    I have acoustic energy aesprit series speakers, and i have bi-wired them onto my Denon3803 amp,
    As the ends (amp end) are bare wires, would it cut down the signal/degrade it in anyway if i solder over the ends before they go into the amp?

    Possibly unless you use solder with a high silver content, bare wires are fine to be honest, just twist them around to stop any small wire filaments poking out. Alternatively use banana plugs.

    I wouldn't worry about it. What do you think joins resistors, transistors and capacitors to the PCB tracks?

    If you are "cack" at soldering, you may be better off with the second set - the first set look like solder types while the second set are screw on.

    Just be careful with all metal banana plugs - it's very easy to touch them together (nothing a quick bit of tape can't fix though :) )
