    Is there a sound difference between Spring clip speaker terminals and binding post speaker terminals? I would appreciate your comments.

    You want to get a secure contact with a decent sized cable.

    How you do it isn't that important and the connection type won't affect the sound.

    A binding post is likely to make a better connection though.

    With all the spring terminals i've encounterd, the words "secure connection" most definitely cannot be applied!!

    Don't know about sound difference, but ease of connection with binding posts, as well as the security is a damn sight easier. Trying to use any decent speaker cable with spring-clips is a pain - in terms of time, difficulty and physically! With binding posts, I also use banana plugs, as it makes connection easier and more secure, as well as looking tidier.
