Banana plugs/Spades


Distinguished Member
No. Banana plugs make connecting/disconnecting easier. I use them on all 3 of my amps and all speakers (where I can).

If its down to money reasons then apart from ease of connection then yes. Less chance of cable working loose from binding post if you use a plug though.

I wouldn't worry, the speaker posts will not be silver, the wire the speaker posts are connected to will not be silver ...
