue&product_id=256680

    To be fair the guy is not making as much profit on these but we are here to save each other money :smashin: Prices are + vat and del but while you are looking you may as well get some speaker cable or any other hardware you need. Delivery is free on orders over £30+ vat. I'm not sure if you have to open an account to qualify but it's free to do so and you get the huge catalogue sent to you for nothing. Otherwise a standard delivery charge of £3.99+ vat may apply. If you join I doubt you'll regret it :smashin:
    Or if you go that way pop into the Trade counter at Preston.
    Cheers, Mylo :)

    yeah, but if you look at the above image - you'd probably think it was a 5p, but it's really a 10p coin!! :laugh:
