    I was just looking at the backs of the 2105 and the 2805(Denon) and I noticed a difference in the binding posts. Would it be right to say that the 2105 needs either bare wire or spades? I am not familiar with these types of connections as my current receiver has spring clamps

    No one? I thought this would be an easy answer

    They are 5-way binding posts and can accept bare wire (I don't recommend that), spade, angle connector, or banana plug (my personal choice).

    Just tighten the post and insert the banana plug in the center hole.

    Banana plugs and binding post are all standard. They may look slightly different or one may be a 5-way while the other is not, but bananas should fit exactly the same in both.

    If there is no hole visible there may be plastic inserts in there, just pop them out. A few pairs of speakers and my integrated amp came like that.
