I bought an AVR 2805 a few months ago to replace an Arcam Alpha 9 and a Yamaha DSP-A595. Before I bought it, I downloaded the manual from the US website, and saw that it used banana plugs for the speaker terminals, so I went out and bought 12 new plugs for all my cables. When I got the 2805 unpacked, I tried to plug in one of the new plugs, and discovered it wasn't going in. On peering at the socket, it seemed that the hole was far too small for a 4mm banana, so I resorted to using bare wires. The terminals on the 2805 are very poor - particularly with thick speaker cable - really not what I expected from a £700 amplifier. I was digging around on the web today to see if I could find any supplier of small bananas to fit the 2805, and made the happy discovery that the 2805 terminals would take standard 4mm bananas if you pulled the plastic sleeves out of them. Sure enough, I tried it, and it works - after a bit of experimentation, I found that a small self-tapping screw tightened a few turns into the sleeve in the terminal gave enough grip to be able to pull it out, leaving a 4mm socket. I've seen blanking caps over 4mm sockets before, but I haven't seen sleeves that fit inside them before, which is why I hadn't realised they were removable. If you've got a 2805, try it - the sleeves come out with no damage, and can be put back in quite easily. Everyone else may already know about this, in which case, my apologies - but I didn't!
