    sorry if this has been covered before :D

    i wanted to use banana plugs with the amp because i hate those screw down connections with a vengence

    have read a few posts on the issue on other forums and decided the best thing to do was ask yamaha

    the guy at yamaha said to take something like a biro and gently push it in the hole of the screw end cap - said 'centre piece' will pop out and allow the use of 4mm banana plugs - he in fact said they are designed to allow this :smashin:

    hope this helps

    I just gave the banana plugs a gentle push into the posts on my Yamaha 650 and the little bit of plastic just shoved in and they went straight in.

    yep, this is pretty much across the board for yammy amps it appears. Had same issue with our RXV1000RDS, just poke the plastic end bit in and bobs your uncle - banana plugs fit :)

    Yep - same here with my Yam HTR-5540RDS. A firm push and all seems fine.

    Well this about sums up the beauty of these forums. : :thumbsup: i was just cruisin thru, and you guys have just solved a problem I had, but didn't even think about asking here... Just came back from the Bristol sound and vision show.....popped in to see the Yamaha bods, and asked them about the posts at the back of my yamaha RXv1400 rds. :lesson: He said same just pop a 4mm banana plug into it with a bit of force no probs...... :nono: well sorry but I didn't believe him for a minute, and I decided to carry on with bare wire screwed down.........But now I am in the market for a whole bundle of banana plugs....thanks to you guys, well done
    any recommendations for quality and fairly priced 4mm plugs anyone????????????????

    ehayde,

    Try Maplin - they have budget priced plugs and slightly more expensive ones too...

    BTW - do you have to use that many smilies? - it was a bit distracting to read your post!

    I have used the gold banana plugs from Maplin at 1.99 each and they seem OK. Would have liked to have got something a bit better but as I had to buy 56 I was kind of working to a budget ;)
