    hello, just got new amp, harmon kardon 7500 and it seems to accpet banana plugs for the speaker connections!

    now im a complete noob, so can i just use bare speaker cable or do i need to get some banana plugs???

    its just that when you unscrew the terminal things theres no hole in the middle like there is on back of speaker and on my old denon amp.

    thanks

    Personally, I don't think it matters that much.
    The advantage with plugs is you can easilly disconnect them, and that's it.
    As long as you have a sound connection, you're OK.
    Oh, I suppose with plugs you're less likely to get a short, but if you're careful, it's not a issue, IMO.

    there doesnt appear to be much room once you unscrew the terminal, do i wrap the wire round them and then screw the terminals back on???

    all systems are go! just tuned it into the radio just now as i dont have a tv or dvd player til end of week!

    will need to study the manual til i know what im doing so when i get everything its just a simple case of plugging it in and bingo.

    sounds amazing just now though!

    thanks
