    Have a pair of Xindak FS-01 speaker cables and I should connect banana plugs at the amp end and spades at the speaker end. The cables have directional marking on small silver cylinders, which precede each end of termination. No problems for the speaker end, but I dont see any good (normal) way to connect banana plug to the 4306 speaker terminal. Is there any possibility to do it? Do I need some adapter? Removing (cutting) banana plugs and plugging in pure wire will not work due to cable design and dia.
    Thanks for any help.

    You should be able to remove the small plugs in the end off the terminals on the rear of the amp,I used to use a small Allen key but have been advised that a small wood screw does a botter job...If you have a close look you will see these plugs which are black in the middle of the screw tight fastener....Alan....

    Agreed, I was fooled by this on my original 3802 and on the 4306.
    the 3802 had solid plugs filling the banana socket on the speaker terminal.
    They plugs with small holes in the middle were much easier to remove on the 4306.

    I used a screw to remove them as well.

    have just done this with a 4306, yes just screw in a small screw far enough to bite on the plastic insert and then pull out with a pair of pliers. just for those who don't know I think they tried to stop banana plugs being used because they are of a size that can be pushed into UK mains sockets - hence the plastic bungs for the UK market.

    Just out of interest, does anyone really believe in directional copper???? or is that too controversial

    Personally the only time I can consider a cable directional is if the shielding is only grounded at one end. other than that it doesn't make sense to me.

    just my 2 c

    As stated above leads can be directional for various reasons, earthing being the most prevalent. In the past people have been burnt at the stake for making some of the claims cable makers and their desciples do, but thankfully we now live in more enlightened times! ;)
