    Can someone please tell me *exactly* how to remove the plastic caps on the speaker connections on a Denon 3802? All I want to do is connect my cables via banana plugs, rather than having to shoehorn a bit of frayed wire into the hole and tighten the plastic wotsits.

    I'd like to do this without damaging the screwable plastic red / black wotsits if possible!

    I've tried poking around with a small screwdriver with the wotsit tightly screwed in and also screwed out to the maximum - but no success yet.

    These plastic caps are a real pain - though I suppose maybe someone sometime did think it was a mains socket .... But that's what natural selection is there for, isn't it?

    Cheers for any help,

    very thin screwdriver best [i have a set, watchmaker type] dont fanny about being to gentle or they wont budge, push in side firmly then give a sharp flick! youll have the buggers firing across the floor in no time.

    Thanks - that sorted that problem out. Now I just need to sort my watchmakers screwdriver out - it is not quite as straight as it used to be ....

    I used a pair of thin 'long-nose' pliers.
    It was peasy!. Just gently insert one of the 'noses' into the hole and then pull it out. The teeth on pliers grip it on the way in, so it has to come out when you remove the pliers.

    This is a technical method that I haven't come across before.
